At 12:30 in the afternoon, Kayleigh was transferred from the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) to the NPCN (Neonatal Progressive Care Unit). We are just so stoked to have moved her to a newer and more private, upscale location. The photos above and my last night's post does all the talking about the difference in rooms, but it just means we are one step closer to going home.
Kayleigh has been so wonderful lately and she is continuing to show signs of progression. There has not been a longer time over the past 3 months where she has been doing so well consecutively. It seems that we are moving in the right direction and I am glad that we will not be doing the pulmonary cath for 2-3 more weeks. That way Kayleigh can continue to grow without any disruption.
I didn't post the weight last night, because I they didn't weigh her until the early morning. she weighed in at 1563 which is a little less than normal. Tonight's weight came in at 1475, but they blamed that drop on the different scales in NPCN. I don't know what it the true weight, so we will just see what tomorrow's weight is and go from there. I would hate to see that she is burning too many calories these past couple days. She did however grow 200 grams in the past week, which is unbelievable for Kayleigh's track record.
Kayleigh is still working hard at latching on to Aimee's breast, but we are improving a little bit each time. We have a consult tomorrow with a lactation nurse. They were talking about having Aimee use the a guard to help Kayleigh latch on. Hopefully that is the answer. We are really wanting Kayleigh to get the hang of things for bonding purposes, even though I don't think there will be a bonding issue when she realizes how bad we spoil her. ha!
Thank you all so much for your support as your prayers are certainly helping us make progress!
