A hole in the forhead and stiches for Miss K!

I just think that I need to go to bed for a couple of days. This afternoon I decided to go in the basement to get a quick nap because I could hide from the kids. Mike was upstairs with the kiddos when Kaidence decided to fall and put a gaping hole in her forehead. We are guessing that sh e tripped and hit the corner off the crown molding on the floor and the corner angle of the banister. Holy cow, I have always known that heads bleed a lot but...........it was EVERYWHERE!!! My boys were panicked and absolutely upset, I thought about it though, with all she has been through she was always cleaned up by the time they saw her. They were very upset to say the least. Kaidence had a cut on the top of her head and the hole in her forehead (and I mean a HOLE). We got plenty of stares from people in the ER because blood was still everywhere. Tonight the ER said they set a record for being the busiest and I believe them. We just needed stitches and it took us 5 hours of waiting. Kaidence did great, but was not happy. They had her wear some heart shaped sunglasses while they stitched her up. She kept saying over and over "no owies". They refused to put her out like they said they would if she were 'normal'. They worried about her heart, BUT she has a beautiful healthy heart now. It just still freaks out the doctors that aren't cardiologist, because she has been transplanted. They stitched up Kaidences forehead in layers and we are now home.

Has this week been long, or is it just me? I am exhausted and I am going to bed!!!

Holy crow girl! What a week from you know where. Thanks for thinking of Ryker. It does the heart good to hear people say things since it seems like he came and was here such a short time. I have just the memories and those who remember him that help make me believe that those seven weeks he was here were real. I hope this makes sense. I hope though that little Miss Kaidence will not have to be back there to soon. We love you guys and pray for sweet Miss K!

Hi. My name is Sierra. I was just wondering if you had an email address. My little girl was diagnosed in September of last year with a heart disease, there are some things I want to ask you. And since I see that you are very knowledgeable in the heart area, I was hoping you may want to answer some of these for me. Thanks. My blog is www.jaxashmommy.blogspot.com.
