Long Time No Post

Sorry, I can't believe its been almost a week since I last posted. Actually I can believe it since it seems lately I don't even have time to sit down. Kenzie's GI bug seems to come and go. We went to her gastro and he told us it can take Kenzie weeks to recover from a simple stomach virus. It is definitely getting better but we still have bouts here and there. Her meals are hit and miss. She seems to refuse her first bite with me 90% of the time whereas never with Jordan. Her mood is generally good but the vomiting incidents are pretty high. We have opened Kenzie up to all of the foods she was getting before she got sick at KKI and she is doing well with the variety. I have also started to puree some foods myself as Earths Best doesn't make regular squash and green beans.

This weekend we went to the Britney Spears concert. Kenzie had a meal during it and it went really well! Kenzie LOVED the concert! She was bopping her head the whole time and stayed up till the end. For those who have been following... Kenzie is used to listening to Britney during her meals. Its part of her protocol because awhile back Jordan and i noticed that she danced anytime it came on in the car. As a joke the Behavioral Psychologist listened to us and put it on during her meal and from meal 1, Kenzie responded. One of jordans attendings had tickets in a box for the concert and let us take Kenzie. It was great!!!

I still have yet to put up the pictures from our last day at KKI but I will (hopefully). I just figured the video of Kenzie bopping to the beat was way more fun. We love being home again and are getting back into the swing of things. Last night I had the greatest surprise... my friends Lindsay and Carly threw me a surprise birthday/coming home party. When I spent my 30th birthday in the hospital with kenzie, we always joked how 31 would be a blowout because there was no way it could be as bad as 30. So this year when 31 was spent in a different state in another hospital, it really was no fun. Last night was so special. I really have the best friends and family ever! Thank you :-)

Lots to do before bedtime so I have to run but hope you all enjoy the videos
