Today I received some special visitors. Lindsey and her 3 year old son Andrew came to visit me. Lindsey is a mom I met in the twin moms club. We had a great lunch at my favorite place, Chick-fil-a. It was nice to talk with someone who has had to go through a NICU experience like mine. Little Andrew was so funny. He had just had a procedure done and was a little loopy from the medicine. Read about Andrew and Adam's story and see how these two miracle boys are doing.
Kaidyn is doing good and has gained more weight. She now weights 2lb 8.2oz! Almost at three pounds. Her feeds are now based on weight so as she gets bigger she will get more food. In about a two weeks she should begin bottle feeds. She is having some issues with her oxygen. They are having a hard time getting her percentage of oxygen to come down. Also, the pressure/rate the oxygen is flowing through her cannula is not able to be weened because her oxygen need increases when they try to decrease it. Pray for strong lungs for Baby Kaidyn. If she is not able to come down on her oxygen over the next month they will begin to talk about when we can do to get her to need less oxygen or possibly she could come home with an oxygen tank. So pray for her.
Mata Update: Baby Jocelyn when through her procedure and they will be able to operate here in Temple. She will however have to wait until she is around 1 year old to have the surgery. This means she will come home with a colostomy bag of some sort. She still has some time before she comes home but it will be sooner than expected now that the surgery has been put off. Continue to pray for her family.
