I wanted to do this just to help me through the day of remembering my babies. I have had a rough couple of nights and just needed to talk about them and feel a lil close to their lives again. I know for most of you it's useless knowledge, but it's something to help me out today. I know there are plenty more things that I could write on here and may come back and add them at another time as I remember them.
Did you know that Brayden and Kenadi were born on May 9, 2007 at 12:33 and 12:34 am? Brayden was older by a minute.
Did you know that I was scheduled a week later for a c-section but my water broke and sent me to the hospital on May 8?
Did you know I came home the day before my first mother's day? :)
Did you know that when they were 5 days old we drove an hour away to welcome their cousin in to this world?
Did you know that when I was 19 weeks or so pregnant with them, we learned that Kenadi had hydronephrosis?
Did you know when they were a week old we took them to Nemours Children's Clinic in Pensacola for Kenadi to see a neprhologist?
Did you know when we took them to their 2 week check-up, we noticed a strange "bruise" on the right side of Kenadi's neck that turned out to be a hemangioma?
Did you know that when they were 8 weeks old, Brayden got really sick and we took him to the ER at midnight with a high fever and they had to run all sorts of tests on him and admitted him for 3 days with viral meningitis?
Did you know that the day after we came home from the hospital with Brayden with VM, I had to take Kenadi to the ER and spend 3 days in the hospital with her for viral meningitis?
Did you know that while she was in the hospital with VM, they stuck her 27 times? (had a VERY hard time getting IV started, got it started and next day it shifted so they ended up just giving her shots of the anti-biotic)
Did you know that Kenadi had a major kidney surgery when she was 13 weeks old to repair her "kinked" ureter tube?
Did you know that Brayden had night terrors for about 2 months in a row when he was a baby that completely broke our hearts?
Did you know that we had their Baby Dedication in September of 2007?
Did you know that we left them for the first time overnight in September for us to celebrate our anniversary (that is in July) at the beach for the weekend?
Did you know that for their first halloween they were both dogs? Kenadi was a pink poodle and Brayden was a brown puppy.
Did you know that they went to daycare from 8 weeks to 4 months old?
Did you know that Gregg's grandparents kept Brayden and Kenadi from the time they were 4 months old?
Did you know that Kenadi had tubes put in her ears the week after she turned 6 months old?
Did you know that we took them to the beach for the very first time in November of 2007?
Did you know that Kenadi loved eating the sand?
Did you know that they took their very first bath together when we got in from the beach and LOVED it?
Did you know that they had a wonderful first christmas and were much more interested in the bows and paper than what was inside?
Did you know that Brayden started walking when he was about 10 months old?
Did you know Kenadi waited until around her first birthday?
Did you know they had a great first birthday party?
Did you know it was "beach ball" themed and they had all sorts of water toys and balloons?
Did you know Kenadi was not feeling very well on her first birthday and I got real worried about her so we took her to the ER about 10 that night and as soon as we got in the room she started seizing in my arms?
Did you know I almost had a heart attack that night and was scared to death that I was losing my child?
Did you know her temperature got up to 105 while she was seizing?
Did you know they took us to Pensacola and I got to ride in the ambulance with her that night?
Did you know that Kenadi had the seizure due to her high fever?
Did you know I spent my second mothers day at Sacred Heart Hospital with my daughter?
