This afternoon I got the link to the 7 minute version of Kaidence's Miracle story for the Children's Miracle Network. Here is the link to the longer version. The video starts out the same as the shorter version that has been on the right side of my blog but this one has more of her story in the middle of it. More picture, more video more about organ donation. It is my favorite version.
Here is the link. If you want to watch it in HD there is a button on the video bar that you can scroll down and change to HD.

All seems to be going ok here.We have coughs and runny noses, but who doesn't this time of year? We have been having a hard time keeping Kaidence hydrated. Kaidence has been throwing up any night feeds that she gets and has taken on the attitude of 'who needs food?' This has been going on for a few weeks but somehow have managed to keep her out of 'you know where' and for that we are always grateful.

Today my heart has broken for the Gledhill Family. May the Lord continue to bless them with the things that only HE knows they need. We will be fasting tomorrow for the Gledhill family and for Gracie Gourley, please feel free to join with us. Life is fragile, let us always remember this and hold those we love a little closer.

Happy Birthday little Kaidence! WE love you so much and are everyday grateful that you have blessed our lives. We are better because of you and the lessons that you have taught us. You have come so far. You are walking, talking, signing, climbing, laughing and you hardly ever cry. You are so happy, so content, so amazing! I am thankful that you finally have the chance to be a healthy little girl. I am so grateful for the trials that we have seen. These trials make us who we are today, not only as individuals but as an eternal family. We have seen miracle after miracle. The Lord's hand is in all things. You have paved the way for so many others both medically and spiritually. Your life gives HOPE to those that need it. Heavenly Father has BIG plans for you Kaidence. I love you baby girl and give thanks everyday that I hear that little heart beating away in your chest. HAPPY 2ND BIRTHDAY!

Yesterday Kaidence had a party at her Nanny and Bompa's with many of her cousins. She loved opening the presents and insisted on getting off every piece of paper and tape before she would even pay any attention to the gift. Tonight we celebrated with dinner and treats (none of which Kaidence ate) at home with her Nanna and Pappa, great grandpa and Auntie. My sister , husband and her kiddos are all sick and had to miss the fun Princess Party! Kaidence loved us singing "Happy Birthday" to her. Her most favorite gift is a microphone that plays music and can record herself singing. Unfortunately her brothers like it just as much as she does. Thank You Paula and Angie, they dropped by a bunch of cute HEART balloons ( I love HEARTS these days) and gave me a little visit as well ( I love visits too).
Please continue to pray for all of our Heart Friends. So many of them need you extra prayers tonight!

Gracie received a new heart today but is having some very serious complications. Gracie and her family need your prayers now more than ever. Tonight my heart is breaking for this family. I know the Lord has a plan for Gracie as he does for each one of us. It has been a very long 24 hours for their family and they have a long ways to go, please remember them in your prayers.
This is a picture of Gracie last night after they found out that she was getting a new heart.
