Our precious Ashlyn is not doing well at all. Her kidney function is getting worse. She is in renal failure and this is making the edema worse. The doctor said that her kidneys are beyond the point to where they could get better. They are just too far gone. They had to increase the ventilator settings to provide more support. She is just not doing well overall. This has been so hard. It hurts to see her so sick. We hoped and prayed that she would get better, but it is just not the Lord's will for her. We love her so very much and will miss her when she goes.
Rachel is doing very well. She now weighs 3 lbs 7oz. She is growing well every day. Her feeds have been increased more. She is almost to full feeds. The TPN has been decreased more and will be discontinued very soon. We are so proud of Rachel and the wonderful progress she has made. She definitely is behaving so she can come home with mommy and daddy sooner.
We are also so very proud of Haley. She is recovering very well from the surgery. Today the settings on her ventilator were decreased. The doctor seemed surprised to be able to make those changes on the vent seeing she had surgery only a couple of days ago. We hope she will be able to get fed again soon and get her TPN decreased.
