The child cracks me up! She had a pee-pee accident, so stripped down to get new clothes on. She started getting dressed again. The first thing that goes on if you're a Kendi? The headband, of course!
Praise God, we are all back under one roof! Kendi was released from the hospital earlier this evening. Eric said he "strong-armed" them into letting her go. ;-) We did have a good arguement since we can keep her fed and hydrated through the g-tube if need be. We don't have labs back for Malaria, mono, or tick illnesses, but they started her on the med for tick illnesses and she hasn't had a fever since. So we're kind of thinking it was a tick thing, but we won't know for sure until the other labs are back. It's SO good to see her feeling better! We really appreciate the prayers you've said for us (especially Kendi!) the last few days.
As for the other crud going on, I know it will get better bit by bit. I've just got to tackle one thing at a time. The Lord has blessed us with so much. I want to focus on the joys in my life, and give the hard stuff less attention.
About Bright's stuff....I've received a few private emails (which I appreciate). I'm not sure how much to post about his behaviors, but wanted to clarify that we're not talking about naughty kid behaviors. They are more like autistic/sensory-ish behaviors (grunting, spinning, crashing, in his own world, walking away, etc.). What doesn't make sense to me about that is that they are coming on in full force now--when he's going on 5 years old. Why didn't we see those behaviors when he was 2 or 3? It's all outside of my parenting experience. Of that much I am sure. I learned a lot about sensory issues with Taevy, but there were always signs of her issues, even when she was a 6 month old baby. Hmm.... Bright is a puzzle. But I love him. Tonight I said, "Bright, why are you acting so whacko right now?" (just playing around with him). He said, "I don't know, but I know God loves me." That kid! More true words were never spoken!
