9/22/08 - You Like My New Mittens???

Isn't that just so adorable??? We walked in today and saw her with her mittens on and about lost it. I guess she has been pulling at all her tubes, so the answer to their problem was to make her look so darn cute. The mittens are so huge that they look like sleeves for her whole arm.

Kayleigh is doing just great today. She is still on the vent, but they did extubate her this morning. I guess it was too early because she struggled a little too much. They said they would let her rest another day and try again maybe tomorrow or the next day. I don't know if it will be tomorrow though. While we hung out with Kayleigh today, her oxygen was on 31% and when she was satting great, Marsha (Our other great Primary Nurse) would lower her oxygen to 29%, but then Kayleigh's sats would drop to the 70's and Marsha would have to increase it back up again. She did that this afternoon and was still doing that this evening when I called up there. Maybe she will turn things around and get off that vent sooner than later so we can start her feeds back.

She did gain some weight over the past day, which could be due to increased fluid from the surgery, but she weighed in at 1320 grams (2 lbs - 14.5 ounces).

Everyone check out the Joye Family (Our NICU friends) as one of their little twin girls (Adleigh) is going home tomorrow. WOO HOO! Aimee and I are going to send them a text messages at 4 in the morning that says: (WAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!) JK GUYS! I better get all the jokes out now because our day is coming soon :) Love you guys - Praise God!

Off the record, Aimee and I are highly looking forward to our date this Saturday. After our dinner, we are going to see "Nights in Rodanthe." Aimee and I read the book when we first started dating as it was a romantic love story. Yes guys, I love a good romantic story! Anyways, if you haven't read the book, read it! I am really anxious to see how the movie compares. The cast couldn't have been better for this movie. We love "The Notebook", so I am sure it will come close to being just as good, I hope :)

God Bless,

The Freemans :)

Hi Aimee and Adam!! My husband and I have been reading Kayleigh's blog and we have been praying for her. She is looking beautiful and healthy and we are completly sure that you will have her with you sooner than expected!!

We live in Guatemala (Central America) and just had a baby girl a month ago. She was born at 28 weeks and weighed 2.4 lb. She is still in the NICU since she has been having little complications but hopefully she will pull through and be back on her feeds again soon and keep gaining weight so we can take her home soon!

Anyway, just wanted to let you guys know that even though we are very far away we definitely understand what you're going through and will have all of you in our prayers.

You're blog is great and we decided to make one for our baby girl as well to share with the entire family! Great idea guys!

God Bless!!
