UPDATE #1

So I can maybe type now without shaking. I was answering the door just as the phone rang and so McCaden answered the phone. "Shauntelle, it's Emily" is all that had to be said and I knew and at that exact second my heart broke in two. I have a breaking, thankful and joyful heart all at the same time. Who knew that was possible? The surgeon just called and said that the surgery has been pushed back to 3:00 am so we have a long night ahead. Kaidence is happy as can be. We gave her a bath and put her hair into pigtails (because it makes her spunky) and mike painted her toenails a lovely pink. Thank You for all of your prayers.

You are doing great to have stopped shaking- Just so you know, I will be awake the whole way through if you need to call and cry, shout for joy, scream, or do all at once, which you could see we did at times. We know the feeling. We are so excited for you guys and proud of Kaidence to have kept such a sweet little appearance in all of her trial. These are special little kids-- what can we say! We'll be awake and watching for your updates, however no pressure! There is a numbing sensation in that waiting room- totally understand. Love you guys.

You, the doctors, Kaidence - all of you are in our prayers. Love always, Wendy & Sarah & Lila & Scott & Quisha & Lisa & Yvonne and on and on...
