2/23/09 - Happy 8 Month Birthday Kayleigh!!!
8 Months - 240 Days - 5,760 hours - 345,600 minutes - 20,736,000 seconds TOO LONG IN THE NICU!!!!
But man she is looking GREAT! We had such a wonderful visit as we changed her trach again, but it was just Aimee and I this time. I think we got the hang of it. I am going to video a trach change so you all get the real understanding of what we go through.
Kayleigh hit the 7 pound mark! WOO HOO
She's possibly going to get the chance to try a bottle soon, so we are really looking forward to seeing how she does. We were speaking with the nurse and if Kayleigh takes a bottle and can increase her feedings that way, there really isn't any other factors that are keeping her in the hospital. She will eventually come off the Pain Meds over the next week and all that is left is her Flolan, which she can come home on.
How about that??? Let's all pray that she continues to WOW the Doctors and prove she is a big girl and can do all of this at home. When the talk of coming home becomes serious, they are going to get Kayleigh on her "Laptop" which is a small portable breathing machine instead of having that huge compartment that takes up half her space. That will be an amazing sight to see when that is gone.
We both did notice that Kayleigh's hair is looking a little on the blond side.
Aimee and I have been getting a lot of mixed comments, so what I would like is for everyone to vote who you think Kayleigh looks more like, Aimee or Me. The voting poll is on the right tool bar at the top, so have at it.
I wish everyone a wonderful week and don't forget to do your "Thoughtful Thursdays" and come back to post about it. We can't wait to read them!!!
