12/23/08 - Photos

Well, I brought my camera to take some photos of Kayleigh tonight, but I forgot the insert card that saves all the photos on it. Oops :( And you know what??? Kayleigh's swelling has gone down a lot, so she isn't so puffy anymore. I will be sure not to forget it tomorrow.

Kayleigh is doing great today for her 6th month birthday! While they are waiting for her pneumonia to go away and recover a little bit more, they decided to insert a tube directly in to Kayleigh nose and all the way in to her intestines. It passes her stomach, so this will reduce the chances of reflux/micro-aspirates as much as possible for right now. They started her on feeds tonight (1ml/hr of plain breast milk continuously) so she can focus on growth. They don't want to risk her having a bad outcome from a small procedure(jg-tube). If you haven't noticed, Kayleigh can handle all the tough hurdles like open heart surgery, but she has so much trouble with smaller things like a urinary tract infection or the cath procedure. "Drama Queen!"

Overall, today was another quiet/great day and we are praying that the next two days are just as quiet so we can all enjoy the holidays with a little less stress on our plates. I can't wait to take some photos of Kayleigh in her Christmas beanie and blanket. Because it is red and white, I actually think she will look like "Where's Waldo." Ha!

Since I made a boo boo with the camera today, I didn't want those to go un-noticed for sending in their photos for Kayleigh's scrapbook. Here are some of our followers who we want to say "THANK YOU" to. We appreciate you all sending in the photos and this scrap book is going to be out of this world! We have so many people who have supported us through this, I can't wait to see Kayleigh's eyes when she really understands the impact she has made on so many people. It is a true blessing and we are so thankful to have every single one of you holding our hands through this difficult journey. If you have not sent in your photos or if I missed it, please email an attachment photo to me. (Adam@TeamFreemanProperties.com)

Enjoy the photos:


















God Bless,

Kayleigh you are a blessing to us all, we love you so much and continue to pray for you daily. As I promised I will send your money every month so that mommie and daddy can stay in the hospital with you and don't have to leave you any more then they already do. I am in the hospital with Sidney right now as I have been off and on for the last month and I know he is saying Merry Christmas to you as well. I spoke to George on the phone this morning as I always do when I am stuck here and he prayed for Kayleigh with me over the phone and said to tell you he "LUBS Ailee" We continue to pray for God to continue His miracle and we await every post telling us how Kayleigh is doing.

Adam and Aimee,
Merry Christmas to you and your family. What a long road you have been down over the last 6 months, but look at the many blessings and miracles you have had the opportunity to receive. Miss Kayleigh has had a rough time, but yet she is still here! What a little fighter she is, and will continue to be. And your family...your faith and strength through all this is such an inspiration to us all. I feel blessed to know you all, I have learned so much from you. Faith and family are the two most important things in this world, and you have both. Thank you for allowing all of us to share in your journey. I will continue to pray for you all, and I hope you all will be able to enjoy the blessings of this wonderful time of year. I work tonight, will give all these little ones that can't be home with their families lots of love! I plan on going over to see Kayleigh tonight to personally wish her a Merry Christmas! Take care, Freemans, and know that miracles happen every day, and I truly believe we are seeing one unfold right before us!
Merry Christmas!
