Please pray for our dear friends and their sweet little Mason. We first met Summer and Mark when Mason was Life Flighted to PCMC. He was only a couple of days old. I remember thinking how tiny he was. We have spent much time together in the PICU and have kept in touch since. Please send your prayers their way. They need the guidance and comfort that can only come from our Heavenly Father. I know without a shadow of doubt, that we were carried by angels on some of our darkest days because of the prayers and fasting offered in our families behalf. They were the days that while I prayed and pleaded, I knew the Lord was kneeling right beside me with His arms wrapped around me. May they also be blessed with the same comfort and peace.

Yes, we are once again home. I am so sorry that I did not post sooner, but I have been so tired from little Miss K thinking that she need not sleep. Anyhow, we cam home Saturday afternoon. Kaidence looked much better and is able to handle her secretions much better. We think that the combo of the pain medication (because it can suppress the respiratory system), her thick secretions and cough all caused her to her airway to have a spasm that immediately closed off. She did not seem to lose consciousness and I really doubt that she ever had a seizure. Her saturations took the day to recover and get back to where they were normally, but they did. Her fevers stopped that night in the hospital.

Kaidence is soooooo grumpy. This is NOT like her at all. It almost seems like I brought home a totally different child. She does not want anyone to look at her, she wants to be held (but not be held). She is not sleeping during the night. I find her on the floor, sleeping with wooden blocks under her back and head. She just is not herself. I have loved spending time with Kaidence. I have just never seen her so miserable. She is starting to drink and I did get a smile tonight!!!! We are almost a week out, one more to go!
