Doctors Didn’t Think This 2-Pound Baby Would Survive, But She Proved Them Wrong

Watching a child deal with medical complications is every parent’s worst nightmare. The most devastating conditions of all are the ones that children are born with. Not many little ones have to face that reality, but for those who do, life is made all the more difficult.

Kenadie Jourdin-Bromley is a 12-year-old girl who was born with an extremely rare disease called primordial dwarfism, which results in stunted growth and vascular issues. Most people with primordial dwarfism don’t live past the age of 30, but that hasn’t stopped Kenadie from enjoying every second of her amazing life.

Primordial dwarfism starts in the womb. Babies affected by the disease start experiencing stunted growth before they’re even born.

When Kenadie was born, doctors didn’t expect her to survive very long outside of the hospital. Not only was she small in size, but she exhibited all the symptoms of primordial dwarfism, including heart and brain damage.

But at 12 years old, Kenadie is living a wonderful life. Sure, she’s shorter than all of her friends, but she doesn’t let that get her down!

Watch the adorable girl in action in this video:

We can only hope that Kenadie will continue defying the odds. She’s done a great job of that so far! In any case, we’re positive that this happy young lady will continue living her life to the fullest.

Classy: Obama pimps ‘BFD’ t-shirt on Twitter

http://twitter.com/#!/BarackObama/status/183348313444192257

Yep, the president of the United States took to his Twitter account last night to promote $30 Obamacare t-shirts with the initials “BFD.”

Some wondered:

@BarackObama what is a BFD?

— Jennifer Fatzinger (@Jenwahlberg) March 24, 2012

It’s a reference, of course, to when Vice President Joe Biden hailed the costly, constitutionally suspect legislation as a “Big F**king Deal.”

Flashback:

Twitter reaction was not altogether positive:

@BarackObama I respect my President, but I don't love that he's using "BFD" on a t-shirt.

— Reach Incorporated (@ReachInc) March 24, 2012

@BarackObama WTF?

— Tessa (@tessamarieog) March 24, 2012

@BarackObama how low will you go! NO CLASS!!!

— J Williams (@flatbrok) March 24, 2012

Not setting the best example of appropriate social media use, Mr President. MT @BarackObama: Health reform—still a BFD: http://t.co/zPclP9DL

— Fieldhouse Media (@fieldhousemedia) March 24, 2012

So, @BarackObama the BFD tee doesn't come with my mandated purchase? Some BS. NOBAMA2012

@BarackObama: Would you let Sasha and Malia wear this? RT: Health reform—still a BFD, and now it’s on a t-shirt: http://t.co/CPrq80I8

When Internet memes collide! #ilikeobamacare meets #bfd:

Bill Maher: Don’t lower the legal blood alcohol limit, you nanny-staters!

http://twitter.com/#!/billmaher/status/336247602238586882

So lowering the blood alcohol limit is an unacceptable intrusion by the Nanny State (even though doing so probably would save lives).

Gun control, on the other hand, is positively wonderful (even though the right to bear arms, unlike the right to drive, is protected by the U.S. Constitution):

And nationalizing one-seventh of the economy in the name of helping sick kids is also just dandy.

We at Twitchy haven’t taken a position on whether the blood alcohol limit should be lowered. We only ask that people who claim to oppose the Nanny State do so consistently, not just when it is politically expedient.

You Go To The Gas Pump To Fill Up, Not Get Robbed Like These People Did…

We all do it: we’re pumping gas and we turn away from the car to look at our phone or maybe even go into the store to get snacks. But think about this — did you leave your car unlocked? Odds are, you may have, and that’s when these criminals strike.

Police are calling them sliders, and it’s easy to see why when you watch them sliding between cars and slipping away with people’s personal belongings and wallets!

The best thing you can do to prevent this from happening to you? Lock your car, bring your belongings with you when you go inside, or tuck them away where no one can see them.

Lesson learned: always remain alert — even during the most mundane of errands.

Cats And Dogs Can Be Best Friends…And Here’s The Adorable Proof

The tale is as old as time: dogs and cats just don’t get along. While that may be the “rule,” this adorable duo is definitely the exception to it.

When Cosmo, a golden retriever puppy, and his fluffy friend Afera, a Russian blue kitten, are anywhere near each other, they tumble, pounce, and just play around. Prepare yourself for adorable overload!

Turns out, they’re definitely not alone, either.

Some friends are more gentle…

Then there are the rowdier ones.

I have a dog, but I’m seriously considering getting a kitten after seeing these cute couples!

When He Came Home From The Dentist, This Guy Had The Strangest (Most Hilarious) Fear

It’s no secret that when we’re under the influence of strong pain medications, we can say some hilarious things. And unfortunately, we also know that there’s generally someone nearby with a camera recording the whole thing.

That’s exactly the case for this couple. When her husband came home from the dentist after getting a cavity removed, he just wanted to make sure one very important thing on his body wouldn’t fall off. Luckily, his wife was nearby to reassure him…

That tape is truly a lifesaver!

Jeez, can you imagine what horrors would have taken place had he not tucked it away under the covers??

These Explorers Caught A Pair Of Evil Glowing Eyes Inside This Abandoned Asylum

By this point, if you find a former mental asylum, you can assume that it’s haunted. It’s really just a matter of how haunted the joint is. Is it plagued by playful ghosts, or overrun with specters of the angrier variety? When it comes to exploring the old Westborough State Hospital in Westborough, Massachusetts, the answers to those questions are respectively “yes” and “the latter.”

That’s at least judging by this video that was posted in December by a pair of urban explorers.

Upon reviewing the tape, they noticed what appeared to be a pair of glowing eyes watching them from the darkness.

(via The Paranormal Blog)

That is terrifyingly compelling. Normally, I would think it’s probably just a reflection. But what makes me think it could be authentic is that these eyes only make one appearance. It’s as if the spirit just wanted to remind the explorers that they definitely weren’t alone.

Realizing her father’s potential, YouTuber Daylafulla decided to record his rendition of the George Jones classic “Tennessee Whiskey.” While the pair sing along to the song in the car, the girl can’t help but smile proudly as her dad belts out one of his favorite tunes.

It should come as no surprise that the internet has been going absolutely crazy over this dad’s amazing vocal abilities. As of this writing, the video has 8.2 million views.

It’s only a matter of time before this country crooner makes it big.

A Man Heard Crying Coming From A Trash Can. And I’m So Glad He Looked Inside!

Derek, a man from Brooklyn, was walking down the street one day when he heard meow-like cries for help coming from a nearby trash can. He went to explore it and what he found was that it was empty except for a small, knotted black trash bag. Derek reached in and tore the bag open. Lo and behold, there was a a kitten inside of it, barely alive.

The shelters and rescue centers were closed for the night so Derek nurtured the kitten, which he nicknamed Gina Fortunado, until the morning. The next day Gina was handed over to professionals who will raise her until she can be lovingly adopted…hopefully by Derek! How anyone could be so heartless to throw a kitten into a trash can I’ll never know, but luckily there are plenty of good people like Derek around to lend a hand to those in need, no matter how small the creature. Source: YouTube Share Derek’s and Gina Fortunado’s story with your friends below.
