Sweet Max

Thank you to everyone for the continued prayers, support, hugs, and love. Unfortunately, sweet Max peacefully passed away in the arms of his mom and dad yesterday.

Max was a fighter and an incredibly cute little boy. He is beyond loved and will be greatly missed.

Max Day 9

I'm headed to go see Max and the family here in a little bit. I've missed that sweet boy! I haven't talked to Kevin yet today so I'm not sure how Max is doing, but I'll update whenever I can. Which may be not until tonight. Thank you again for all the continued prayers!

10:45 update
I forgot to mention Max turned 8 weeks today! Also, the doctors said his lungs sound a wee bit better (based off an exam and not an x-ray) and his blood pressure has been stable as well.

Max- Day 8

Just talked to Kevin and he really didn't have anything to update. Said Max was still the same. they have a meeting with doctor's this afternoon, so I'm praying they get some answers and have peace with whatever the doctor's happen to tell them.

I miss him so much!

Also, Max is pretty famous! :) Thank you to everyone who has spread the word to pray for him! I love getting emails from people that I don't even know, that just want me to know that they are praying for him and the family! He's a pretty special guy and deserves all this love! So from the bottom of my heart, thank you! And I'm sure Kevin and Kelci would say the same.


10:00 UPDATE
Talked with Kevin again and Max is still hanging in there. I asked about his blood pressure and he said it is doing much better. It was dropping some, but came back up without the need of assistance. I'm going back down tomorrow to be with them. I just miss hMax to much to stay away. And more so, I want to be there for Kevin and Kelci... even if it's just for my brother to make fun of me and get a laugh out of it. That's something he enjoys! Gotta pick on the older sister! :) Thank you all for the continued prayers! God is amazing!

Max - Day 7

It's hard to believe it's been 1 week since everything happened. And as I'm typing, I realized that its even to the hour of when I found out. And well, the rest of the week seems to be a blur. The whole month of May has been a blur.

I talked with my brother this morning and Max kinda had a rough night. He's having some problems with his blood pressure and Kevin told me it got up into the 160's over something and they are now trying to help that. I forgot to ask about the pneumonia and so I'll do that when I speak with him later today. They'll be visiting with the neurologist again this evening and I'm not sure if there will be more tests, studies, etc.

Please pray for Max's blood pressure to come down and for him to become more stable. I'm also praying that there isn't any signs of pneumonia as well. And continue to pray for Kevin to have strength and courage. Love to you both!

Today has been a harder day for me personally since I can't be with them right now. I'm missing Max pretty bad right now. After spending the last 5 days with him, I'm missing our time together. And well, I'm certain he misses his favorite aunt too! I miss you sweet Max!

9:00 update
I spoke with my brother and Max is now on blood pressure meds and so his blood pressure is now within normal limits. They said the med is kind of sedating him. Other than that, he's doing the same. I'm having a hard time today no being there. I just miss him...

May 23, 2011

29 weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 29 Weeks
Size of baby: Baby Jay weighs about 2 1/2 lbs and about 15 inches. The length of a butternut squash.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 31 lbs. 2 lbs away from the weight gain I had with Lyla. We ate out a lot these past few days too.

Maternity Clothes: Mostly just pants and every once in a while a shirt.

Gender: A healthy boy with an uber cute name!

Movement: All the time. He is a mover and a groover for sure!

Sleep: Pretty good except my hips fall asleep every night.

What I miss:Margarita's, my skinny jeans, running, being skinny.

Cravings: Fruit, steak, lemonade.

Symptoms:Well the swelling has started. Which I don't remember that this early with Lyla. But I have cankles every night. They've been really bad the past few days, but I'm thinking stress has been the cause of that.

Best Moment this week: Just feeling him move around.

I'm also down to 77 days. Um, holy moly? We got our car seat this weekend and I'm already tempted to get it installed in the car. I had Lyla's installed at 32 weeks. I've also started washing clothes today. I'm feeling very unprepared and like I have so much to do. I have a lot of things I still want to make for him and have made and I haven't done anything. It doesn't help that May has flown by. If my baby wants to be his mama's favorite, I could have only 9 weeks left but I'm sure I'll go past my due date. I still need to also get an attachment for the car seat for the stroller and a few more cloth diapers and also some newborn disposables. Slowly we are checking things off!

