Cedie Lynn Mock's Blog

Cedie Lynn was born on 6/16/05 in Memphis, TN. She arrived 6 wks early. Cedie spent the first 11 & 1/2 months in the hospital. Although she endured many surgeries and spent 2/3 of her life in hospitals, she was a very happy, beautiful little girl who was full of love and who was loved by everyone who met her in person and online. She now watches over all of us as our own little angel.

Good weekend 4/22 & 4/23

Cedie's dad (Chris), brother (Dylan), and I went to see her at 9am this morning. We had Chris' two cousins-Forrest and Jimmy- and their two girlfriends with us. They are from Florida and we were all heading to Hot Springs for Chris' grandfather's memorial service. When we walked in, Cedie had just gotten through with her bath. The nurse assistant said that Cedie had so much fun in her bath. She was smiling from ear to ear and splashing in the tub! (Cedie used to HATE baths!!!) When she saw us all coming into her room she was so excited. She was smiling big and moving her head from side to side! It was so cute. Her daddy and I each held her up for all to see and you could tell she was loving it. I have never seen her so interactive with people like that!
Cedie's Nana came and sat with her this afternoon. They rocked, played with toys, and read books for a few hours. Both enjoyed this time thoroughly.
Cedie did her 12 hr CPAP trial with no problems today!
She had a restful night. Her night nurse said that Cedie has a new trick- she holds her legs up while you are changing her diaper! Such a big girl!

Cedie had a good day today as well. She has learned how to take her socks off her feet with her hands (not an easy feat with all those tubes and wires in the way). When I came to see her, she was excited to see me. We had a really good visit and played a lot. I did her trach care and she got mad but as soon as I picked her up she was happy again (she used to take a lot longer to recover from getting upset).
She did another 12 hr CPAP trial today and she did very well. Her CO2 was good before and after the trial.
Tonight her nurse noticed a new milestone. Cedie threw a fit when she was woken up by the respiratory therapist because it was time for her two treatments and chest pt's. Her nurse (one of our fav's who loves Cedie!) said that this fit was different because she did not sweat, drop sats, or clamp up. She didn't even get clammy. The nurse said she gave her the pacifier and she calmed right back down. She "handled it like a -normal-big girl". She is growing up!
After Cedie finished letting the RT know how displeased she was at her for waking her up, she went right back to sleep and slept good the rest of the night.

    I don't know if I told you but,when you called and I put you on speaker phone - Cedie's eyes got so big and she got real still. After we hung up, she smiled at me. I think the smile was for you (but I'll take credit for it!). Love Mom (Nana)
