Did you think Kayleigh was going to let us have three good days in a row? NOPE!! Just look at that picture - she is pondering what kind of trouble she is going to cause next. If you have followed her story from the beginning, you will very well know that Kayleigh doesn't let us rejoice in good news for long.
This morning, Kayleigh decided to have numerous desats which eventually ended with her being put on a bubble CPAP, which to me looks like a normal CPAP (with a head gear) but with Bubbles. Actually the bubbles are there to help Kayleigh remember to breath as it is suppose to startle her brain receptors. Don't ask me how it does that though. Even with the new Bubble CPAP, she was still having desats, so they drew some blood to see if she had an infection and is sick. Those results came back negative, thank goodness. As of right now, she is still having desats but if bringing herself out of them quickly. They don't seem too concerned about it and decided to increase her caffeine to see if that will help.
Please pray that they will find out what is the root of the problem and fix it quickly so Kayleigh can rest easy and focus on her growth. Speaking of growth, they increased her food and she is currently weighing 566 grams (1.397 pounds), so we are making improvements there. Kayleigh had three poops marked down today, so we are extremely happy to see the food is working its way through. The nurse also said her stomach is soft and her color is looking great, meaning her digestive system is working normal.
Let's hope that she gets a lot of rest tonight and tomorrow becomes a much better day. We need your prayers everyday. We are positive that your prayers are the only reason she has made it this far. Let's all pray that she will get control of her breathing so she can move on and focus on her growth.
Aimee worked on a project for everyone to see ALL of the photos we have taken of Kayleigh and put it to music. Please click on the photo link below to see it :)
