MENDing






Kaidyn has been doing so good. She is growing longer by the day. She gets more alert as the days go by. She is rolling over now! She rolled over on the couch. She is trying to sit up and even stand up! She is moving right along. I think she will be the smallest crawling baby. ECI came by mostly to fill out paper work. We will meet with a physical therapist at the end of the month to do an assessment and determine if she needs services right now. So we will see what they say.

This week I went to my first MEND (Mommies Enduring Neonatal Death) meeting. I think its going to be a good group for me to be in. Somewhere I can talk about Kaiya with moms who understand what its like to lose a child. The only place where I'll be Kaiya's mommy. It was wonderful to meet these strong women.

Update on Maya:

Please pray for her. They just found out that because of her rickets she has 9 fractures throughout her body. They are comprising a regimen for to strengthen her bones but she is in pain now. So continue to pray for this precious baby.

  1. Wow, she is getting so big. I saw grandma Mary the other day and it was good to see her beam when I asked her how Kaidyn was doing. I'm so thrilled to hear you're finally home.

  2. OH what a sweetheart! She just gets cuter all the time!
    I'm so glad you've got a group like MEND to go to. You're going through so much with Kaidyn that you haven't had time to grieve. Feelings can be pushed down and you think they're buried but sooner or later they will come out! Better to deal with them now!

    Psalm 31:1-3 In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness. Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me. For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.

    Isaiah 43:1-3a But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour...

    I Peter 1:18-19 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot

    Psalm 31:5-8: Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O LORD God of truth...but I trust in the LORD. I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities; And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast set my feet in a large room.

    Psalm 31:9-10, 14-15a Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly. For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed...But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God. My times are in thy hand:

    Psalm 31:19-21 Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men! Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence...thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion...Blessed be the LORD: for he hath shewed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city.

    Psalm 34:1-4 I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together. I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

    Psalm 34:5-8 They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed. This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

    Psalm 34:15, 17-18: The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

    1 Peter 1:3-5 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
