Kaidyn is doing great! No heart rate drops lately which is good. She is still eating good getting 22 mL every 3 hours. She now weighs 2 lb 6.6 oz. She had lost about an ounce and but quickly gained it back. She got a bath today and did very well, no crying. Her clothes are super big on her and they are just preemie! I still can't get over that. But she looks so cute in them. She is getting spoiled already and prefers to be held. When I am holding her she is in a deeper sleep and down on her oxygen. Today when I stood up to put her back she immediately needed more oxygen like she knew I was putting her back in her isolette and didn't want to go. She got really upset. I wish I could just hold her but I can't. Continue to pray for her. My worry now is how long she will require oxygen. Pray her lungs go strong and that she will come down on her oxygen need.
Tuesday Baby Jocelyn Mata will be having a procedure that will determine the extent of her future surgeries. A recap: Jocelyn is the daughter of Jane and Gabriel. She was born with intestinal issue and complications. She had to have surgery at one day of life to separate her intestines. She will have a series of more surgeries to reconstruct her lower half including her bottom. Tomorrow she will have a procedure to determine if the rest of her surgeries can be done here in Temple or if Baby Jocelyn will need to go out of state to a specialist to continue care. Please pray for this family. They are going through a lot and need prayer from some prayer warriors and I know Kaidyn has a lot that read this.
