I can't believe it has been a week already. I hope that time flies by this quickly through the next several months until Kayleigh is able to come home. I heard the funniest thing today from someone who posted a message. They said that Kayleigh's home right now is a "Womb with a View." Since Aimee and I are real estate agents, I am sure we will be using this funny comment often.
Well, I have to first apologize and tell you that Kayleigh cancelled her show tonight and I was not able to get any good photos. She felt it was more important to sleep than to pose for Daddy. I am sure it won't be the last time. Seriously, I am glad she was resting because I feel so bad when she is up and moving around. I know that growth comes with rest and we want her to be as least active as possible right now.
Today was a good day in the nurse's eyes, but I felt a little off for some reason. First of all, they moved her to another station which to me felt like it was more cramped and busy. I do not like change, so it may take some time getting used to. I think the first taste of it was bad because I walked in and there were several nurses and other family members crowded in the room. How is my litte girl going to rest with all this commotion? I am sure I just need to relax. They said she will stay in this room until she leaves, so that bugs me too. I liked where she was before because there was no one next to her and the room seemed to be more open and less cluttered. Can you tell I am going to be a psycho Daddy already?
Also, Test results came back and her tummy was not as full with air as it was excess waste that just needs to work its way through. Since she started to poop a little, I am glad that it is heading in the right direction. She also came off the biliribbon lights again and you can really tell a difference in her skin. Aimee is having a little trouble with pumping and isn't getting anything. She spoke with her Doctor and was able to get a prescription for Reglan which is suppose to help move things along. If anyone has any insight on this, Aimee would love some feedback.
We did get some bad news today, but the Nurse felt like it was nothing to worry about. They said they did a cotton swab of her nose only to find out Kayleigh has MRSA. Now as a grappler/wrestler, I know of Staphylococcus is long for Staph infection. That is not good if I were to get it because it could cause serious skin lesions that really have no cure. They said it is really common of preemies to have MRSA bacteria, but they often don't become active. If they were to come active, it would cause skin infections or pneumonia. They are going to keep an eye on the MRSA over the next couple weeks and treat it with a antibiotic that limits the number of bacteria to prevent larger chances of it harming Kayleigh. The Nurse said this is really common and we should not worry. That is impossible!
Other than that, they said that Kayleigh is doing great and there are no other issues to worry about. Please pray that this MRSA is nothing and will soon pass. I have been getting a lot of great emails from people and I thank you so much. We love to hear success stories, so please share more with us.
