Jaylie - Day 63 - week 36 3/7

Good news! On Monday, the Dr's decided the extra tests they talked about potentially doing were not necessary and that Jaylie could start being fed breast milk again, yay (in my previous post I talk about the tests the Dr's did and potential tests they were talking about doing)!

Jaylie is now back on a regular feeding schedule and is being monitored closely for excess swelling. If the excess swelling starts to pop back up again, the Dr's with adjust the method of feeding and reevaluate as to whether additional tests and/or procedures are needed. Right now the Dr's are delicately balancing Jaylie's feedings, lung development, and stomach distention (swelling) due to the air Jaylie is taking while on vapotherm (vapother is used to help with lung development). It takes true precision to be able to administer the correct levels of support to help Jaylie grow and develop naturally without interfering with development or cause harm. We are thankful and blessed Jaylie is at Swedish, one of the best Neonatal care facilities in our state.

Jaylie is now 1361 grams = 3lbs! We've hit the 3lb mark, yay!

As always, thank you SO much for your support!

Nathan, Kristina & Jaylie
