1/23/08 - LOOK WHO'S TALKING!!!
Is this not the face of Kayleigh saying "But Daddy Pleeeeaaasse?"
"I still see you Daddy"
I think I spent too much time trying to come up with something on that last one, but I failed each time.
I need your help! What would your quote say?
Update: Kayleigh is doing great. She is on low vent settings and it just having a good ole time over the past few days. We have not had any episodes, major desats or bad spells. She may get a little grumpy when she poops in her pants, but don't we all! (I mean, they all!)
Kayleigh's doctors are going to meet on Monday to discuss whether or not they feel she needs to get a tracheotomy. Both bronchial tubes are collapsing, but nothing exterior is causing them to collapse. Plus, the amount of pressure being used to keep them open is next to none, so no one can really explain what is wrong.
The best guess is that her bronchials are beyond weak, but what is puzzling is they were never weak before all of this. We can't turn back if we do a trach now and waiting a couple weeks for this to heal may not work, which will then cause her to need the trach then. The longer we wait also increases the risk of scarring from the vent tube, so that's not good either. I am sure what ever decision made will be the best one for Kayleigh. We just need to ALL pray that God leads the doctors to the best path for Kayleigh.
I wasn't going to post tonight, but I couldn't wait to start off the new look with a brand new post. I am so happy that you all like the new look. I felt like a kid with a new toy, I was so excited that I nearly pee'd my pants (Okay, not really) - but I was so excited to finally see it!!!
Leelou has done such an amazing job helping me with Kayleigh's new blog look and I am so thankful and blessed by her generosity. She took time out of her "pregnant" and busy schedule to help our family. She is 8 months pregnant to be exact and still looking for a boy's name (not Dane because it is one syllable and her husband wants a two syllable name.) Anyhow, I think we should all bombard her with two syllable, baby boy name ideas! What do you think? :)
Not only was Leelou so great to us, she is promoting a baby shower filled with contests and prizes in honor of Mia and Kayleigh. When she announced this on her blog yesterday, we were so excited that we wanted to tell every single one of you so you can join in. So, grab your ice cream, pickles and mouse, and come join in the fun contests to hopefully win some cool prizes on Feb. 9th.
One of the contests is a baby photo contest, so when you send in your baby name ideas to Leelou, you can attach your baby photos for the contest as well. (Hey, Knock out Two birds with One stone) Below...I am posting her recent post from her site so you all can take the button and share it with everyone you know.
Let's make this one of the biggest virtual baby showers known to man! How fun is that going to be!?!?!?!
