Three great days in a row is helping Mommy and Daddy's hair grow back. Sorry I didn't have any photos today. She was in the same exact position as she was yesterday, with the bubble CPAP and the beanie almost covering her eyes. The only thing noticeably different was her cleaner diaper, especially after that big poop she had yesterday. But I don't think I should take photos of that. ha-ha
Kayleigh has been doing great today, only recording one desat which hung around the 60's. Normally, she goes down to the 40's or even that one day she was down in the single digits. So we are much happier to see her where she is at. They weined her oxygen down to 25%, so hopefully she can hang out there comfortably for a while at that rate and GROW!!! If she tolerates her feeds today at 4ml, they will increase it to 5ml tomorrow. They said that if she continues to do well with the food, their plan is to increase it every 24 hours.
They are going to do some routine blood work later on and they'll also measure her so we can see how much longer she has gotten. Aimee and I can tell that her cheeks are starting to fill in and her hands/feet are really getting bigger. She weighed in at 654 grams last night, so her weight increased just a tiny bit. Since she has had her beanie on for three days now, Aimee thinks that a lot more hair will appear when they take it off. Just last week, she was getting more and more peach fuzz each day that went on, so we are excited to see what it looks like now.
For those who are praying for Adleigh, I wanted to give you an update and let you know her surgery went great and she is recovering well. You can follow their story also as I have a link over on the right tool bar. Liana shares a room with Kayleigh and Adleigh is just over in the next room. Every now and then, Liana and Kayleigh both like to keep the nurses busy by acting up at the same time. I guess they like fighting over attention. All three of them are a true blessing from God!
Thank you all and I will try to get some photos tomorrow.
