Kendyl Grace

A couple of weeks ago, I reported that little Kendyl Grace would be coming home from the hospital within a day or two. Well, things didn't go as expected. One little thing and another came up...a slight weight loss, a possible bout with jaundice (which didn't materialize), and a few other little issues. The doctors wanted to keep her a bit longer to make sure she wasn't going to have some major incident when she got home, which might endanger her already fragile health. We were beginning to wonder what might come next. But............

The evening before Thanksgiving, Amber and Joe Jr., grandmother Lori, and grandfather Joe walked into Aunt Linda's and Uncle Mike's house with the gift we had all been waiting for.....the homecoming of baby Kendyl Grace (after 70 days in the hospital). We all gave out a shout of joy and ran toward them, getting our cameras out, taking pictures, and begging to hold her. Needless to say, one or another were holding her all evening and she didn't mind; she seemed to enjoy every minute of it.

Looking at Kendyl, you would never know she had been premature and deathly ill at birth. What a SPECIAL THANKSGIVING OUR FAMILY HAD!!!!!

Thanks goes to her wonderful doctors, to all of you for your prayers, and to our Lord Jesus Christ who carried her the entire way in His arms. What a blessing.
