There really wasn't any new news today, but it was a quiet day of recovery and progression. The progressive part of it all had to do with her feeds. Kayleigh was fed 5mls several times today and had no aspirates at all. They are starting her, and hopefully going to keep her on plain breast milk for a while. So far so good. I have been getting my days a little mixed up and Aimee is picking on me about it. The doctors gave me some Valium for my neck pain/stiffness and I keep thinking some things happened yesterday, but it was actually the day before. I just had to double check and make sure I didn't mention it yesterday, but Kayleigh weighed in at 4 lbs - 2 oz. She is doing much better and we are very happy to see that she is less agitated because that only means her UTI is not bothering her anymore.
For those who have not been able to put a face with the name. This is Rachel wearing Kayleigh's bracelet and signing/telling Kayleigh, "I Love you." Rachel and Ryan are our good friends that we met through Kayleigh's journey and I used to play baseball with Ryan a long time ago. If you remember, I had just posted about Rachel losing Hannah unexpectedly just after Kayleigh's heart surgery. Their other daughter past away just last year after 4 months of being in the same NICU as Kayleigh is in right now. Both Hannah and Carly are our special Angels who are watching over Kayleigh right now with our Lord in heaven. You can read their individual stories here: (Carly and Hannah) Rachel and Ryan both hold a special place in our hearts and we will always be there for them. We love you guys!
