An Update on Kahri

This is Brandi. I just got off the phone with Kahri and she asked me to update her blog.

She is still in KC with the kids. Kaedra has a high fever and the doctors want to be sure it isn't an infection around her pic line. They took some blood and have to wait for the cultures to grow and all that "fun" stuff, for answers. We are all under the belief that Kaedy has a cold, just like her little brother Ethan seems to have. However the doctors want more than that.

Best case scenario, they will be in KC for about 24 hours but they were told not to count on that. It looks like it may be another 48 hours or so. The Ronald McDonald house was full but they were able to find a motel room, although it is not local to the hospital and they will need to pick up some supplies on the way there. The extended stay was not expected.

They appreciate all who have joined them in prayer. We pray that tomorrow, the doctors will walk into the hospital room to find that Kaedra has been healed and they can all go home. We also pray that in the meantime, everything will go smoothly. That all of the kids will be able to cope with the changes and limits on what they can do right now, as well as the staff to be understanding and loving towards their presence in the room. We ask for Kaedra's comfort during these medical procedures as well as Kahri's peace of mind while she is trying to juggle so much right now. We also ask for prayer for Michael as he holds down the "fort" even though his heart and mind are in KC with his family. What a stressful time for them all. We also want to rejoice and thank the Lord for Kaedra, for all that He has done so far, all He is doing right now, and all He is going to do. He is soooo Good!!!

I'm still praying and believing for a complete healing and that you will all be able to come home soon.

I just read that you had to take Emily with you because lack of a sitter. Any time you need someone to watch your kiddos, just call. I would be honored to help out in that way.
