Here is what a blood transfusion looks like for a preemie. They have a device that automatically presses a syringe full of blood through an IV into Kayleigh. This will be her fourth transfusion so far, but she is doing really well with each procedure.
We just got an update and she is doing fantastic. There were a couple desats earlier today, but nothing else since then. Aimee and I brought a really dark blanket from home to cover her isolette so barely any light can get in. This will not only allow her to get better rest, but maybe it is helping with her desats.
They increased her feeds to 7ml today which is more than we thought, but we are not arguing one bit! Woo hoo. EAT Kayleigh EAT!!!! She weighed in at 690 grams tonight which is 1 lb - 8.3 ounces. Woo hoo. GROW Kayleigh GROW!!!! Because they increased her feeds, her poops are increasing too. She had 3 big poops today. Woo hoo. POOP Kayleigh POOP!!!! We are certainly blessed to see 4 wonderful days in a row!!!
Thanks everyone for the prayer chains, prayer circles and all the other kind of prayers. I can see them working in Kayleigh each day. You all are a blessing to our family and please keep things going. Tell your friends, co workers and churches to pray, pray, pray!!!! When we are able to bring her home, we are going to throw her a welcome home party like no other! I just wish it wouldn't take Kayleigh several years to find out how many wonderful friends that are pulling for her right now. Thank you God for blogs!
