This picture of Kaidnece and Kirby made me laugh. I walked in and Kirby had layed next to Kaidnece and fallen asleep. We had Cardiology today. Kaidence's WBC was down slightly but still high. The Cardiologist talked with the hemo. doctor about her blood and he felt that things may still be high from the shots and her cold that she has. Her blood cultures all came back negative so that is great news. He doesn't seemed worried at this point, so I won't either. We need Kaidence to get over the cold that she has so that we can continue with the procedure and heart biopsy that is being done next week. It has already been cancelled once from her having a low ANC I just want to get it over with. They will fix her left pulmonary artery (LPA) that has been crushed and also take biopsy pieces of her heart and check for an signs of rejection. We hope that everything will look good. Kaidence had her first physical therapy with Early Intervention on Tuesday. Hopefully we can work on a couple of things and she will just take off. She did very well, not to pleased about the whole thing though. One problem she has is feeling confident. Because she was such a sick baby (and hooked to a heart pump) Kaidence never got the normal "throw your baby in the air and spin them around" fun. Because of this she gets very nervous and feels insecure if she feels a little unsteady or too free. Her appetite is still not that great. However, she does love to chew on pickles. Hopefully things will pick up when she starts feeling better.
Camden has been sick as well and I think that this is where Kaidence's all stemmed from. Yikes, I might have to keep everyone home from school and church to keep them from always getting sick. We really don't go anywhere else and so I think those two places are the GDC (Germ Distribution Centers.) OK, I guess we had better keep sending them (when healthy, which hasn't seemed often lately). He has had a very mucous like cough, vomiting and ear drainage. Hasn't been the happiest thing either, but I can't say that I blame him.
McCaden is doing well. He was listening to his primary cd's the other night at bed time and about an hour later came out of his room crying. I asked what was wrong and he said "I just love Heavenly Father and Jesus so much. They are so good to everyone." I am glad that my little 6 year old can have those moments that will touch his heart and prepare him to gain his own testimony. Also, he has decided that he wants to live with us forever. I told him that I would love that. I told him that maybe he should live really close to us when he has a family. Sorry Ostler's, but McCaden decided that he is buying your house when he gets big and digging a secret tunnel with a punch code combination over to my house. He discusses the plans with me every night.
Mike and I are doing well. Mike has been very busy with work and school and I have been doing the same old, playing nurse and mommy to my kiddos that I love!
Please keep praying for Gracie!
