Jaylie - Day 82 week 39 1/7

This week was better than last week for the Jaylie. Jaylie is doing a lot better than last week. Her stomach swelling is all pretty much gone, yay!

Jaylie is tolerating her feeds really well, but is not putting on weight and actually losing weight (keep in mind, Jaylie is only using her upper digestive track to process feeds due to the ileostomy surgery ). Jaylie is down to 1600 grams (3lbs 8.3oz). Becaus of this weight loss, the doctors have put Jaylie on a predigested formula to hopefully help Jaylie start putting on weight. Hopefully Jaylie will start to put on weight with this new formula.

Other than the weight issues (which is a serious issue) Jaylie is doing well! We are able to hold and interact with Jaylie which is awesome!

The week before last was a tough week for us. Jaylie's surgery and the Doctors setting expectations with us as to what to expect regarding Jaylie's care after we get her home were taxing events to process and recover from. Kristina and I are still recovering from those events.

Jaylie's prayer requests:
Intestinal development
Overall development and grow

As always, Thank you SO much for your prayer and support! We really appreciate it!

Nathan, Kristina and Jaylie
