Long Night

Thank You SO much for those that have fasted and prayed for Kaidence today. I had what I call a "Hospital Sunday." Those are Sundays when you feel extremely humbled and the spirit feels so strong..... Regardless of last night serious lack of sleep.

Kaidence's night last night was awful, to say the least. Her headache was severe, nausea and vomiting was literally every 5 minutes. We could night keep any pain reliever in her, within 2 minutes of giving it, it came back up from about 7pm -3 AM. Then the body aches kicked in.

Last night was spent catching throw up, trying to keep her from throwing up, 2 am store run, body aches, ice packs for her head, worry about fast heart rate, trying to find a magic way to run her feeds so she would keep them down, debating on a trip to the ER, sleeping on the floor and so on. The poor little girl would nicely ask each time for her throw up bowl. Around 2:30 Mike gave Kaidence a blessing while I held her in my arms. Before it was over, she was asleep. At that time we decided to give her 30 minutes to try to keep down feeds, if not we were heading to the ER. This is too much with her recent rejection episode. She didn't throw up the rest of the night.

Today she seemed to do ok. She laid around more then usual but seemed ok. Tonight she is getting a fever and her nausea seems to be making a come back. I hope that we can at least keep it in control tonight. She is tired and so are Mike and I.

Once again Thanks to everyone. Last night I found much peace as well knowing that today she was being fasted for. I will keep everyone posted and hopefully this will subside in the next day or two. Love to you all!
