Our visit today was extra special and Kayleigh seemed to be in high spirits. After watching her sleep the whole visit yesterday, it was great to see her awake and batting at her play toys. Yes! She was grabbing at the toys hanging from her "clothes line" that streams across her bed. She has a rattle she especially loves where she will swipe at it or grab and try to shove in her mouth. It was beyond cute to watch her interact with it and such a blessing to prove even a bigger point that she sees her toys clear enough to locate with her hands.
Some of the other tests have come back and it seems they want to chalk all this drama up to be a cold that she came down with. Honestly, with all the pollen going around and Charlotte, NC being a hotbed for dust and allergens, I wouldn't doubt it if the issues were caused by a several allergy attack. It seems that several nurses, family members and even myself had intense
Good news is the doctors felt Kayleigh was in a better position to start her feeds up, but they will be starting slow and build up from there. The news is, we will be waiting until next week to do any type of surgeries in case this cold/allergy issue surfaces again.
The great news is she is showing quick signs of improvement and not heading in a wrong direction anymore. I am not going to jinx it anymore because it has not been working for me, so I am going to just say it this way; If Kayleigh has surgery sometime this year and can come home before I wind up where she is of old age, I will be more excited than a child on Christmas morning.
Thank you all for the prayers and let's keep them flowing stronger than ever.
This has been on very crazy week for the Freeman family and we are happy to share our sixth "Thoughtful Thursday" event with you. We will be doing this every week and we would love for everyone to join in and do something nice for someone out there.
Okay, here is how our "Thoughtful Thursday" works.
You all are going to go out in to this crazy world and do something EXTRA nice for someone else. You can do something nice for someone you love, someone you don't love, or someone you you have never had the chance to love and come back here to share about it each and every Thursday.
God has shown Himself through Kayleigh and we need to glorify Him in all that we do. We need to touch other people with our kindness and spread the love of God with Kayleigh's story to everyone we possibly can. When you deliver your good deed to someone, let them know that they were touched by Kayleigh and share her website with them, so they too can join in on Kayleigh's journey and our "Thoughtful Thursdays" to glorify God.
This week, I want to spotlight Kerren all the way from South Africa. Her Rambling of My Life blog is great and she is doing a special Thoughtful Thursday for Brandon and Allyson. Since South Africa is such a distant location from where we are, Kerren is putting together a care-package full of artifacts about her country and city for Brandon and Allyson to learn/educate them more about where some of Kayleigh's blog followers come from. I thought it was a very sweet idea and such a kind gesture that will share just how special Brandon and Allyson are to so many too. Click Here to see her blog and read her post.
NOW...You you have got to think outside the box and come back and share it with us and the world. Be creative and make your stories stand out. You never know, your story may be in the spotlight for ALL to see.
