I guess an update is in order

Please excuse my mood...long, rough afternoon.

The cultures are back: Kaedra has three nasty bacteria. Pseudomonas is one of them and I didn't recognize the other two. Apparently this whole episode has been extremely serious with really, really nasty bugs. However, she is mostly over the dangerous part and on her way to feeling better.

We have had 2 IVs put in today and two x-rays (I don't know the results yet, the doctor was too busy to look at them). We are getting a PICC line put in tomorrow. Thank goodness they are going to sedate her for that. She will be on IV antibiotics for three weeks. She is on three different antibiotics.

Doctor said she won't be able to come home until Friday at the earliest, but most likely Monday. I freaked out a little. Not for Kaedra so much, but for my other kiddos at home. Michael asked his mother to come and stay with us until we can come home. That made me feel a lot better.

I did have one really nice thing happen today. My friend Tamara and her daughter Brittany came up to see Kaedra and me and hung out with us for awhile. It was really nice to see them and catch up

Here is a picture of Tamara and her other daughter, Katarina, when they came to visit Kaedra in the hospital when she was about 5 months old.



Thank you for your prayers. They really got us through a rough patch that we didn't even necessarily know about. God is so good.

Do not worry about your mood girlfriend...you are very strong and I feel a great deal of respect for you. I would be a basketcase. God be with you and your angel.

I found you through NeeCee's blog. I read Kaedra's story and your faith is HUGE! Hang on to that! Praise and Worship...sing praises to Him. My son seizured 100 times a day for 12 years and I used the same scriptures you quoted from Prayers That Avail Much. The Word is powerful!!! My son was healed of his seizures. I agree with you that your daughter is healed by His Stripes!

Oh Wow. I'm so glad you had a friend visit. I know what friends have meant during Mickey's surgery and now recovering.
