I am happy to report some REALLY REALLY good news about Peyton. She is off the bilirubin light ANDDDD she is coming off the ventilator this afternoon!!!!!! So now she can see since she doesn’t have the goggles on for the light, she can breath on her own, she can make little baby noises since the vent tubes not down her throat, ANNDDD I can hold her allll the timeeeee whenever I want!!!!!!!!!!!
It’s been 6 days since my world turned upside down and for the first time in those 6 days I can’t stop smiling. I’m home spending quality time with my favorite little guy, Peyton’s improving and I get to take him to see her tomorrow!!!
The doctors talked about possibly introducing her to food in the next day or two “she’s been being fed nutrients through a picc line” and depending on how that goes and how long it takes her belly to adjust will depend on when we get to take her home. At this point, I’m not even worried about that, I’m just enjoying every minute of the current progress she has made thus far!!!!!
Peyton is by far the strongest toughest baby I have ever seen in my life!! Three days ago I thought there was a chance I wouldn’t be able to bring her home because I didn’t think she would survive and now in three short days she has pulled through tremendously!!!
Thinking about all the things she has gone through already in her 6 short days of life is both heartbreaking and amazing!!!
Tomorrow I’m bringing Radek to meet her and I CANNOT WAIT!!!! I’ve been talking about her to him since I found out I was pregnant with her trying to get him prepared. I even bought him a little doll that we named Peyton to get him ready for his big brother duties and as you can see from the pictures below I think he’s going to do great!!!
I’m hoping he can avoid using her as a jump for his monster trucks at least for the first couple weeks
