Several tests have been taking place and another one is due Monday. They are getting a general idea as to whether or not Kayleigh needs this Nissen surgery. The cray part is, Kayleigh has not been refluxing at all throughout the whole 8 months until these past few days. She has thrown up once or twice a day. They did stop her Prevacid medication other day in order to do one this test coming up on Monday, so we are thinking the medication worked to prevent Kayleigh from refluxing. So now the decision comes about to keep her on medication or do the Nissen? I would love to keep her on the medication, but we'll see what this other test proves.
After losing a little bit of weight due to the diuretics, she has put more ounces back on. She is back up to 7 pounds - 5 ounces now and is looking chunkier than ever. We are so pleased with how happy she is and how comfortable she seems to be throughout the day. After spending a week in Oklahoma training for my new job, it was so awesome to get back to see the family. Aimee and I spent quite some time hanging out with Kayleigh and taking some great photos.
Speaking of Oklahoma, if you haven't seen Abby's Blog (Praying for Abby), you must go check it out. I had the pleasure spending the week with the Riggs, at their house all last week. Their family was so wonderful to open their home to me and treat me as if I were part of the family. It was such a blessing to spend time with their children and learn a great deal from such an amazing Christian man such as Brent. He has gifted with such great knowledge about so many things that I learned a lot from his teachings. He actually does some of his teaching on his Twitters, so make sure you check him out there: www.Twitter.com/Brent_Riggs
I had such a pleasure spending some time with Landis and Sami throughout the week, but was touched by an angel when I shared some time with Abby at the hospital. She is having such a tough time right now, but never fails to break a smile for the camera. Abby is by far one of the strongest little girls I know. She was in serious pain and discomfort, even when loaded with pain medication. She wanted to color, paint, and give lots of kisses. Aimee was jealous after she heard how many kisses Abby was stealing from me. It was so cute. We shot webs from out spider-fingers and we acted as if we were pirates. Abby is a blessing to so many and she truly touched my heart. God Bless the Riggs family and praise the Lord for newly found friendships.
"Brent, We love you all so much and thank you for being so awesome to us!"
