We're Having a Great Day

Kaidyn is doing great today. She was put on the conventional ventilator and is doing very well. They are working on weening her off of that ventilator so she can be ventilator free. Her head scan was great, no brain bleeds. They have increased the amount of food she is getting from .5 mL to 1.0 mL. So basically from one drop to two drops. It's days like today that make getting through this easier. Since she is in the process of being weened off the ventilator and getting food she is not getting her "happy calm down medicine", so she is feisty. All the nurses have commented that she was feisty before but now it's more so. She was trying to turn her head and crawl out of her isolette today. Well not really crawl out, she was pushing up with her legs and feet, pushing her forward. I guess that means she's feeling good. So, today was a very good day!


  1. Tears of joy in my eyes! You keep on fighting, little one!
    This passage is going to be in Ed's sermon on Sunday. Wanted to share it with you. Praying so very hard at this end!
    Philippians 4:19-20: “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”
