9/16/08 - New Idea!!!

Okay, I know that boring days are good, so I am not going to complain. But, nothing is happening yet in the poop category either and I am getting a little worried. They are doing another x-ray in the morning to determine their next move. They talked about doing a test where they (ouch) stick an instrument up Kayleigh's butt and get a piece of her skin on the lining of her poop chute. I didn't catch what all it tests for because I was too busy cringing at the sound of the procedure.

When we came in today, we heard again that Kayleigh was grumpy all morning, but when we held her and comforted her, she had a perma-grin on the whole time. She was swinging in her swing when we got there and I am so glad I got to see it. I know what you are thinking...YES I SHOULD HAVE TAKEN A PHOTO!!! We were running late and I decided to just leave my book bag and camera in the car. Aimee warned me with these exact words, "Watch, when we get up there she is going to be swinging in her chair and you are going to be mad that you decided not to bring the camera". Ooops!! She was right :(

Kayleigh did gain some weight back. She is weighing in at 1261 grams which is (2 pounds - 12.4 ounces). She is on 2 liters of air flow still and taking in 28% oxygen.

I am going to make sure I take the camera tomorrow and get some more photos for you all. I know everyone loves seeing the photos, so I will do my best to take some that don't all look alike. Can you imagine how many photos I am going to take when she comes home? I am going to have to buy a new computer just to have enough memory for all of her photos that I will take. It will be called Kayleigh's PC (Pictures Computer).

I made up a "Poopy Song" since the "Poopy Dance" isn't working. Since Wade Joye is an amazing singer, maybe I will record him singing it and post it on my blog. (ha-ha JK Wade...maybe) The song goes a little something like this...

You need to clamp down really hard,
until your face turns bright red.
Squeeze like never before,
and make the nurses change your bed.

We know it hurts your belly,
so push as hard as you possibly can.
You have got to get it out very soon,
or "your lack of" will hit the fan.

Kayleigh's got to poo poo, to get Mommy's moo moo!
Yes she's got to poo poo, to get Mommy's moo moo!

You can move on with your life,
Once you have gotten it all out.
Your bloggies will be so proud,
they will all certainly scream and shout.

Kayleigh, You can do it!!!
Mommy wants to feed you on her lap,
So please do what you got to do,
and take a big ole CRAP!!!!

Kayleigh's got to poo poo, to get Mommy's moo moo!
Yes I said, Kayleigh's got to poo poo, to get Mommy's moo moo!

She's got to POOOEEEYY POOOO000000ooooooo.....YEAH!!!!

Lord help me!

OMG I'm laughing my ass off over here re: your song!!! I'm sure when she's a teenager she's really going to appreciate it! haha!

So they still think shes got something in there to poop out? Poor little girl. Being constipated is no fun!


Adam said...

Gi Gi - Insane, no. Crazy, yes. Just trying to make the best out of an insanely crazy situation! :)

Kim, She has to poop out what is trapped before she can start her pure breast milk feeds.

Well, you know you've reached a new level when you've composed your own poopy song. ROFL!!!

Well, I will get my family to do a poopy song and dance together and maybe that will do the trick. LOL!

Can you believe how much she has grown? It just amazes me to see when you post her weight and to think that at one time she was measuring in just ounces, not pounds AND ounces. Grow, Kayleigh, grow! And poop, Kayleigh, poop!!

You guys are amazing :)
I have had 2 NICU babies and did not have the spirit to be able to post 1 blog much less everyday :)

I have never posted on here but have followed your story from pregnancy.

Kayleigh is amazing! She can and will get through this hurdle (poop).

I don't know you but came upon your blog by accident from the parents baby photo contest website. I just wanted to let you know that Kayleigh's story is wonderful and she is such a strong little girl. I love reading your blog and keeping up with how she is doing from day to day. I will keep her in my prayers and pray that she poops soon so she can start her mommy's milk soon. I hope you don't mind me reading your blog.
God Bless you and your family.

First time posting but have been follow Kayleigh since your very first babycenter post. God bless your little miracle.

Love the song...LOL I am singing the Poopy song and dancing the Poopy dance as I'm typing this :)

Go Kayleigh

Adam said...


Good call and thanks for keeping me on my toes. I forgot to mention that the ECHO came back unchanged, which is good. We know the hole is not going to close on its own, but being unchanged means it isn't getting bigger or causing any problems. WOO HOO :)

I'm at work so I can't burst out in laughter, but that was the best song ever!!!

I don't think your crazy you just have a good sense of humor. I'm singing the poopie song and doing the poopie dance for Kayleigh. Can they give her something to help her clean her system out and then start her on BM????


Adam said...


They have been giving her Glycerin deposits (suppositories) to help there and that isn't even helping. I will explain in the next blog of changes in the plan. Thanks :)


Unknown said...

WOW!!! That was so funny! I needed that laugh for the day! I've been out of town for a few days so I'm just now catching up. This is seriously gonna be in my head all day now! LOL!!!
