Kaidence is doing well. She has started eating better and taking some of her formula by sippy cup. We will most likely keep her on high calorie formula for a while until she is eating regular food more consistently. We also finished a whole jar of baby food within a 24 hour time period. She really likes "vegetable chicken." She will now stand sometimes if you hold her under her arms. She is such a great baby. You would think that her schedule would be all messed up but it is not. We had a cardiology appt. today and her ANC is down to .5 from .8. I am a little frustrated because no one can give me real answers to my questions. I am tired of people telling me "don't worry about it until you have to." What parent in their right mind wouldn't worry about it? We are not sure if we will do the marrow testing yet or not. Thursday will tell us more. I am afraid that Kaidence's numbers were only that high (and not even very high) just because of the shot she was give. I am afraid that tomorrow it will be completely worn off and that her numbers will drop. OK. Maybe I am a little stressed. It is just the not knowing that makes me crazy. Please pray for our little Kaidence.

Well, it took me so long to post this next part because I was not allowed to post the news before the Bennions. Shalyse and Mike had a baby boy. Westin Michael weighed 7lbs 1 oz. 19.5 inches long. He is a cutie. I will try to get a picture posted.

Happy Saint Patricks Day!

Try not to pull all of your hair out, you need to save some of it when she becomes a 10 yr old going on 25 and loves rolling her eyes at you. I believe sometimes people think they are helping when they tell you not to worry but that is when we worry the I will just tell you to keep the worry in the back of your mind and focus on her eating a whole jar of baby food in one day. That is quite an accomplishment! Before you know it she will be eating you out of house and home with her brothers!!!

We are all pulling for you. I know how frustrating it can be when there is something wrong but no one can give you any answers. Try to keep your chin up. Worrying is just a moms job I think so don't feel bad for it. As always our prayers are with you.
