Evaluations and such

This week Kaidyn finally had her Cerebral Palsy evaluations. She saw neurology, orthopedics and physical medicine and rehab and they all agree that Kaidyn does have a mild form of cerebral palsy, periventricular leukomalacia (PVL) to be exact. They are confident that she will walk and have very little difficulty with day to day activities. They noted her muscle tightening and said her hips are not normally placed. All this will be a constant battle and right now we are unsure how it will play out. They plan is to just watch and see how it affects her as she grows. Therapy will continue as is and we will explore other treatments and therapies as needed.

Kaidyn also had a pulmonology appointment and she is doing great. Her pulm. doctor does want her to use an inhaler twice a day to help with her lungs. They believe she has asthma but she is too young to officially diagnose. So with her inhaler with got a spacer and a new friend named Spinner (her duck mask). The inhaler and spacer are used together since of course she can't use an inhaler properly.

Please continue to pray for Kaidyn as she continues to overcome obstacles that come her way. I will continue to update on Kaidyn's progress so please continue to check the site. Love you all and thank you for praying and following Kaidyn's story.

    Praying hard in Seattle!
    Psalms 46:1-5 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.

    Psalms 94:17-19, 22 Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up. In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul...But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge.

  6. Know that you're in my thoughts and prayers!
    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...
