It's all gone!!

Pediatric Specialists of Alabama pulled into and out of my driveway yesterday for what I pray is the last time EVER! The oxygen tanks, concentrator, pulse oximeter, and all the various medical supplies are gone!! I feel like the chains have been lifted! Kathryn truly knows no limitations now and I am so proud for her.

On other news, we also had a checkup on Monday with her opthamologist, Dr. Metz. He said that her eyes have not changed in the past 6 months which is a huge blessing and another prayer that has been answered. She has a tiny bit of nearsightedness, but nothing that would require glasses. He said that even if she was 5, the amount of her nearsightedness is so small that it wouldn't require glasses! It may progress over time, but we thank God for the current blessings we are receiving! Because she is doing so well, we do not have to go back for a year! (Enter the theme music, "another one bites the dust", that we use to describe how quickly Kathryn knocks out doctors and medical equipment!)

A few last ramblings: Kat is doing very well sleeping in her room now. Greg and I love having our room back for the first time since July of 2007 - I know, it's been a long time!! Maddie's papers came in the mail yesterday for Kindergarten registration. I can't believe it's coming so soon! Just a few months away and my baby is growing up to be in big school. We are leaving today for our long weekend beach trip!!! Yea for Destin Florida!

And last but most certainly not least, please keep my brother and sister in law, Beau and Brittany, and their baby Gaines in your prayers. She is now 29 weeks on bedrest at GWUH, but this morning started having contractions. Please pray for more tummy time for little Gaines.

Faithfully, Kelly

I am so happy to hear there are zero wires and oxygen equipment everywhere!
