Friday Night Kyla/Mama Update:

Well, Mama gets to go home tomorrow (Saturday) after living in the bubble called the hospital.

Kyla has been making improvements all around, with a few set backs today.The week has flown by- and I thought I'd share a Kyla update with you.Our girl was on an IV - of glucose something? - up until last night. They were hoping she could come down out of the special care nursery after she was weaned (into my room!!!) , but alas, this AM I was told that our girl had lost "90 grams" - and is down to 5 lbs, 13 ounces, and so they want her to stay one more day in the nursery.

The IV did come out but the weight drop made them nervous.She is also not eating as well as she had been the last 2 days and is more "gaggy" today (as well as super sleepy). She started looking more jaundiced, which is appropriate right around 3 days, which she 'll be tonight. So she is on track for everything, but has encountered a bit of a "lull" - which is totally normal, from what the nurses and Ped. say. They said the red blood cells in her system, because of the jaundice, are causing her to be so sleepy. Her lungs seem OK.

So we'll find out Saturday how Kyla is doing. Mama will go home, but maybe without our girl :( It makes me sad, but at the same time, we are thankful that it isn't anything too serious for keeping her back. She isn't in the 'NICU" - the Level 2 is a step between the regular nursery and NICU- but still, she could be worse off, and she's been doing well. **she's also been filling her pants regularly, which is great!

**Keifer Lynn didn't want much to do with her on Wednesday but was more open about peeking through the window at her yesterday. At home, she apparently talks about "Mama holding Kyla" - so she's coming around, and Chris spent most of yesterday and all night at home with her. She's been in hog heaven with first Papa Dale & Nana Di spending time with her, and now Papa Jim & Nana Marge spent the day with her. She is going to be SO off her routine - oh boy!

Drophot video links are loaded, and we have to upload more pics....I'm unable to upload my pics here at the hospital, however, if you are a friend of mine on Facebook- you'll be able to see a few of the pics that CJ tagged for me of Kyla :)

Thank you for the continued prayers and support!

Hi. You don't know me, but I've created a "infertility group" blog. I love chatting with other who have been though what I have and wanted to let you know about it.
