NICU Follow-up Appointment











Kaidyn has her first NICU follow-up appointment on Thursday and it went great! She is now weighing in at 11.4 lbs.

We started off the day visiting the very special Maya and her mom Kristy in Waco. Maya is doing good since she has been home but is still a tiny little Mayabug. She and Kaidyn had a good time playing and Kaidyn showed her all her tricks. It was so cute!

We then went to Temple for our follow-up appointment. First the occupational therapist ( the same one that visited us weekly in the NICU) evaluated Kaidyn. By doing various exercises with her she was able to determine how far along she is developmentally. And Kaidyn is doing great! She measured about 3 months, which is how old she is corrected, and even four months on her motor skills! She showed her that she loved to roll over and kick and play. She's a regular wiggle worm and that fun paper on the doctor's table added to the fun and excitement. The only thing she scored low on was language because she would show her she could laugh, but she does here at home.

We then got to see another familiar face when the neonatal nurse practitioner came to do her evaluation on Kaidyn. Again, everything looked good. By this time Kaidyn was worn out from the kicking and the rolling.

All in all it was a great trip which we will make again in three months!

    Isaiah 63:7-9: I will mention the lovingkindnesses of the LORD, and the praises of the LORD, according to all that the LORD hath bestowed on us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel, which he hath bestowed on them according to his mercies, and according to the multitude of his lovingkindnesses. For he said, Surely they are my people, children that will not lie: so he was their Saviour. In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old.

    2 Samuel 22:2-4 And he said, The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence. I will call on the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

    2 Samuel 22:29-31 For thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness. For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall. As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.

    Psalms 103:1-5 Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.

    Psalms 61:1-4 Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.
