Babies Situation:

Good news late today for Trinity. Late in the day she was removed from the oscillator and is now back on the CPAP. They also removed the Phototherapy light and instead will be using a Billy Light. They dub it the Billy light as it is used to help move the bilirubin through the girls system. Trinity is taking her feeds well (1 cc). They are now feeding her every 6 hours. She has a new IV in her right arm and was given more blood. She also had her first bath. Overall all very positive steps.

Kinsley on the other hand is still on the oscillator and has still yet to start her feeds. Our Doctor indicated that she should be starting her feeds soon. Her Blood Gas and other tests show that she has high sugar levels which means she still needs more oxygen. The good news though for Kinsley comes back that the medicine has worked and her PDA has closed. Again it could open in the future but for now it is closed. The ultrasound though does show a VSD - a flap open in the lower chamber of the heart. This should take care of itself sometime in the next 6 months but they will be monitoring it as well.

Parent's Thoughts:

Our prayers are answered for the day. Another day under our belts and a huge praise that Kinsley does not need heart surgery. As you can see, it has been up and down for them and us over the past few days. Emotionally, it is starting to wear us down a bit and unfortunately, we did not get to see them tonight as my car was totaled in a hail storm on my way home.

Our Daily Encouragement:

Give unto the Lord the glory due to unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

Psalm 29:2
