We're Still Going Strong






Kaidyn is still growing weighing in at a whopping 2lb 6oz! She is now eating 21mL every 3 hours. She's growing fast. All of Kaidyn's cultures to see if her cheeks were infected came back negative so she was able to come off her antibiotics and get that IV out of her hand. She's much happier now. She has been doing better and is slowly beginning to adjust to life off the ventilator without steroids. Today Kaidyn got to put on real baby clothes, a preemie oneies. It is pretty big on her but she has plenty of time to grow into it. You know what means....WE GOTTA GET A CHRISTMAS OUTFIT!!! I am trying to get ready for a NICU Christmas. I decorated her space for Christmas by getting a Christmas blanket to put over her isolette. Keep the prayers coming!

And update on the Morris family:

They are doing good. Zach moved to the continuing care nursery which means they are just waiting for him to grow so he can go home. He is still having some heart rate drops. Because of this, he is still in the NICU. He is growing big weighing 6lb 12oz. Pray for Zach and his parents Shavone and Steven.

  1. Wonderful news! Love all the pics and great job of "decorating." She's a precious Christmas gift all on her own!
    Know that you're in my thoughts and prayers!
    Isaiah 43:1-3a But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour...

  2. What a tremendous comfort we have in the wounds of Jesus! Praying!
    Isaiah 49:13-16a Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the LORD hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted. But Zion said, The LORD hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me. Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands...
