Special Visitors






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.

  1. Oh my goodness, could she be any cuter! Love all the personality shining through in those last two especially! It was such a pleasure to get to hang out with you yesterday, of course I wish the circumstances weren't what they were with Kaidyn & Andrew both having medical issues going on.

    Sorry Andrew was such a wile maniac from those drugs! He was sound asleep before we left the hospital parking lot!

    Praying for you, Eric, & Kaidyn today. God bless!

  4. She's looking so cute in her new duds!
    Know that the Lord is always with you, wrapping His loving arms around you and holding on tight!
    Psalms 18:2-6 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid. The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me. In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

  5. Know that I'm praying!
    Colossians 3:14-17 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
