5/5/09 - A Family Again

Aimee and I almost forgot what it felt like to have a smile on our faces until Allyson and Brandon were able to spend some time with Kayleigh today after waiting for so long. August was the last time they saw her due to RSV season(horrible lung disease) prevented children in the NICU.

The hospital allowed Kayleigh to be moved to a sleep-in room where we could lounge around with her on a bed and allow the kids to hold her and love on her. It was a magical moment and it felt so good to be a family again. It is very sad to say, but this was only our second chance to have a family photo taken together.

I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as we enjoyed living them.

God Bless,

I know this day was perhaps a little bitter/sweet but you have an amazing attitude!!!!!! I do hope you will receive your gift from God and will get to bring Kayleigh home where she belongs, but if not, you will always have today - no one can take that away for you.

Adam first of all the pictures are great. I went to church for the first time in probably fifteen years Sunday, for Kayleigh. I carried a picture of her with me in my bible, and I had tears in my eyes to whole time I was there. I have prayed more than ever this past week. Kayleigh has showed me how good our god is. I also wanted to ask if you saw the post on your facebook from the lady that said they were told the same thing about her daughter as well and her daughter is 7 now. I read her blog and it gave me so much hope. I'm thinking about you guys every second and praying every half a second. Glad the kids got to hold there sweet miracle sister. Love yall bunches.

PS I hope Kayleigh got her package from me.

Your post meant so much to me tonight. I wait for the updates in my blog dashboard and was so happy to see this today. I also see this incredible peace in Kayleigh's eyes in the pictures of her and her siblings. The look is so beautiful, she knows that they love her. She knows that they are there. She feels their warmth and can hear them talking with her. Thank you for reminding me of the simple and most important joys of life. Enjoy this evening with the family, I am so happy the doctors have given you all a room to be together.

Stephanie Scales said...

I am a new reader to your blog but after reading it i sent it out on my face book and now even more are praying..several times thoughout the last few days i would stop and think of your precious daughter..and all i can think is to pray the words " heal , heal heal" I have probably said it a hundred times i the past few days...thinking of Kayleigh, you and your family. I sit here tonight, looking at your family pics, praying for many more to come...I know the doctors out look is bleak, but do not loose faith in the healing powers of our god.

But he was wounded for our transgressions he was bruised
for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him;
and with his stripes we are healed.
Isaiah 53:5

Lacy's Family said...

Kayleigh's body may not have known her family was with her today but I'm sure her spirit was dancing with joy at being a whole family again. I pray for many more days like this for your whole family. Kayleigh weighs heavily on my mind each day and when I am complaining about something one of my children has done, I remember how lucky I am to have them to make me crazy. Just one of the many lessons of gratitude I have learned from your journey. Such a beautiful family and a perfect little daughter of God.

KNS said...

Wordless, but only tears. God bless you all.
We all love Kayleigh. She is so beautiful. Just put a candle for her. I have been putting a candle everyday night praying for her and your family for the past 2 days- that is from when I came across this story and blog.

Pattybee said...

I am so happy that you all could spend this time together, and it is wonderful to see smiles on your faces. You can see the love and pride in Brandon and Allyson's eyes while holding and interacting with Kayleigh. What a blessing that the hospital provided you with a room to spend private, quiet time as a family. Kayleigh and your family are in my prayers.

I have heard that "a picture is worth a thousand words". These pictures are worth millions of words. These are memories that will forever be engraved upon your hearts. Kayleigh does look like a little baby doll, but one look at the faces of all of you as you look at Kayleigh, shows she isn't a doll, but one of God's special creations.

Prayers and my heart of for all of you, especially for Kayleigh. Even though my brain is saying I should listen to the doctors, my heart is saying to listen only to God.

Such photos to cherish for a lifetime. Kayleigh looks like her big sister

His Grace said...

Your older kids look so happy to finally hold their baby sister in their arms. I am only so sorry that they had to wait out the RSV season , and therefore miss their baby sister when she was so active and alert prior to her "accident" during surgery.
Prayers continue for your beautiful family.
Why is Kayleigh's skin on her face so shiny and tight? Is that related to her condition? How is her brain swelling doing? Hope it is less.

I think your family should contact TLC and get a reality show. I see that Mckmama wants one for her family, but Your family is just beautiful INSIDE and OUT! I for one, would love to watch! Write to them!

Keep taking lots of beautiful family photos! They are priceless!

And, please if you have not already, contact an attorney. This is such a tragedy what happened to this precious baby girl in surgery!

I find it hard to fit what I am feeling into this little comment box. These photos are incredibly uplifting, yet heart-wrenching at the same time. Thank you so much for posting them--they're a gift to all of us. Though I've cried so many tears (of joy and agony) while reading your blog, what you are going through is beyond what I can really imagine (I have an 8-month-old girl myself). Yet you continue to handle it all with such strength and gratitude. It inspires and humbles me. I feel such love for Kayleigh and such gratitude to you. Thank you for sharing her with us through this blog! I'm so glad you are savoring every moment of your time together. It's such a beautiful sight. Big hugs to all of you.
