Bracelets for Kaylee
Last week Kaylee Smith suffered a freak accident that put her in Children’s Hospital in a drug-induced coma. She was hit in the head with a golf ball, which caused a skull fracture and resulted in both internal bleeding and swelling that have caused further complications. Although she has had ups and downs over the past few days, and despite not knowing the full extent of possible damage to her brain (the speech part in particular), she has been responsive and is slowly improving, having already undergone two surgeries successfully.
Kaylee’s folks are good friends with my cousin Angue and her husband, Joe. Their daughter, Rose, and Kaylee have spent untold amounts of time together – as ten-year-old girls like to do, of course. *smile*
Angue and Joe, along with their kids, decided to make hairbows to sell at the local football games in order to help Kaylee’s family in this time of need. Several people have offered to help make hairbows, including a lady several states away who they didn’t even know before this! It’s so amazing to see how much support and love and prayer is being shared throughout the community and beyond.
Since I’m not much of a hairbow maker, though, I offered to make bracelets instead, which I will have to mail back home to Angue and Joe. I know every little bit helps and we all hope to see Kaylee make a full recovery soon.
