Pictures & Updates

I went to visit my beautiful daughter last night like I always do. What was different last night? Well.... I think her vision is somewhat coming back. I played with bright musical toys and whereas she used to look around and kind of "try" and find them with her hands, last night she DID find them with her hands on a couple of different occasions. This could mean different things... it could mean that her "seeing" with her ears is getting better or it could be that our prayers are being answered and that she is "seeing" with her eyes- if even just a little bit- it may be happening. I pray that this is what is happening- I hope that she is actually seeing with her eyes again. I didn't have my camera with me last night, I only had my cell phone to take pictures and so, they aren't perfect but I wanted all of you to see what I was seeing. I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I do. My strong little fighter may just be coming out of this blindness :O) :O) :O) Also, where we were $1402.00 short on the house we are now just $1258.06 short after 3 donations came in through pay pal yesterday. We got $100.00 and 2 $25.00 donations yesterday- so after the pay pal fees were taken out- we are down to $1258.06. God is good and so are all of you for your wonderful prayers and greater donations. I truly love all of you for all that you have done and are doing for our family. Being that I have always been on the giving end with prayers and donations- it is hard to be on the receiving end- but I must say that when you offer unselfishly, it does come back when you most need it. Those of you who have never met us in "real life" but are giving us what you can- whether it be prayer, financial or just keeping us in your thoughts- we completely understand that you are giving what you can and it is so very much appreciated. I give you my word that all of the money coming into our family is going to save our home and any that we are able to raise over that amount will also go into saving our home as well- we will pay all monies that come to us for our house- to our house. I am hoping that we get enough to not only keep us out of foreclosure- but to make a couple of extra payments so that we are "ahead" as well. We have had 2 large donations one was $1000.00 and one $4500.00 and a lot of smaller donations of $10.00, $15.00, $20.00, $25.00, $50.00, $70.00, $100.00, $200.00 and 1 $300.00 from a girl I went to high school with. All donations are so very helpful- no matter what the amount- we are grateful. Because of your selfless acts in giving- you are going to be responsible for saving our home. Pat yourselves all on the back for all of your help to our family. We truly believe in all of you and if there is anything that I can do for you- please let me know. So, I hope you enjoy the pictures of the kiddo's in the last few days. Cody had a friend come and visit him as well. Natalie is my friend's name- we met here at the Ronald McDonald house the first time we stayed here. Natalie has a son named Caleb who has autism and some other issues and she was here for quite a while. Well, she has a daughter named AvreighFaye. Well, Cody and AvreighFaye were born just 2 days apart. Cody was born on 6/26/09 and AvreighFaye was born on 6/28/09. Cody and AvreighFaye became fast friends and though they haven't seen in other in quite some time- they picked up where they left off- they are the same height, have the same color hair and same coloring- so, people assume that they are twins when we go walking. They are too cute together.
Camryn looks so much better

I love all of you. So.
I hope you all enjoy the pictures of Camryn, Cody & AvreighFaye- they are all so cute together.


  1. This is such wonderful news!!!! I pray she is seeing with her eyes too!!

  2. Oh Kristy what wonderful news. I Pray she is seeing. I bet she is or she would not have been able to grab the toy. That must mean the pressure is down and the new shunt is working. Praise God!!! Give both kids a big hug from me. Will be praying that she gets moved out of ICU this coming week and that you finally get to hold that sweet baby girl in your arms soon.
