Jaylie - Day 64 - week 36 4/7

Jaylie didn't have a good day today :(. Jaylie started to swell back up again so the Dr's decided they needed to stop feeding her breast milk and schedule the contrast enema to watch the fluidity flow through Jaylie's lower bowel. After the Dr's do the lower bowel contrast testing they will mostlikely do an upper bowel contrast test where the Dr's watch the flow of fluid through the bowel looking for any blockage or slowing. These tests will be done first thing in the morning with the results being available within an hour or so after the completion of the tests.

Jaylie had a bunch of Destats and Bradies (where her heart rate and oxygen levels drop sharply then rise back up) today. These Destats and Bradies tell the Dr's and nurses Jaylie isn't doing well and is working hard just to keep herself oxygenated and her heart rate up. The Dr's and nurses are keeping a vigilant eye on Jaylie at the moment. If Jaylie continues to Destat and Brady the Dr's will mostlikey put Jaylie back on the ventilator.

We will keep you posted as to how Jaylie is doing and how the test go tomorrow.

As always, thank you SO much for your prayers and support!

Nathan, Kristina & Jaylie
