7/26/08 - Our Hands


Today was another great day for Kayleigh. She is just amazing us all every single day and we are so blessed for the good days. She started her day off with some desats, but when the nurse changed her diaper, she figured out why Kayleigh was so upset. She had the biggest poop she has ever had so far. It is funny how we get so excited over her accomplishments, and right now it is her poops. She had so much, she filled up the diaper that doesn't even fit her in the first place. After her diaper was changed, she straightened up and started to not desat anymore.

We came up to see her this afternoon and she was getting her feeds at that time. She is now up to 10ml today. She seemed to be cranky though during her feeds. She didn't liked her arms or hands to be touched, but if you cupped your hand over her body, she was completely fine. As you see in the photo above, I was able to snap a picture while her hand was resting on mine. Her hand was more on top of mine, but by the time I grabbed the camera and took the photo, she moved it. ha-ha. I just called to get her weight and since she pooped quite a bit more than usual today, she dropped a little bit of weight. She weighed in at 692 grams, which this nurse takes off 22 grams for the CPAP hat and I am not sure if the others did that as well.
Brandon was so cute today. He read Kayleigh "Goodnight Moon" which is the book that Aimee used to read to him when he was a baby. He read it out loud with all the nurses around and he didn't get shy or hesitate one bit. He is going to be such an awesome big brother.
Thanks for all the prayers and wondeful words of encouragement. We just hope these good days continue so she can grow and we can tackle the surgery hurdles with flying colors. We are so glad to have everyone there for support. It means the world to us.

Glad things are going well. You better take one of those teeny diapers home and save it to look back on because before you know it she will have grown out of it! :)

Love the pic!!

You never thought as a teenager that one day you would get so excited over poop, did you? Our little ones are so precious to us that every single thing they do is a blessing even when it comes to the stinky stuff :)

I am so thankful for another good day for Kayleigh. Your family and Kaleigh are in my prayers.

God Bless,
Monica
