After everything that was going on yesterday, I forgot to mention that Kayleigh is now a term baby. Woo Hoo! Aimee's due date was the 12th, but it is crazy to think that Kayleigh is almost 3 months old now. I was watching Aimee hold her today thinking about how much she has grown. At one point, Kayleigh was a scary 13 ounces and now she is weighing 2 pounds - 12 ounces which is 3 times her size. I know that her feeds have been a hard hurdle to jump, but if you look at where she was and where she is now, that is awesome! I even changed her diaper today and noticed she wasn't wearing the little tiny diapers anymore. Maybe normal children grow fast, but we all know Kayleigh is no normal baby. She does things her way, ha-ha.
Overall, today was a good day. The Upper GI test results came back showing nothing out of place that would be causing her feeds to back up. They were looking for a narrowing in the intestines, which now shows that slow motility is to blame. Once her tummy goes down, they are going to start her on the breast milk and probably from a bottle since motility starts from the mouth. She was breathing great all day today and got the hiccups a couple times which was very cute. Her oxygen is still at 3 liters and 25%. We held her for a couple hours today and took some more photos of another new outfit that Aimee bought her. We were shocked that Baby's R US had some preemie clothes that would fit Kayleigh, but they did. The brown and pink outfit is Aimee's and Marsha's (One of our primary nurses) favorite one.
Thank you all so much for your support and pray that her belly goes down so we can start her back on the breast milk feeds.
