Jaylie - Day 26 - Week 31 2/7

Today's blog isn't a long blog but worth blogging about :).

Yesterday, the Dr's decided to take Jaylie off of cpap and put her back on vapotherm! If you remember, vapotherm is the first therapy the Dr's put Jaylie on the very first time they took her off the ventilator just days after she was born. When I first heard this news I was sort of thinking they probably took Jaylie off of cpap because they were having a problem with the cpap or something. I was shocked to find out the reason the Dr's chose to take Jaylie off of cpap was because she had improved so much they felt it was time to take her off cpap. I did a double take when the nurse first said the reason the Dr took Jaylie off cpap was due to Jaylie being ready to move to the next step. If you recall, the nurses advised us Jayie would most-likely be on cpap for several weeks and possibly +6 weeks. After 1 week they have taken Jaylie of cpap! That is amazing!

On top of the cpap being taken off, Jaylie was wide awake, very calm, eye's wide open and moving around when we went to visit with her yesterday. It was wonderful to see her peaceful, awake and happy with the breathing apparatuses off of her! Jaylie definitely likes being free of all the breathing stuff :)

Yesterday was a major milestone for Jayile. The nurses again are amazed with her progress -- like jaw dropping amazement...

Well, just wanted to let you all know your prayer and support is paying off and well appreciated!

Thank you SO much!

Nathan, Kristina and Jaylie
