Kaidence has had 2 of the 3 test. What they thought was a blood clot is just stitches and what a big relief that was for everybody. She went and had her diaphragm test and all of that is normal. None of the nerves have been damaged she just has a big, strong healthy heart. I don't think I have ever said that before. We are taking her to the OR around 4:00 to have them open up her voice box and check all of the vocal chords. I hope that goes well. Kaidence woke up and was looking all around. I walked to her bedside to talk to her and she started kicking her legs. She then starting pushing her little bottom up. That is her sign that she wants you to pick her up and of course I can't with the breathing tube in her. Needless to say that made her mad and her blood pressure showed it so they had to paralyze her again. I think that once she can get extubated things will be easier on her and they won't have to keep her as drugged.

OH, I am glad to read that it wasn't a blood clot.
I hope that things go well as they look at her voice box.
I think that is great that she wants to you to hold her too. Now, if she can just be patient a little longer. . . she will be in your arms very soon.

It's SO wonderful to hear that Kaidence is doing so well. Having been down this same road before with Noah, there is nothing that pleases me more. We will continue to pray for Kaidence and look forward to a happy and healthy future!
