Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

Rejoicing and a prayer request

Oh thanks be to God for all that He has done!!!
Thank you for your
continued prayers for Rachel.
She was able to skip Icu completely and
is resting in her room. Praise the Lord!

The neurosurgeon
told us to expect a rough day tomorrow as she
will be in a lot of pain. Please join us as
we ask the Lord to minimize her pain.

We are continually
rejoicing in the Work that God has already
done and is continuing to do. Thank you
for joining us on this journey of faith.

Your family has been in my prayers and thoughts all day !!! I am so glad to hear she has come through so well..and will surely pray for God to minimize her pain. You are an amazing family. You said in one of your posts ..that Rachel asked that she wished you all would learn what you have to so all things happening to your family would pass..(my paraphrase) Sometimes it's not about what you as a family have to learn ..Sometimes he takes very strong people and uses them to touch the world. You are touching many lives through this. You are all an inspiration and living testimony in serving God ! May he bless you all more than you could concieve for your faithfullness !

Blessings ..Sara

So glad to hear that surgery went well!!! She was in my prayers, as I was praying for my brother in law as well. His surgery was also today. His went well, and they've already seen improvements in his blood pressure! Praise the Lord! I'll continue to keep her in my prayers.

Oh, Kristi, I am so glad to hear this good news!

ICU following surgery is a wonderful place, but it is a scary place for parents. That Rachel did not need to be there is such good news.

Yes, there will be pain; we will pray that the pain be minimized and that the pain medications work well. Be sure to ask for help early and often. Unless she has a PCA pump, the nurses will only be able to administer pain meds if you ask for them. One thing we learned--stay ahead of the curve on the pain. Don't wait until it becomes bad; ask for help early.

It is hard to see your baby in pain, I know. I will pray for you. Take good care of yourself even as you care for her. Here's a hug for you: {{{}}} I wish I could be there to deliver it in person.

God bless you all.
