She is so precious! My family and I are keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers this Christmas/Holiday season. I can't wait to hear the updates after the holidays, and will be praying for good news! (And just so you know, add thebump.com to your list of admirers. I've seen a button on many-a-signature of other mothers and expectant moms like me!)

Merry Christmas to you and your family. My family is praying for your beautiful little girl. Not sure if you are aware but there is a website called Caringbridge where families that have an ill family member can open a page for others to follow any progress and such. It's a wonderful website and might be something to check out. In our thoughts and prayers.

She is a beautiful baby. I love that she's the same size as her stocking, and that they both have tutu's on. Absolutely adorable. I'll be thinking and sending prayers your way tomorrow and every day after that.

Brandi, I am from the Nov 10 BBC board and I just want to say that I have told everyone I can about baby Scarlett. We are truly praying for a miracle for her. I have been checking the blog almost everyday...as soon as you are able to figure out the best way to handle donations, I know PLENTY of people will be doing what they can. Also, just a suggestion, but when my 3 year old niece was diagnosed with Leukemia we went around to local businesses (fast food places, restaurants, banks...anywhere we could) and put a jar out asking for donations and taped a typed piece of paper with her story on it. Also, I don't know if you have heard of this or not, but you should check out the caringbridge website. I think, but I'm not certain, that you can receive donations through that website. I don't know if these are already things you have thought of but I just wanted to mention them and let you know that there are so many people praying for Scarlett and your family. I wish I could hug you!!! Stay strong, mama. God performs miracles every single day.

Your story is so heartbreaking, My daughter was born Sept 11th and I cannot imagine what you both are going through. Every morning and night I say a prayer for her to be healthy and safe, I will throw your daughter in my prayers now. In one of your older posts you had said you were having trouble breastfeeding her so you were just pumping and giving her a bottle. I know you have alot on your plate but if you had your heart set on breastfeeding there is this thing called Supplemental Nursing System. I used it with my daughter and it slowly taught her how to nurse. It is kind of a hassle and I only did it when we were both in a good mood but it worked. We no longer use it (except to give her her zantac because she hates the taste.) Since you have such close connections with doctors right now, you could probably get the stuff you need from them, an iv line (cut the end off) and 20cc syringe is what we use.

I hope everything turns out for your beautiful angel. Know that she is now loved by thousands of people, and the support for you and your family will only grow over the next few months as your story reaches out to everyone. Merry Christmas, I hope you receive the second best gift (second of course to Scarlett!) in a few short days.

Praying for you and yours. She is absolutely precious. I am praying you be lifted up in this time. "No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that rises against you shall be proven to be in the wrong." Don't accept any negative words from the doctor or anyone else. Only listen to what God tells you. :) She really is beautiful.
