4/6/09 - POSTPONED

After we got all that great news yesterday, the NICU roller coaster is at it again. We have not gotten official results back from all different tests, but Kayleigh started to go downhill yesterday and quick! They have not idea why this happened and they are taking all measures to figure it out.

The only test that has come back yet is he RSV and that is negative. The ECHO showed Kayleigh's pulmonay pressures were elevated and her heart's right side was not functioning as strong as it normally is. The cardiologists are getting together for their weekly meeting on Thursday to determine whether or not to do another heart cath procedure to determine what is going on with her heart. Their fears are the heart may be causing this vicious cycle.

To explain what happened, yesterday Kayleigh was doing great and then all of the sudden, she was coughing, spitting up and having mucousy drainage out of her nose and trach. Her sats dropped quickly and they had to increase her oxygen and pulmonary pressures to get her sats in the right position. After a few hours of controlling her stability, she started to struggle again with the same problems.

The Gastroenterologist came in and felt like Kayleigh's liver and spline were enlarged, so they will be doing an ultrasound on those to determine what may be causing that. With problems rising and multiple tests being performed, hopefully the doctors find something soon.

Please stay close for updates and pray that whatever is causing this issue will be discovered and taken care of quickly. Please pray it has nothing to do with her heart and we can move on from the nightmares we had with her pulmonary pressures being high. Unfortunately, with all this going on, it does postpone the upcoming surgeries for this week.

Please pray for our sweet Kayleigh and I will update as soon as I hear something.

God Bless,

Keeping Kayleigh in my prayers everynight. It's terrible that so many new issues keep presenting themselves before a previous concern can be solved. Like I say everytime - your little fighter will keep fighting with your unwavering love and support and God's mercy. May she keep strong.

I am praying hard for Kayleigh right now!!! This is so upsetting and aggravating to me to learn of this and I can only imagine what you two must be going through all so. I know God knows and we can't also see the whole picture but we have to trust that he knows best and keep our faith strong and know that this is in his will for her only to make her stronger and beat another thing. Please keep us updated as you can and she will show us all once again how strong she is and will come through this with flying colors. She may be trying to tell us all that she is just not ready for the next two procedures just yet, like we may be. Keep up the awesome faith you both have and we are here for you all the time.

kathypeterson said...

Could it be a mucus plug in her trach causing the low sats? I will pray they find the answers to her problems. Have you checked into a second opinion at another hospital yet? It just seems this NICU team has run out of answers for Kayleigh's care or am I just mistaken? I hope so and will pray on this. Keep us posted Adam. We shall lift you in prayer as always.

Urgh! My heart dropped when I began to read your post. I am so sorry that things took a drastic turn, but I will pray with everything I got, that she will turn right back around again. She's done it before, she is a fighter!

Jennifer said...

Kayleigh is a part of God's perfect plan and we will never know at least not here....why God chose Kayleigh to endure all that she has and still is.

My prayers are that God will comfort you as you sit and wait for your precious child to heal.

Covering Kayleigh in prayer and hoping that she is comfortable as her fragile body recovers from yet another set back.


Thank you for sharing your angel with us. It is an honor for me to read about this amazing little girl and to storm the heavens above in prayer for her.

Oh Adam and Aimee, I am so sorry that you guys have to face another set back but know that our God is good no matter what and it is in his perfect timing and plan that Kayleigh will finally get to come home. I pray that the doctors and nurses find what is going on with Miss Kayleigh and fix it quickly so that she can once and for all come home where she belongs. Kayleigh is such a fighter and I know she will get over this quickly. I will continue to lift her up in prayer as well as your precious family.

I'm not much of a pray-er, even when my own sweet son was in the NICU a prayer rarely came to my lips - just determination.

For some reason I just felt like you needed an extra prayer this morning. So I thought I would add my little voice.


Praying that your family has strength, peace and many, many happy days. May God always be with you.
