Mike and I went to the hospital tonight and packed up Kaidence's room. We had A LOT to move as was expected after being there 98 days straight. WOW!!!! kaidence was an amazing BINGO player at the hospital because every week they play and she seems to win. Even when she was in the OR. We came home with many fun toys and blankets thanks to the many that donate and make life more normal for all of the children at the hospital. It has been bitter sweet and we said our goodbyes to many of those that work nights. A few tears but I survived. I hear the same thing from those that come and say goodbye to Kaidence. They all say what a miracle she is and that they were not sure that we would ever get to take her home. We are so very blessed. Kaidence will hopefully be spending her last night tonight and so Mike and I had a farewell meal together at the one and only "Rainbow Cafe"...

We will post more tomorrow. Thanks for all of the love.

I'm sure everyone at the hospital will miss Little Kaidence. She has been an inspiration to all of us. Primary Children's is the best. Have a wonderful day!

Love, Darlene

I know this starts a whole new wonderful and yet scary journey with getting used to all those meds, but you are going to do GREAT! I can't get over how wonderful this is that now you can all be home together as she continues to recover and live life to the fullest. Next big day. . .her 1st birthday! What a celebration that is going to be.
We love you guys and continue to keep you in our prayers.

I hoped to at least wave to her one more time before she left the hospital, but know that our prayers and thoughts are with you as you start on this new journey. I wish you the best, your family has been an inspiration in my life as I have read your blog and kept up on the happenings! I will continue to follow her progress.
