10/19/08 - Just Speechless!
Wow, where do I begin? Today really showed us there is light at the end of the tunnel and it is creeping on us quick! The doctor called us this morning and we unfortunately missed his call and weren't able to get in touch with him since he was already walking out the door for the day. He said he would talk to us tomorrow, so I am really looking forward to that conversation.
What I do know (from our nurse who heard the doctor during rounds today) is that Kayleigh's cardiac catheter procedure is being moved to Tuesday or Wednesday of this week. They also dropped her oxygen flow to .1 and are now feeding her PO (Bottle) feeds at every feeding. Through out the whole day, she killed every single bottle in about 15 minutes, so how is that for progression? WOW!!!!
From talking with the doctors last week, they were saying that after Kayleigh's catheter procedure, if everything looks good and she is feeding good and growing good, then she should be good to go home. Well, we don't know for sure, but since she is feeding great, she gained another 20 grams (1655 grams = 3lbs - 10.3 0z) and her procedure is this week, we may be getting ready for a homecoming before we know it. So the progression has been so amazing this past week as if she's just hit the fast forward button on the remote.
So, cross your fingers and say some prayers as we are getting closer to completing this miracle journey that we've been on for the past 27 weeks. Wow! It has been 27 weeks since we found out Kayleigh was growing behind schedule and this nightmare of a journey had begun. I am speechless right now that I just can't put in to words how amazing this feels. God has certainly blessed us with something so special and all I want to do for the rest of my life is use this experience to help others. This feeling in my heart is just so unbelievably fantastic that I could scream with joy from the top of my lungs, although I may give Aimee a heart attack with out prior notice. WOW!!! Just speechless!
GOD BLESS EVERYONE FOR ALL THE SUPPORT AND LET'S PRAY FOR A WONDERFUL WEEK!!!!
