    KLuwe is an embarassment to Minnesotans.

    You can bet the Purple People Eaters and Bud Grant are laughing at him.

    12/10/09 *** PRAISE UPDATE ***

    We took Baby-Kay to Minneapolis Children's Hospital for an Ultra-Sound and a VCUG scan (like a "live" x-ray")

    First: Both Kidneys are normal sized!

    Second: There is no damage/swelling to her right kidney & ureter.

    Third: Her left Kidney & ureter have only STAGE 2 "VesicoUretaral Reflux"
    (1 is VERY minor, 5 requires emergency surgery)

    Treatment will be a "light" once-a-day dose of Antibiotics for about 1 year to knock down/kill the E-Coli bacteria in her bladder and then redo the same 2 re-scans in 12 months

    Lastly:The "reflux" and swelling should heal itself over time!!!


    Our God is a mighty God.. and he has blessed us with a mighty group of warriors.

    Still working on getting pictures uploaded.

    Thank you again!

    December 2009
    The Hennepin Custody Evaluator called today. He told us that he made numerous attempts to speak to Miss K. and on one call she hung up on him.

    The Evaluators response was "That's enough for me. I am closing the Evaluation 'as-is' and returning it to the judge. ** WOO HOO**

    The judge will now hopefully rule for permanent custody for us and Baby-Kay.

    Please pray for this!!

    Please Ping others who have been following our saga!

    Thank you

    Oh... I've changed the name reference for Kay's "biological"

    Instead of baby-momma, she is referred to as Miss K.

    12/02/09 Baby Kay Update

    October 2009:

    Miss K. news
    On 10/1 Miss K. was officially charged with Felony Auto theft.

    That's because She "took" her grandma's car in late August and never returned it. The bank assumed ownership on 9/1 and after 30 days "breach of trust" it became Felony Auto Theft.

    She was arrested on Oct. 2 and then and released on her own recognizance. (WHY???)

    Baby-Kay celebrated her 1st birthday on 10/10 - We had a big party for her on 10/11 and had about 30 people show up.

    ** I am working on gettng photos posted for all to see ***

    On 10/19 She was supposed to be in court for her arraignment and she failed to appear.
    (Like we didn't see that coming HA)

    Ramsey Co. has now issued an arrest warrant for her.

    According to her Grandma, she also may have more charges coming, stemming from her Domestic Assault of grandma, and also theft of a bicycle from somewhere else.

    10/17 - The Ramsey Co. Guardian-Ad-Litem was assigned to Baby-Kay (YEA !!) November 2009:

    Baby-Kay was brought to the Doctor for a check up and to get her shots up to date.
    Doctor is very concerned because of the E-Coli bladder infection she had earlier in the year, and that it was known by Miss-K since shortly after her birth, and that she failed to have it addressed when she was a newborn.

    She was treated for it earlier this spring by us, but the 2nd set of antibiotics could not administered because the prescription was almost $100, and we could not afford it, and Miss-K didn't have Baby-Kay signed up form Medcial Assistance at that time.

    What does this mean? Well thankfully we now have Kay covered by Medical Assistance, and they will cover the $4000 worth of medical tests, plus strong antibiotics Baby-Kay will now need to battle the infection. This problem, could cause damage to her kidneys and the ureter tubes between her bladder and kidneys.

    Please continue to pray for Baby-Kay.

    Pray that the infection has not caused any permanent damage to her urinary tract.

    All this continues to stack up against Miss-K and her lack of parental caring and involvement. She still has not come to visit Baby-Kay snce Sept 8th, and has only made limited contact via text messages to us. Usually only a rare "How is Kay".

    We are now waiting for the final Custody Evaluation report to be issued by the Guardian.

    Our legal bills are currently more than we have available in her legal fund, but our lawyer is very sympathetic and is willing to accept payments on an "as available" basis.

    Thank you for reading and thank you for your prayers!

    Pingers, please ping anyone who you think would like to read Baby-Kay's story!

    Mr. and Mrs JG and Baby-Kay

    Not far from us, a baby came into this world.
    She came to us, just six days old, because momma was lost.
    She melted our hearts from the moment the blankie was unfurled.
    We took her in, gave her a home, with no thought to cost.

    The days became weeks, the weeks became months, and now near a year.
    She learned to crawl, and is learning to walk.
    Momma came and went, came and went, with barely even a tear.
    ma-ma and da-de are her first words as she learns to talk.

    Now in September a judge gave us the right,
    to have her and keep her safe from all harm
    We now have less stress, and sleep better at night.
    She continues to make us laugh and smile, with her charm.

    Momma is still choses to live life wild
    Occasionally coming to visit as an infrequent guest.
    With only a moderate amount of regard for her child.
    and refusing to understand, that the child be with us, is the best.

    This is the story, from start to finish
    We go along with her, and she with us from Day to day
    There is more to her tale, to read if you wish
    Go here to read the whole story our Baby-Kay

    P.S. Thank you for letting me share our story with your Thread.

    I thought I would post a link to my post from earlier in the week.

    I'd like for people to read our story and share their experiences if they've gone through something similiar.

    I'm surprised at the number of poeple I've met who have gone through similiar situatuon.
