Drake has been working hard with his therapies showing everyone how amazing he is with his gait trainer! I really think his vision is improving, too! We celebrated Brian's birthday and we actually surprised him with a present! Anyone who knows Brian knows that is almost an impossible feet! Kennedy was so cute! As soon as I told her it was daddy's birthday, she went straight for her chair to help her reach the kitchen drawer. I asked her what she was doing & she told me she was getting a candle for daddy. Then she asked me to "put fire on it." I told her we would have to wait for daddy to get home from work first. She also helped him blow out his candle, too!
Since Mimi has barely been to her home lately, Poppy came to spend the weekend with us! Kennedy was over the moon excited to see her Poppy! She wanted to show him everything, and she wanted to play every game and toy imaginable! I love how excited she gets when she sees her grandparents! It makes my heart smile!
Speaking of hearts...Poppy gave us quite a scare today! My sister told me yesterday afternoon that Poppy was not feeling right and would be having an EKG run after work. Before we even had results, Brian and I sent Mimi home to be with Poppy. His EKG showed a blockage, and Poppy was supposed to see a Cardiologist today. However, this morning while getting ready for work, he told Mimi that he needed her to take him to the hospital. He called work to let them know he wouldn't be coming in, and he called the ER to let them know his symptoms and that they were on their way. They quickly decided to care-flight him from Presby Allen to Presby Plano. As soon as he arrived at Presby Plano they immediately did a procedure to place a stint. His artery that was blocked due to a clot is known as a "widow maker" because it happens so quickly! I am beyond thankful for the chain of events that took place allowing this life threatening problem to be resolved! My daddy certainly had a guardian angel looking out for him!
Even though the past week has not been ideal, we are thankful for all of the good that has taken place. Thankful Poppy got to the hospital in time and the doctors were able to repair his heart, thankful my labor was delayed giving Hayes more time for his lungs to mature, and thankful both Drake and Kennedy have remained healthy!
