Kayleigh is still doing great and has not had any setbacks. As a matter of fact, they have taken her off the epinaphrine (blood pressure medicine), weaned her off her sedation medicine almost completely, increased her feeds to 12 mls every three hours, and they are thinking about extubating her later this afternoon if the chest x-rays look good. They have some chest PT to do which is to help loosen up her lungs to prepare her for extubation. Hopefully it will all go smooth and she will continue to shock us with her unbelievably progression. We are just amazed at how well she is doing and I don't mind it one single bit :) God, You have certainly heard all the prayers out there and we can't thank you enough for the blessings you have given us.
***On a very sad note, one of our friends Rachel and Ryan, who we met along the way, lost their baby girl Hannah (Hannah's Story) this morning. We don't have any update on how or why, but please pray for their family.
Rachel & Ryan unfortunately ALSO lost their preemie, Carly (Carly's Story) not too long ago, when she was 4 months old due to a heart defect. Carly is one of "Our Angel's" here on Kayleigh's site. She was in the same NICU as Kayleigh a few months before we arrived. God has certainly tested this family & they need a lot of support to get through this tough time. Thank you so much.
This is Helaina. She is a special little girl who has been praying for Kayleigh to get better. She has even been praying with her 5 month old sister, which we are so happy to hear that she is setting an awesome example. Helaina is going to be a wonderful big sister. Helaina, Thank you so much for caring about our little girl so much and Sarah, your family is amazing. We thank you so much for your support through all of this and we pray that God will bless your family with much happiness and joy!
