Prayer Updates! Thanks For The Prayers For Kalea & Our Sweet Little CJK

Several of you have emailed
me asking about our little CJK and
the baby (Kalea) you prayed for.
Here is an update.

A few weeks ago, 
asked for prayers for sweet little
Baby Kalea.
Her prayer request was here.
 I also posted about this sweet baby
and the outpouring of prayers was phenomenal.
After a few scary weeks and 
an unsure prognosis
this sweet little girl 
They are still not sure why she was so sick...
and her parents are scared and a bit nervous.
Please pray for peace of mind for them.

Our own little CJK?
Well, he is doing really GREAT
thanks to two wonderful bloggers
that put a thought into words
and called our attention to
Kawasaki Disease!
You can read the original
post about his health here and here.
He has a bit of stiffness in his joints yet
but his overall health is good .
He will stay on baby aspirin for a few months
to prevent blood clots.
(One of the big side effects of  Kawasaki)
Here he is at Christmas
trying out his cousin's new bike.
Just look at those chubby little cheeks!

Speaking of chubby-

When I told SweetCheeks I was getting 
She informed me that only 
Everyone else is just FAT.

And there you have it, folks..
The voice of authority!
Have a great Sunday!

Miles of smiles from this post, Diana. Such blessings for those two little ones. And Sweet Cheeks is right (brutally right!) - a motivational speaker (?) on top of it all! Off to the treadmill for chubby,er.....fat me! Stay warm during the arctic blast! Jane

Boopnut said...

So glad to hear about Kaela and love those chubby cheeks on CJK! As for you, maybe you are just a little fluffy, not fat!

Vee said...

That was very good news about Kalea and I am also happy to know that your grandson is doing so much better. Interesting that baby aspirin is "the treatment" when we worry so much about giving it to children. Just goes to show that there is an application for everything. I wonder if Kawasaki disease spiked about the same time that baby aspirin was no longer recommendend.

And as for Miss Manners there...LOL! Well now, she does tell it like it is. Wonder what she'd say about being "fluffy."

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

so glad those little ones are doing well! And SweetCheeks, well she just calls it like she sees it!

Maria Elena said...

So happy to hear both babies are doing well! So precious! And Miss SweetCheeks, well, she knows what she is talking about. LOL

Sylvia said...

Good news,thanks for the upadates.
LOL out of the mouths of babes, that sweetcheeks is so cute!

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

Good news!!! Looking forward to hearing what else Sweet Cheeks will have to say in 2014!

Pat said...

So glad to know both sweet, little ones are doing so well. Special Christmas presents,. And Sweet Cheeks comment reminds me of Art Linkletter and his show Kids Say the Darnedest Things. Have a wonderful day!

Tessa~ Here there be musing said...

Wonderful reports on the sick little ones...

Now then, please inform Sweet Cheeks that she is quite right, about only babies being chubby.


"Ladies Of A Certain Age" (Nanas, Aunts, Grammies, etc.) can be, and often are.....CUDDLY. And can anyone envision wanting to "cuddle" a stick-person? Hu? Hu? Hu?

Kelly said...

I'm really glad that Sweet Cheeks cleared that up for you! LOL! Glad to hear that those children are doing better now.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Well, she set you straight! LOL! She's what my grandmother used to call me ~ a "pip". "You're a pip!" she would always tell me. So glad to hear these precious little ones are feeling better. I thought of you yesterday when I was at Hobby Lobby. They had little pillows that said "My Hero" on them.

So happy to hear about little Kalea -- she is so precious! Also wonderful news about your little CJK. Looks like Santa forgot to get him a tryke!

Patty Patterson said...

I'm glad to hear that those two little ones are doing well, and that Sweet Cheeks tells it like it is. LOL I love that about her. We don't have to wonder what she really means when she says something. I wish the rest of the world were as simple and direct.

Perfectly Printed said...

Thanks for sharing such great news!! Sweet cheeks....from the mouths of babes!

RURAL said...

Sweet cheeks that was

I'm so glad that there is good news about the two little ones. Keeping them in my prayers.



Oh honey, I am thrilled the cute Little baby is home now...God is good!!! Sweet Cheeks is too much; she reminds me of my 6 yr. old Cayetana, who's so funny that way too! I learned soon enough I shoudn't ask kids any questions, like, do I look fat? Cayetana also said, yes, but just a Little with her tiny fingers and when I lost 20 lbs. she also said I lost just a Little...geezzz!!! LOL!

G Dazeez said...

Oh so happy to hear this good news, those little smiles are just adorable. Looking at them I feel so blessed to know that healing blessings are still abound and prayers are answered. I prefer to think of myself as round, rounder than I should be! Have a great day!

Lucille said...

Poor Nana! SweetCheeks is always so brutally honest but she does make us laugh with her antics! Children will be children! I'm just so happy that your grandson recovered and also the other baby. I will send up a prayer for them both!

Katie Isabella said...

Oh, I have to say firstly that SweetCheeks is so completely adorable and gorgeous that she is able to say these maxims and who could ever object even an eensie bit?

And Baby Kalea looks like a zillion dollars and that smile is a Gerber Baby smile!!!...and ready to blossom! Thank heavens someone put it together then about Kawasaki Disease. Now, he is ready to go out and win the world over, God love and Bless him and baby Lelea.


Debby said...

Such good news about these adorable babies being better. Prayers have great power, don't they. What a blessing that those bloggers happened to find out the reason your baby was so sick. Sweet Cheeks is so cute. Wonder how her little mind knows just what to say. I would be in stitches around here.

Thank you to all of you amazing lovely woman who prayed for Kalea!
There are keeping a close watch on her liver. But I still believing God for complete healing!
And I thank God we have so many willing to pray for us and for our wee little ones.
Go Packers!
To cold for me to get out for Church today.
Blessings, Roxy

Pam Kessler said...

SweetCheeks is just telling it like it is :) We can meet at the gym and work out together though. I figure Detroit's probably half way between us. Enjoy your football game today. I'll root for Green Bay since my Browns didn't make it into the playoffs (again).

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

That SC is something else. I always chuckle when ever she makes a statement. Out of mouths of babs --
I have been praying for both of those sweet babies and it looks like God has answered our prayers.
I am on blood thinners as I just had a blood clot in my left thigh. Caught it in time as they can be really scary.
Take care of yourself and stay WARM

Great reports on these precious babies! Still praying for them. That Sweet Cheeks is a mess! I say I'm fluffy. I guess she would call me on that one too! As we say in the south, "bless her heart!"

Donna said...

That is incredible news, Diana! And so funny about SC, she sure speaks her mind!!

Tete said...

Great news on both babies. That SC is such a goofball. Hope she didn't go to the game!

Debbie said...

Out of the mouths of babes...unfortunately.
I am happy your sweet little boy is doing so well, Diana.
I haven't been blogging much I am not up on what's been going on in blogland.
Hope all is well at your place.
I'm sure the snow you have been getting is the same stuff that makes it's way over to us. Crazy, wild winter, huh?!
Stay warm over on your side of the lake.
Love you.
