Update and Pictures 8/22

Great boring update today! Karsie went up on her feeds to 6.5mL an hour and her TPN went down to 7.5mL an hour. She has had no more spit-ups (even though we are fairly sure she has a mild case of reflux). She is getting prilosec for the reflux and to help everything (food-wise) continue to move throuh her. Her breathing still looks good and her lungs are getting stronger. She is on CPAP for 6 hours each shift and nasal cannula 6 hours. Her patch looks good with minimal drainage and no new ripped stitches. We are praying for many more days of boring reports... and of course super fast skin growth so we can hold her and bring her home soon!
Karsie taking a little rest... so sweet!
Karsie got to listen to Kevin via a voice recording! She was a little fussy and when this was played, she relaxed and stayed calm for quite a while. She sure does love her daddy!
Nana got to have two visits today. She is Michelle's support person while Kevin is at home. This is nice because it means Michelle doesn't have to do the night visits alone.
Our little sleeping beauty!


  1. Oh wow I love her! I am missing her so much already and it's only been a day. I don't know how people in the military do it. She sleeps like I do, and also like she did in the womb.

  2. I've been following since her birth. It sure is nice to hear those boring reports and to see some fat on that little beauty of yours!

  3. she is SO precious! She melts my heart every time i look at her pics.
