It was another awesome day in the NICU. It started off kinda slow though. There was an emergency in the NICU with another baby needing emergency surgery. The surgery had to be performed in the NICU. So, the NICU was shut down most of the day. I didn't get to see Kaidyn until her 5 o'clock hands on time. I got to hold her again after her temperature check and diaper change. This time for 3 hours. It was wonderful. She stayed nice and warm the entire time so she got to have her first bath! She did so well. She just laid back and relaxed like she was having a spa day or something. It is so awesome to be able to spend so much time with her.
Today Kaidyn and I ask that you say a prayer for all the babies in the NICU. We know that Kaidyn has a journey ahead of her but there are so many babies who do as well. I also want to ask that you all say a special prayer for a family I met while here. The Simmons family had a baby girl named Catherine in the NICU with spina bifida. Baby Catherine did not make it through her second surgery. Pray for their family as they grieve for their baby. I know it is a hard process, a never ending process it seems. So please keep the Simmons family in your prayers.
