The 5th Belongs to Calvin: Calvin Loves Kimora (updates below)

This month’s 5th is dedicated to Calvin’s cousin, Kimora Michaela, who was born two months after Calvin’s first birthday.

One year ago, I posted about Kimora and her family: first to ask for prayers when Raquel went into labor at 32 weeks, then to give an update and ask for continued prayers when Kimora was born.

I am asking you again to pray for Kimora with us

A few hours ago, Kimora was taken to Kaiser by paramedics after having a seizure and being unresponsive.

I am asking you to pray with us for Kimora and her family. Please, please use whatever faith you have to send hope, healing energy, positive vibes, loving thoughts, and goodness to Kimora and her family…

  • That Kimora is healed.
  • That Kimora is unharmed by this seizure and whatever caused it.
  • That Kimora opens her eyes and smiles at her mommy and daddy.
  • That Raquel and Ray feel the love and prayers surrounding them.
  • That Kihana (Kimora’s new baby sister) is safe and healthy throughout all this.
  • That God brings peace and comfort in this time of stress and worry and fear.

I’ve also made these buttons, which you can use to show your support and share the request for thoughts and prayers. Thank you so much.

Pray for Kimora Michaela

 


My sweet Calvin, I know that you, Rainbow, and Gaelen, are watching over Cousin Kimora right now. Please let her know that her mommy, daddy, and sister love her, that we all love her, and that we can’t wait for her to get better so she can start running around again. Calvin, we know you helped her take her first steps on her birthday. Please help her open her eyes again today. Love you and your sisters always, always.


Update 1

I just spoke with my mom, who called the ER to check on Kimora, and they told her they went home. I haven’t been able to get in touch with Raquel, but I’m sure it’s because they are resting after being up all night with their baby girl. Will update again when I hear more. Please continue to hold Kimora and family in your thoughts are prayers for continued recovery.

Update 2

Raquel called me back and was able to tell me more before Kimora woke up again.

The doctors believe that Kimora has a respiratory virus and that her vaccinations pushed her fever up, and that’s what caused her febral seizures. After a mix-up with the 911 dispatcher (which sent an ambulance to the wrong city), paramedics came. Kimora was unresponsive, which is why they brought her to the hospital. She still had a fever and was shaking, so they observed her in the emergency room.

When Kimora became alert again her babbling was a bit slurred, but it could have been from the medication and exhaustion. She is home now, but they will be observing her to make sure everything is normal. Please pray that continued observation will show that the seizures had no harmful effects on her and her development.

The doctors also said that kids usually grow out of having febral seizures by the time they are 5 or 6 years old, but that Kimora will need to be watched closely whenever she has a cold or gets sick, even if it is just a minor fever. Please pray that Kimora grows out of this sooner and that whenever she is ill, we will be able to keep her temperature down.

Thank you so much for your support, positive thoughts and energy, kind words, and prayers. I know Raquel will be blessed to see all of the support and especially the Facebook profile pics of Kimora.

  1. I’m really glad to hear she is doing better. My neice has febrile convulsions and they are horrid, but like you say fortunately they do normally grow out of them. I hope she has no more and that she is 100% well again very soon.

    Crystal, I wanted to stop over and wish you a happy Mother’s day. My heart breaks that you don’t have your babies here in your arms to hug and love . . . I know you are blessed by being their Mommy still. <3

  5. Glad she is better – I will be praying. How scary that must have been for her and all of her loved ones – praying for strength for all of you. xoxo