Max - Day 6

My adorable little nephew is still hanging in there. He had a good night and still no changes on the vent settings. They are doing a few clinical tests today and waiting to visit with the neurologist sometime this afternoon. He's still moving a little, squeezing fingers, but they are unsure as to if it is just an auto reflex or him doing it. I think the week is starting to wear on everyone so please continue to pray for Kevin and Kelci. The next couples days will be hard for him. Technically, everyday is hard, but the upcoming days ahead will be just as hard, if not harder.

It's been a hard morning for myself with not being there. I've at least gotten to see him everyday so I'm struggling with that. I know Max wants his aunt! :) Lyla and I have been praying for him all morning and she's been carrying around my phone with his pictures and kissing it.

I also have another prayer request. Sean's 2nd cousin was in a serious car accident early Saturday morning, I believe. She has broken her arm and also her back. I know she is having surgery today but that's about all I really know. From what I've been told, she's been positive and upbeat given the situation. So I ask you pray for her and her family and also the doctors performing the surgery today. She will have a long road ahead of her as well.

I know I ask you to pray everyday and I thank you! Everything has been appreciated that all our friends and even people we don't know have done for us. I might not be able to respond to everyone, but please know it is appreciated. I will update later today after they visit with the neurologist! Praying for peace for Kevin, Kelci and Max!

Aunt Andrea loves and misses you Mr. Max!

{Also, I did an update late last night so if you haven't seen it, the post should be below this one if you click on the home button}

9:30 update:
The neurologist had come to visit earlier this afternoon, and after another EEG today, it was determined that he has no change in it since the last one (on Thursday). But he has been moving a little bit more, but they still are not sure what it is related to. They could be a reflex, seizure activity, or something else that I'm not aware of. They also are thinking he's beginning to get pneumonia from him being on the vent. That is definitely another road block for him and something else for Kevin and Kelci to worry about.

It's been so hard not being there for them. It's been hard not getting to hold Max's hand knowing what he's going through. It's been hard not getting to read to him as that was something I enjoyed doing while I was with him. And it's been hard not being there for Kev and Kelci. I just want to give them both a big hug! And smother Mr. Max in kisses. I LOVED being able to kiss his sweet forehead. That's something I really miss. After I gave Lyla a bath tonight I smelt the baby shampoo on her and it brought me back to kissing his forehead and him smelling like that. Oh, I miss that little boy.

Please pray that the pneumonia doesn't get out of hand and that they are able to get rid of it quickly so it doesn't effect or lead to anything else. Pray for healing of my sweet Max!

THANK YOU to everyone!!!! I know I sound like I'm repeating myself every time I've updated, but the support has been amazing! Thank you, thank you!

May 22, 2011

Mr. Max - Day 5

Sorry I haven't wrote an update yet today. Max had an ok day and is hanging in there. No changes for him in his vent settings or any tests. He's still tolerating his tube feedings great and is just a chunk! I got to spend a lot of time this morning sitting by him, holding his hand, and reading to him. I just love him to pieces.

Unfortunately, Sean and I had to say goodbye to him today. Miss Lyla was really missing her momma and her momma was missing her. She's had a crazy couple of weeks and I think a bit out of sorts. So, it was extremely hard to say goodbye to him today. And to be honest, bye was never a word out of my mouth. It was hard leaving him not knowing whether or not I was seeing him for the last time or until the next time I come up. I let him know how much I'm going to miss him and how much Sean, Lyla and I love him. I told him he was the strongest little boy I know and that I'm so proud of him! Oh, I love him.

There's a few things I wanted to address. One thing is this has nothing to do with shaken baby syndrome. Kevin and Kelci have peace that this was a total accident and do not blame the babysitter at all. The babysitter has come by and seen Max and to visit with Kevin and Kelci.

Another thing is I appreciate the emails from everyone thanking me for blogging all the updates. I know a lot of people that are checking know Kevin, Kelci and Max personally and I'm glad everyone can stay updated and be able to pray for specific things. And thank you to those that don't personally know them, but feel compelled to follow to keep up with the updates and to pray for the family as well.

