Leg Braces and Such....


We found out that Kaidyn will have to get leg braces to help with her foot position. The ECI physical therapist said that its best to correct now and hopefully she won't need them long term. The issue is that when we stand her up she stands on her toes and won't put her feet flat. Her left will go down with pressure but her right foot is a little more difficult. She has high muscle tone in her legs so the braces will help with that. I mean she has calf muscles already!!! She gets fitted for her braces later this month.


Yesterday (Monday) Kaidyn had an eye appointment in Temple to check and make sure her retinas and all that looked good. Came out with a good report! Eyes are straight and tracking well! She is near-sided and will need glasses in the future but nothing to worry about for now. Back in a year for another check!


Today I found out that Kaidyn now has an ear infection. Two weeks ago when I took her to the doctor when I thought she had an ear infection she didn't it was viral. Today I took her just because she was still congested and having a hard time breathing (no fever or any other signs) and now she has an ear infection. Go figure! So we are on antibiotics for the next 10 days. This cold/flu season is not starting how I wanted. Luckily she was approved for the Synagis shot (to protect against RSV) so that puts my mind at ease... alittle.

  1. Andrew's been in braces since he was about 15 months and it has made a really big difference for him. The only tough part is finding shoes that fit! Try Payless, they seem to have the best ones. And if you can get some that velcro and still fit without being enormous it will make your life much easier. Laces take forever on top of just getting the braces on and off.

    She'll do great and you won't regret getting them!

    The thought of the Lord being our shepherd is such great comfort!
    Psalms 23:1-3 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

  3. What a blessing to know that the Lord is always with us! Praying in Seattle!
    Psalms 23:4-6 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

    Philippians 3:9-11 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

    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.

    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...

  8. Christ Himself gives us these promises. Know that I'm here praying!
    Revelation 21:5-7 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

    Lamentations 3:21-26 This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.

    Hebrews 6:17-20 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

  17. Always such comforting words...praying in Seattle!
    Romans 8:26-27 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

    2 Samuel 22:29-33 For thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness. For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall. As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him. For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God? God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect.
