So I went home last night and slept very well. Kaidence however had a rough night. One of her internal lines that draws blood and gives an acurate blood pressure went bad and they had to place a new line. Her heart rate was in the 190's and continues to be. She has suddenly spiked a fever and we are not sure what it is from. We need her fever to drop and get her heart rate under control. She has an ultrasound scheduled to look at some blood clots that have formed in her body and another echo. We are going nuts. I have tried to find a Christmas Stocking kit for Kaidence to give my nervous hands something to do tonight and tomorrow but have been unsuccesful. I need to keep my mind busy. I am excited and scared all at the same time. I just pray that if this surgery is meant for Kaidence that she can get over whatever is giving her this fever so that she can have the surgery tomorrow. I may go crazy if it gets moved again.

Tomorrow during the surgery we will be in the waiting room. I will have my laptop with me so that I can update the blog. I promise to give updates as often and as soon as we get them. They may be short but it's at least information. So keep posted and Thanks for everything.

Little Ian 's funeral was today and my thoughts and prayers continue to be with his family. We love and miss them.

It's good you'll have your laptop with you tomorrow because you will want someting to keep you busy. The waiting room is not easy (it was my least favorite experience with Taryn at PCMC) so prepare yourself up for that. You may want some ear buds to listen to some calm music and to block out the other parents there who won't be nearly as stressed as you are. :) Good Luck! I'll be thinking about you and praying for Kadience all day tomorrow.

We'll be praying for you all tomorrow as well (and included Kaidence in our fast on Sunday). May the Lord grant you His choicest blessings.