Lastly, thank you to those that have messaged me telling me how strong they think they I am being for the family. I'll be very honest when I say, please don't think that. The truth is I haven't been strong at all. I cry at the slightest thing and have been held up by my brother more than once. There has been a few occasions where my brother has been strong for me. I've even told him that I should be the one consoling him. I would love to say I've been strong, but I would be very much lying if I said that. Kevin and Kelci have been so strong with everything and they continue to amaze me every single day.

Please pray that God comforts and consoles them in whatever ways they need. Continue to pray for the medical staff that care for Max and for peace with whatever decisions come their way. God is still amazing!

May 21, 2011

Mr. Max

Max had a pretty good night. They played with different adjustments with his vent settings, but he didn't tolerate it very well. So now his vent settings have been upped. They also upped his tube feeding which is great. He is now taking 16 ml per hour. His face is also less swollen today and he looks just like cute Max. Kelci put him in a Steelers outfit and he looks just adorable!

That's about it for the night. We'll be spending the day loving on him! I read him a few books and love the time I get to hold his hand and kiss his sweet forehead. Hopefully the ophthalmologist will be coming in today, but I think that is it for today.

Thank you again for the prayers. We can not express how thankful we are and how much it is appreciated. Kevin and Kelci are doing the best the can, given the situation and I'm amazed how strong they are.

Thank YOU!

11:30 update:
The transplant team has come and talked to Kevin and Kelci about organ donation. Unfortunately, they found out out that they would not be able to donate any of Max's organs besides his heart valves and tissue. This is pretty devastating to Kelci has it was something she was hoping for. Please pray for peace for Kevin and Kelci right now as they have some tough decisions ahead of them.

5:30 update:
Max is still hanging in there. Boy is he a cutie! I just love him so much! They haven't made any changes on the vent. The ophthalmologist still hasn't come by either. Kelci has gotten to lay in the bed next to him and do some snuggling. And....while she was doing that, Max slightly opened his eyes and also squeezed her finger. The neurologist came in and visited with them, but he thought it was either a reflex or him having a small seizure. The neurologists' opinion for the day is that Max hasn't had any changes. He is still doing good with his tube feedings as well. He's had a lot of visitors today so he's got lots of love!
Another thing we did today was take some pictures. I know this can be a controversial subject, but Kevin and Kelci felt this is something they wanted, but they are not sure if or when they will look at them. But this way they will be there for them, if they decided. He sure is a cute little boy! And he is so so loved! Thanks again for the prayers! We all feel so blessed by everyone's support! God is GOOD!

May 20, 2011

Max Update

Max is hanging in there. We arrived back to Wichita last night around 9:30. It felt so good to see that little boy again. I missed him! :)

By the time we had gotten there, the neurologist had already been in and visited them with the results. Since I wasn't there, what I'm about to write is just what had been repeated to me and I'm hoping its accurate.

Unfortunately, our sweet Max doesn't have good odds. The doctor gave him 1 in a million odds of a full recovery and a 1 in 500,000 odds of a partial recovery. He said that Max would not have a good quality of life, either way. He would most likely need to be hooked to the ventilator for the rest of his life as well as bed/wheelchair bound, I believe. The results of his MRI and EGG came back with the fact sweet Max is not brain dead, but does have severe brain damage. It was noted that he had 2 strokes effecting both sides of his brain. A spinal tap was done, but results will not be in for another day or so. He has had a feeding tube placed a number of times, but each time it coils in his stomach, so he has yet to eat. Radiology is supposed to come in today to place it, so hopefully Max will get some food today. The ophthalmologist is supposed to be coming by as well. No other tests will be done today, from what I understand. They also have taken him off his seizure medicine, Phenobarb, and we are hoping he tolerates that well.

As far as breathing, he isn't assisting much, but he did have a period of time last night for about an hour where he was assisting regularly. Today they will be weaning his vent settings a little to see how he tolerates it. He's also been moved to a crib bed so Kelci has been able to snuggle with him a little. She still has not been able to hold him! We have been reading books to him and telling him stories. Sean and I are making sure to tell him how great the Jayhawks are! :) We have been by his side letting him know just how much he is loved.

They weighed him again today and he is about 11 lbs. Such a chunky monkey! He does have some swelling around his eyes but overall looks as good as he can. He sure is a cute little boy!

