My friend Renee and her daughter Kennedy were here for a few days to see our Philly doctors. Renee's daughter Kennedy has to have surgery on her spine and skull. She has something called AOI.
I was fortunate enough to be able to help them out by being their driver and spending the day keeping them company. I was blessed to get to spend some time with Renee and Kennedy....those 2 are truly amazing human beings.

Renee is amazing because she does ALL this stuff for Kennedy and her family without flinching. She does it and is so calm. She can spurt out whatever the name of the drug it was that the doctor gave to her daughter in 2005. She can carry her daughter from stretcher to chair while juggling the cell phone to find out if her husband is alright after she got an email that he fell out of a helicopter while in Afghanistan.

Kennedy is a doll. She has had a list of medical issues a mile long.....seriously.
She is SOOOO SUPER SMART. No odds will ever hold her back. Her vocabulary spoken and with sign is AMAZING. She NEVER complains...I am sure when the nurses walk out of a room after putting in an IV they thank heaven that their patient was sooooo "patient"...I have never seen a child so compliant and well behaved, Ms. Kennedy put my kids to shame these past few days! WAITING requires patients, Ms. Kennedy does a lot of waiting....I only had to do it for 2 days with them. God bless their souls!

I now anoint Ms. Kennedy and Ms. Renee "Saints of Patience"

Please keep her in your daily prayers. She will be back here in Philly soon for surgery.

I am so grateful that you were able to hook her up with your uncle and that Miss Kenn will be in good hands for her surgery. I so want our girls to meet one day too!

How fun that you got to hang out (although too bad it wasn't under better circumstances!)

Awww thanks! Though I have to admit I only stay patient because Kennedy does. If she started freaking out I probably would too! haha
Thanks again for EVERYTHING!!! I seriously would have cried if I had to drive in Philly! haha
We'll have to swap pics soon... I haven't even uploaded mine yet!
