For those who did not see my Tweet on Twitter or Facebook yesterday, Kayleigh's biopsy came back NEGATIVE for Hirschsprung's Disease. WOO HOO! We will still have to keep our eyes out and figure out what is going on with her belly, but this is a step in the right direction. Many of you posted comments on other possibilities, so we will be bringing those up to the doctors on Monday. Thank you so much!!!
On another great note, one of our primary nurses (possibly two now) will be part of the staff that will take care of Kayleigh when she comes home. We are so pumped and excited to hear that. It will make this transition that much easier and exciting. We love our nurses so much that we were afraid of having to get to know and love someone new, so it is a blessing that we will have couple that already know Kayleigh really well and can be a strong advocate for her.
Many of you know that having a new nurse or a nurse that doesn't know your child can be the most stressful part of the NICU, especially when you have been there for quite some time. So this is by far some of most exciting news we have gotten in a while. It feels like so much weight has been lifted off our shoulders.
On the other hand, many of you asked about our home and how that situation is going. We met with United Family Services and they were able to help us extend our foreclosure from March 29th to April 27th. The bank has agreed to look at our information to offer up a possible solution, but Aimee and I feel they won't make much of a change for us. But, at least we were able to stick it out for another month. The donation money was not able to help us catch back up what the bank needs, so we felt our best option was to make sure our family's insurance will not lapse and our on;y vehicle can get us around for work. If the bank doesn't come up with a good option for us, we may have family who will allow us to pack in their home, but I will let you know that later when the details are more concrete.
Please pray that things go well this week. The surgeries are going to be Tuesday or Wednesday, but I will let you all know the second I find out. Keep up with Twitter and Facebook because sometimes I will update there first. Thank you all for your resent prayers because God was certaily listening :)
I hope everyone is having a blessed weekend.