Unfortunately, Kevin and Kelci have a tough decision before them. I ask you to lift them up in prayer and to have peace with the decisions ahead. As a family, we are amazed but the outpouring love and support everyone has give them and the family. The comments, messages, and texts are wonderful! God is amazing and miracles happen everyday! Max is our sweet miracle!!

We love you, Max.

ETA: I've also had people ask where they can send cards or donate to an account. An account has been opened for Max at Credit Union of America. If you would like to donate you can make deposits at any CREDIT UNION OF AMERICA LOCATION or mail checks payable to: BURKEY FAMILY FUND, 711 W DOUGLAS,WICHITA KS 67213. As far as cards, Max is currently at Via Christi- St. Francis or the hospital has a website you can leave messages for Max! THANK YOU to everyone. You have no idea how much it is appreciated!

3:15 update
They tried placing a PICC line but was unsuccessful. Both veins are too little to thread the line through. He was also having trouble with his catheter and they have now removed it and just monitoring it for now. We are still waiting for radiology to come and place his feeding tube. They also are adjusting his vent settings to see if he'll assist with breathing more on his own. He's had some aganol breathing which has been happening off and on since he was admitted. The change in the vent settings is a big step so please pray for great things!

5:15 update
The radiologist has come and the feeding tube is now in place. He started his feeding just a few minutes ago, getting 2 ml per hour, I believe. The neurologists also came in a bit ago and said there was no change except for a little grip on the first 2 fingers and his thumb on his right hand. Nothing substantial, but something worth noting. Thank you for the prayers!!!

10:45 update

Max wasn't tolerating the new vent settings very well so they upped them from 18 forced breaths to 22 breaths. He's also having a bit more agonal breathing. Also, the ophthalmologist didn't stop by and is supposed to do so tomorrow. His right leg is beginning to feel a little "hard" compared to the left leg and we are hoping that we don't lose the IV that is in that leg. He's also getting 6ml of breast milk per hour continuously. Other than that, we are just loving on him, reading to him and telling him how much we love him! He's had a lot of visitors love on him as well! I can't express how much everyone appreciates the prayers, notes, messages, and calls! Love to all.

Mr. Max Update

Last night Sean and I left the hospital to come home and it was the absolute hardest thing I've done in a very long time. I DID NOT want to leave him. There are to many what-ifs and I just love that little boy so much I don't want to be away from him. Especially when he needs his favorite aunt, right? :) But really, it was the hardest thing to do. We will be going back either tonight or tomorrow morning. I already can't wait to see him! My parents headed home last night but are headed back again this morning. Kelci's mom and aunt are there and also a close friend of hers. Kevin, Kelci and Max are definitely surrounded with love and support. And I must say the messages, phone calls, comments, texts, and prayers from everyone is amazing! Thank you!

Here's a recent update:

Last night the neurologist visited with them and from what I understand, told them that there was no change in the past 24 hours. Unfortunately, that wasn't what everyone was hoping to hear. But he did mention they would be doing 3 tests today. I got a text from Kelci a bit ago and then a call from Kevin and Max has started his morning with an EEG, which is a test to measure brain activity. After that he'll be having a spinal tap to check for spinal meningitis and then he'll be having a MRI. The hope is by evening we will have some answers. Kevin also mentioned that Max had a good night but that there wasn't any change.

So today is a VERY big day for sweet Max, along with all the family. So big prayers need sent up for him. I pray for great results, restoration of his lungs so he'll start to assist with breathing more, and for healing of his beautiful body. I also pray for the doctors in his care and the medical staff performing all the test today. And I pray for Kevin and Kelci. You both are being so strong and I'm so proud of you. You both are amazing people and I love you guys!

Also, if you'd like to know a little more about Max, you can visit Kelci's blog here and see just how cute he is in a few pictures!

Thank you everyone for your prayers! I'll update again once I here more! God is AMAZING!

UPDATE: 11:00
I heard from Kevin and Max has completed the EEG and the MRI and is now waiting on the spinal tap.

