One more day for Kayleigh to be off her feeds. They will be starting from scratch again on her feeds, but we are completely happy knowing they are taking it slow a day at a time. She is doing great otherwise. She didn't lose much weight from being off feeds for 7 days, so that is really good. She weighed in tonight at 880 again, which is around 1 pound 15 ounces. When they get her feeds going again, I have a really strong feeling she is going to gain some major weight and never look back. Our prayer request would be for Kayleigh to tolerate her feeds this time around and grow fast.
Aimee and I were able to hold her for a good amount of time today and she was just smiling, sneezing and yawning like crazy. She was so cute!!! Her breathing was doing really well today with no major desats. It seems that everything besides her feeds are going as smooth as possible. The VSD (hole in the heart) has not gotten any worse and there is no fluid in her lungs right now, so we are extremely happy about that. We still need her to get to that 2000 gram mark so she can have the heart surgery done, but it is a blessing like no other that the VSD is not causing her any problems right now. It would spell disaster if it did because of the doctors having to start her feeds back from square one. She just wouldn't be able to grow quick enough with her heart slowly taking a toll on her. God is amazing!
Thank you all for your support through this and we look forward to an exciting couple weeks as Kayleigh starts her feeds, starts to grow and becomes a chunk. That is the plan!
