Updates: The Ryland & Railey Saga Continues
As crystal posted this morning, we received the phone call last night regarding Railey and her blood transfusion, we were freaked out, when the phone rang. It went well and she is doing much better today. also, they removed the IV from her tummy and was going to put in a picc line in her head but,it just didn''t work out right. Therefore, its just an IV thats on the side of her teeny tiny head right now. Something I forgot to mention yesterday was that her blood-sugar was a little high so, she recieved a small shot of insalin. That has all cleared up and the heart murmur was barely audible so, thats good as well. Now, they are worried about her stomach being just a little hard so, she was given a supository tonight, to help her clean out a little bit. She also received her very first haircut today and the nurse saved the hair and put it between clear tape for us. Yep, its looking more and more every day, that she will have her mommys strawberry blonde hair and let me tell you, that tickels mommy to the core. Hoping she will poop tonight so, she can start feeding again tomorrow. Railey and her brother were both desatting tonight and giving us small and short heart attacks. We made it through but, i''m going to be in a nursing home before the next 3 months are up. My stress level is almost, to reach its peek. although, I think its just when we are there and the alarms start going off. Okay, enough about me,lets move on.
Ryland is doing good tonight, as of a couple hours ago, when we left the hospital. He is up to 11 cc''s every 3 hours, which boils down to around a little over 2 teaspoons. Yeah, it doesn''t sound like much but, its awesome for his size. He is doing really excellent and his small heart murmur wasn''t heard at all tonight. although, he is hogging all the breast milk, mommy can barely keep up with his hungry butt. LOL! Also, Ryland and Railey are going to meet my mom (Grandma Lila) tomorrow, when she flies in to see them. Okay, thats about all the updates for today, I think. Oh yeah, Crystal kangarooed with Ryland tonight and we''re hoping, to be able to kangaroo with railey tomorrow. More pictures posted now as well. Keep the prayers coming please!!
Sklin: Of course you may add them to your prayer list. We would love that in fact!! ;)
