Happy 8 Month Birthday Kaidence!!!!!

Apparently the doctors forgot to tell Kaidence just how sick she really is. Kaidence woke up this morning wanting to play with her mommy. I even got another smile despite the tubes and tape that is all over her mouth. Needless to say they aren't pleased with her level of activity. The medical team wants her to be completely still, but Kaidence has another idea. I am just glad to see that she still has some fight in her. They have given her multiple doses of heavy duty narcotics the past 3 hours but she is having none of it. I can honestly say I have not seen her this active and playful in about 13 days. She looks so great. Like a normal baby and the crazy thing about it is that while she is pulling her legs to her chest and crabbing and shaking her toys like crazy - She is NOT sweating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can you believe it has been exactly 1 year today since my grandma, Kaidence name sake has passed away? I have missed her so much but at the same time I am glad that she is where she can watch over Kaidence and give her some comfort. Some days I think that she may be the only visitor that Kaidence knows is there. It is also Kaidence's 8 month birthday today. Happy 8 month Birthday Sis!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!

Telle I wish I could see kaidence in her "active" mode, it's been a while since I have seen her playing and smiling, but I'm glad you were there to catch her smile. Thats crazy that the narcotics haven't done anything for her. I guess she's a strong little fighter just like grandma. I'm sure grandma's up there proud as can be telling everyone about her little Kaidence. I know for sure that she would be so proud of you and Mike as well for not giving up hope and for being so faithful.
were lucky to have her as Kaidences special angel! Love you all lots, tell kaidence Lyse will be up tomorrow to see her.

Happy 8 month birthday Kaidence. This morning is a peaceful morning just like the day that you were born. I wish I could of been there today to see you play. I haven't seen that for weeks and I long to see you smile as I walk into the room or see you wave. Because of all the narcotics Kaidence has slept a lot with no intercation. It's hard to see her like this.

Unforunatley I'm not feeling very well so I can't go to the hospital and see you until I'm on top of things. I hope you still in a playful mood towards the end of the week.

I visited with Grandpa today and went to the cemetery to take some some flowers and a letter I wrote to Grandma. I know her spirit's not there but it made me feel better doing this. I miss my Mom so much, especially thru all of this. I'm so thankful for her example thru the years. Daily I think I need to call and let her know what's going on but realize I can't. I know she's close by and watching over Kaidence. Sometimes Kaidence has a stare going on where nothing will distract her, I think Mom's close by watching over her little angel.

I'm so thankful for wonderful parents that have been great examples to me in my life. I've been so blessed in my life with a loving husband and wonderful children and grand children.

Even though this is a challenging time we are so blessed.
