5/3/09 - Peacefully Sleeping
Kayleigh had another uneventful day filled with peaceful sleeping such as you see above. The swelling has not increased anymore over night, which is good news towards getting closer to bringing her home. They need to transfer her hypertension medication over before they can send her home, which they will begin to do on Monday. Pray she tolerates the new medication so she can come home soon.
Right now, she is up on her feeds and tolerating it well. She is rarely ever showing signs of irritation and her heavy breathing comes on every now and then. We are not sure what the cause of that is, but since she has never done it before, we can only relate it to her brain injury.
Our goal right now is to pray the swelling in her brain does not take her from us before we can bring her home to her beautiful room. We have prayed many prayers for this day, and even though her situation was not what we expected, we still can't wait to walk her out of those hospital doors, out in to the sunlight and make that glorious journey to our home.
Please continue to pray that our dreams come true and may her time here on earth ends with us at home and not in the hospital. May God bless us with this wish, even though His plans for Kayleigh may be different in the near future.
We thank you all again SO MUCH for your prayers and support. You have all been so wonderful to us and we can't thank you enough. I have read almost every email that has come in, but unfortunately will not be able to respond to everyone. Please know that your emails and comments keep us strong and help us through these difficult days.
