June 6th came and we went to the hospital for my scheduled C-section. The jovial family awaited with Pink Camo Shirts ready to celebrate the next little miracle!! We had no idea how miraculous she would turn out to be. Kayelyn Olivia Brewer came into this world a sick little girl. Born with a lack of surfactant in her lungs, she blew two holes on her right lung and was promptly life-flighted downtown were she stayed for nearly two months. For weeks on end we sat by her bed side praying and hoping- begging God to let us keep her. She fought hard and so did we and she made a full recovery in record time—the doctors were even shocked at how quickly she came around.
After she was released, mommy was promptly thrown in the hospital for gall bladder removal and a liver procedure. I was released and came home to my wonderful husband, who managed the entire household better than I could have on a regular basis.
In August, I launched my web-business-
In November I lost my job of going on 3 years. It was a bitter separation, but never fear! When one door closes another one opens!! I found a new job working for the Memorial Hermann hospital system Ironically in the same hospital Kayelyn was born, in the nursery as an infant photographer … I am aiming to pursue new goals as well, but thats a whole other blog :)
Briley-Bear is thriving! She is growing so quickly and is SO smart! She talks and talks and has the vocabulary of a 10 year old… She is such a joy to have, we are so blessed.
Our little Olive is doing so wonderful! I worry constantly about her, but she gets bigger and stronger every day!!! She has two teeth and says “Ma Ma Ma Ma” and “Da Da Da DA”….
