DAY 127

Rick's been doing a lot of singing today. First, we had a small little cake to celebrate Riley's b-day and he mouthed the words to Happy B-day to her and then helped her blow out the candles on her cake. The kids brought us a CD player today and I turned it on to 92.1 The Possum and Rick started mouthing the words to "Prop Me Up Beside The Jukebox", "There's No Way I Could Make It Without You" and "Mountain of Love"...I was laughing and crying at the same time. And I asked him who sings Mountain of Love and he said Charlie Pride! I love it! I'm so glad to get a radio in the room...some days it's just to hectic to stay out in the living room.

I gave Rick a haircut today and trimmed his mustache and shaved him...he is the hairest man...grooming him is a full time job! Riley will turn 11 on October 28th and our wedding anniversary is the same day...14 great years.

I'm ready to get the surgery for the baclofen pump behind us. Pate will transport us on Tuesday morning. I'm guessing we'll leave here not later than 6 am. I think the drive to Dallas is making me as nervous as the actual surgery!

Thanks to everyone for all your prayers. Keep singing His praises!



  1. Crystal,
    Sounds like a fun day. I know you two miss the kids horribly, but like you said the other day, everyday is one day closer! Thank you Jesus!! I can understand the apprehension about the trip to Dallas, but everything is going to be OK! Let's pray and agree, Father we come before you with praise and thanksgiving and Father we thank you for all you have done for Rick and Crystal. Father, now we pray for a successful trip to the baclofen surgery and for the pump to do exactly
    what they are expecting, as a matter of fact Lord we pray for it to exceed their expectations. Father we pray for the surgical team that they are led by you through this surgery, (whether they know it or not) and they do everything just like it is supposed to be done. Father we pray for supernatural peace, the peace that passes all understanding for Crystal, Father we thank you for the angels in heaven to escort them to Dallas and we praise you and thank you for it in the Name of Jesus. Lord we thank you for being with the children and the rest of the family and watching over them and giveing them comfort in this time of trials and tribulation. Father we lift Kelly C. and Kelly P. before you and Father we pray for healing for them and for you meeting the needs of their families and the other folks who need a supernatural touch from Jesus. In Jesus name we pray, Amen and Amen, God Bless America and our leaders around the world, Later, Rick

  2. Singing?!? Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!

  3. Oh, it sounds like a wonderful weekend for the Kieschnick family! Rick is making such great progress.
    Wow, can you believe Riley will be 11!?! And you guys have been married for 14 years!!! What wonderful blessings you all have had and will continue to have.
    The boys have been asking when we can visit again...they want to see Rick so badly, especially Dane. Tell him to keep working hard and we will hopefully get there sometime this month.
    Love and miss you both!
