Babies Situation:

Since both Girls aren’t really improving on their feedings, their primary doctor decided to change it up on both of them. Trinity has been taken off the RS formula and is back to getting breast milk with Zantac to help with her reflux. Kinsley had her tests run this morning and they didn’t find reflux but they did find that she gets very close to aspirating when she swallows. They decided to change her back to a slow flow nipple and she is now getting the RS (Rice supplement) formula every 4 hours instead of breast milk every 3 hours. She will also start getting caffeine. Both Girls can go from the state of being wide awake to a state of being sleepy very quickly during a feed. The doctor hopes the caffeine will help give her brain the right signals to maintain a more stable state.


Parent's Thoughts:

Today was very interesting. I was almost positive that Kinsley had severe reflux by the way she acts during feedings. By her not having severe reflux, this makes her case even more mind boggling. I feel like the doctors are running out of options. We have a few more weeks of trial and error before we might have to consider the G-tube. Please continue to pray for us.

Our Daily Encouragement:

For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Hebrews 4:15-16
