Jaylie - Day 15

More good news! Jaylie is being fed breast milk now in really really small quantities - but is processing it. She's been on small quantities of breast milk for about 48 hours now and doing very well!

The Dr's have taken Jaylie off all the meds for the pulmonary hypertension and have given the ok on the heart, lung and cranial scans YAY YAY!

Jaylie has gained some weight (finally!) and now weights 650 grams ( 22.9 oz = 1lb 6.9 oz )! Woot woot!

They made me change Jaylie's diaper last night, yes made me, and I was surprised to experience she feels like a normal baby, just a bit smaller and a bit more fragile.

The Dr said Jaylie is doing really well, and that they are probably going to try and take her off the ventelator here in the next day or so! Can I get another Woot woot!

Jaylie has grown. I will get some more good pictures of her this week.

The Dr's have advised Jaylie is doing good, but we are not our of the woods by far yet. We still have a ways to go. The Dr's have said, the next set of challenages is going to be with feeding. The Dr's have said there will be ups and down's with feeding just due to being premature. Preemies like Jaylie with IUGR (Intrauterine Growth Restriction) tendency to have gut problems and digestive problems which makes feedings a challenge.

With Jaylie growing and Kristina and I being able to interact with her more it makes it harder to leave her at the hospital each day. Please pray for Kristina and I that God would help us with managing of our daily life's and our relationship with our baby girl Jaylie.

As always, thank you SO much for the pray and support, it works!

Nathan, Kristina and Jaylie


  1. Such great news! Glad she is finally taking milk and will pray it goes and stays down well. We've only been doing this for a week now, and it is hard!! I am lucky to have Kristina to share stories and ask questions with. Will keep the prayers coming for the three of you. HUGS!

  2. Thank you! Yes please keep calling Kristina. She needs the support more than I. This is really tough for her all around.