May 18, 2011

My Sweet Nephew

By now a few of you might know about the traumatic actions that have happened recently. For those that don't, my nephew Max stopped breathing yesterday afternoon while at his sitters. They are thinking he went 20 minutes without oxygen at the minimum. He was able to be resuscitated and now is fighting this battle in the PICU at the hospital. He is on a ventilator as he isn't breathing on his own. He's had a few tests but we have no answers yet. He will have a MRI and a spinal tap in the next few days. He is unresponsive but we are hopeful that soon he will react and open up his beautiful eyes. The small reaction we are getting is when they check his pupils for response. They are constricting but then do a "pulsating" motion which isn't normal. He had a feeding tube placed today but after an xray it was determined that he wasn't placed right so they are waiting until tomorrow to re-xray it to see if it has moved. And then the hope is that he will start to get some breast milk tomorrow.

The doctors have warned us to prepare for the worst but hope for the best. Numerous doctors have come in but no one has any real news for us. They have been very helpful with answering questions we may have. Kevin and Kelci are doing the best they can, given the situation as is the rest of the family that has been here. Max is a very, very, very loved baby.

Also, this morning Max was baptized by the hospital chaplain and Sean and I are his sponsors. I love that sweet boy!

Through it all, we are hopeful. God is an amazing God and we have faith! Max is a fighter and stronger than I'll ever be. It's heartbreaking seeing him lay there and knowing there isn't much we can do for him. But we can pray. And pray. And pray. And that is what we will continue to. do. We will let him know he isn't alone and that we all love him more than he will ever understand.

Please pray for the doctors that are in charge of his care, pray for Max to respond and to start breathing on his own and pray for all of the family, especially Kevin and Kelci.

I will update more once I know something. Please continue to pray. Spread the word! God is a mighty God and Mr. Max is a fighter! I love you, Max.

28 weeks!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 28 Weeks

Size of baby: Baby Jay is about 14-15 inches long and weighs about 2 lbs! He's the size of a Chinese cabbage.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 30 lbs. Thanks, baby.

Maternity Clothes: Pants and some shirts here and there.

Gender: A boy!! :)

Movement: All the time. He's a mover. From what I remember with being pregnant with Lyla, this boy moves a ton more than her. He hangs out mostly on my right side and likes to stick his butt out!

Sleep: Ugh. I miss great sleep. But recently it hasn't been to bad.

What I miss: Margarita's, my skinny jeans, working out.

Cravings: Fruit, steak, vinegar-y things.

Symptoms: Everything that comes with pregnancy. Hungry all the time, peeing all the time, emotional. I'm also having braxton hicks a ton as well.

Best Moment this week: Reaching the 3rd trimester!

I had my appt today. With the craziness of last week, I never got into do my glucose test so I have to do that soon. But other than that, everything looks good. I'm measuring 28 weeks and the baby's heartbeat was 150. I go back in 4 weeks and then we do 2 week visits after that. Makes me a bit nervous it is getting so close. But I'm excited. Am I ready? Not really. But hopefully I'll get everything I want done, finished soon.

May 5, 2011

Embrace the camera - May 5th

Lyla was my little assistant the other day at a photo session and I caught one of the both of us. And I don't have to bad of a chipmunk face going on in this one. I'm not loving many pictures of me these days... counting down the weeks until the chipmunk face is gone! Oh, and I have a cute little baby to hold! :)

I'm missing her today. We "talked" on the phone as best as a 20 month old can talk. She gets excited when she figures out it is me on the other side! :) She loves her momma! And her momma really loves her!

Head over to Emily's blog if you want to participate in Embrace the Camera!

May 4, 2011


I have completely forgotten what it is like to be without child. I have gotten SO much done today, it's amazing. I feel like I can finally breathe and that I'm not way behind on business! Though, I miss my baby a ton! It's been weird not hearing "Mommy, Mommy, Mommy" 9 million times a day! I'm sure she's having fun with her Granna and Pops, though!

Also, yesterday, little brother's bedding came in. I don't do bumpers for safety reasons and to me they are a waste of money. But a pretty waste of money :). So, when I say bedding, I really mean a sham and crib sheet. I'm still on the hunt for a navy bed skirt. I'd love the pottery barn bed skirt that goes with the set but I can't fathom $49 just for looks, i.e. hide stuff under the crib! :) I'm really ready to find a house as I wish this little boy got his own room and didn't have to room with his mom and dad. Someday....soon. Hopefully.

Other than that, that's about it. Life is pretty boring without Ly around. Boring but productive! :)

Like Father, Like Daugther.

