7/16/08 - Quick update

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to give you a quick update so no one kills me for not posting at all. Brandon, Allyson, my parents and I went to the beach in South Carolina today to meet up with some of my California relatives. It was a very needed one day getaway. Aimee had to stay behind for an appointment and was truly missed. Since we all came back looking like lobsters, I don't think she was too upset for not going. I am hurting badly as I feel the sunburn in my finger tips while I type!!!

So, I am going to make this quick and let you know that today was a good day. Kayleigh had a few desats, but was able to rest peacefully all day today. Her blood gases came back good and she gained a little weight. She weighed in at 613 grams which is 1 pound 5.6 ounces. That is up from yesterday so we are very happy to see that.

Other than that, she is doing well. I can't wait to go see her tomorrow. Even though I had a well needed break, I miss her deeply. Thank you all for your prayers and emails. I got quite a few today and enjoyed reading them tonight. It just makes me feel so awesome to see all those comments. I truly appreciate every single one of them.

God Bless!!!

I check in every night for an update - I was sitting here refreshing the page, waiting for one! LOL... so I'm glad you posted.

I'm glad that you had the opportunity to go and have a day "off" from all the stress - it's important that you and Aimee take care of yourselves too!

And woohoo about the weight gain for Kayleigh!! She's getting to be a big girl already!!

Take care... can't wait for tomorrow's pictures.
