Besides one minor issue, she was completely perfect today. She grew 10 grams from last night, which puts her at 1635 grams (3lbs - 9.7oz). She pooped several times today, so her bowels are getting on a normal routine and she is no longer backing up with the extra calories they are giving her. They added an extra bottle feeding in, so now she gets 5 bottle feeds and 3 tube feeds all day long. All 5 of her bottle feeds were flawless as she took and tolerated every ml and had no aspirates on any of them. Last but not least, they dropped her oxygen flow to .2 liters and she is still satting close to 100% all the time with no desats or bradys.
Now that means there was only one thing that kept her day from being completely perfect. Besides Kayleigh doing all these perfect things, she didn't do any of it at home with all of us. We know she will soon though, so that is beyond exciting. It has just been long over due to see such a perfect day for her and can only pray that many more are to follow. Kayleigh deserves it more than anyone because we all know this has got to be so stressful on her to be a term baby couped up in an isolette for most of her day. You wouldn't just put your baby in a box and take her out every three hours to change her diaper and feed her if she was home. I am just happy that we may only have a couple more weeks of this. Since we have gotten to progressive care, we have been getting a little more antsy to take that trip out the front door! :)
Thank you all for your prayers and sorry I didn't get any photos today. I promise to take a bunch tomorrow for you. I know how you all love to see her pretty little face as much as possible. Please continue to pray for more days like today, so she will be ready to come home in a couple weeks. It is getting exciting and we just can't wait! The day is going to be one of the happiest days of our lives, that is for sure.
Thanks and God Bless,
The Freemans :)