Saying Lyla is a momma's girl would be an understatement. I actually feel bad for Sean at times (and for myself at some moments) that she is so attached to me, especially in the evenings. But the minute Sean mentions going outside, this girl is all about her Dad. When he golfs, she golfs. When he feeds the pups, she feeds the pups. If he's doing anything, she's following right behind.
My parents got her this little lawn mower so now whenever Daddy mows, Lyla mows!

I lost my keys in the great unknown
And call me please 'Cuz I can't find my phone

This is the stuff that drives me crazy
This is the stuff that's getting to me lately
In the middle of my little mess
I forget how big I'm blessed

This is the stuff that gets under my skin
But I gotta trust You know exactly what You're doing
It might not be what I would choose
But this is the stuff You use

45 in a 35
Sirens and fines while I'm running behind

This is the stuff that drives me crazy
This is the stuff that's getting to me lately
In the middle of my little mess
I forget how big I'm blessed

This is the stuff that gets under my skin
But I gotta trust You know exactly what You're doing
It might not be what I would choose
But this is the stuff You use

So break me of impatience
Conquer my frustrations
I've got a new appreciation
It's not the end of the world
Oh Oh Oh

This is the stuff that drives me crazy
This is the stuff
Someone save me
In the middle of my little mess
I forget how big I'm blessed

This is the stuff that gets under my skin
And I've gotta trust You know exactly what You're doing
It might not be what I would choose
But this is the stuff You use

*In the middle of my little mess
I forget how big I'm blessed*

26 weeks!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 26 Weeks
Size of baby: As of my sono last Wednesday, Baby Jay weighed 1 lb 8oz so I'm sure he's a little over that. He's also the length of a cucumber!

Total Weight Gain/Loss:Ugh. 27 lbs! Oi Vey! I'm 6 lbs away from what I gained with Lyla and I still have 14 weeks or so to go! If I gain a pound a week from here on, I'll be at 42 lbs and just a few lbs under what I weighed when I delivered Ly.

Maternity Clothes: Just pants and a few shirts here and there.

Gender: Baby Jay is a BOY with an ADORABLE name!

Movement: All the time. He is a mover and a groover! He moves way more than I remember Lyla moving.

Sleep: I miss uninterrupted sleep. It takes effort to roll over and I wake up numerous times.

What I miss:Margarita's, my skinny jeans, sleeping through the night, working out.

Cravings: Everything. I'm hungry ALL.THE.TIME! I just ate and I'm still hungry. We ate out the other day and I had a TON of food, finished some of Lyla's and I was still hungry. And I'm craving sweets a lot too!

Symptoms:All the normal stuff.

Best Moment this week: Seeing Baby Jay again, getting a mattress for his crib and getting a few more things for him!

As far as my picture... I'm huge. I look like I'm about 30 weeks. The chipmunk face is making its comeback too. Boo hoo to you chipmunk. I'm dreaming of running, Insanity and a gym membership. Only 4 more months. Or if GOD super duper loves me then maybe less.

May 1, 2011

Happy May Day!

Nothing to exciting for us today! We went to church and then to Arby's for lunch. Nap time for Lyla and some couponing for me. Then I had a photo session and we just finished supper and desert.

Exciting, right?

But let's see... what have we done this weekend? We went to a few garage sales after Sean got off work on Friday. Lyla got a few cute play clothes and a bunch of books. Garage sales are great for books! Baby Jay got a little toy, but Lyla really made out like a bandit! She also got this little riding pony which she loves!

Saturday we headed to Hays to run a few errands. We stopped by Sears to get a sander and I feel in love with appliances! I'm so ready to move! :) I then had a session and we headed to Taco Grande for lunch. Then Lyla and I enjoyed a nap while Sean worked outside. I, then, being a great wife, cleaned out his vehicle for him! We also turned Lyla's car seat around in his truck and moved it over to make room for Baby Jay. It's a pain and a half putting Lyla in a 3 door truck. As much as I didn't want to turn her around yet, it's so much easier. And, we only drive Sean's truck about once a month, if that. She's still rear-facing in my vehicle!

And that was our weekend! I love time with the fam!

Here's to a busy week! And Miss Ly will be spending a few days with her Granna and Pops and I'm looking forward to get caught up with work stuff! I'll miss her like crazy but it'll be ncie to get a few things done!
