Lots Of News Again! This Time It's Bigger!
So, what does Kymani do with that news? She pulls the tube out on her own once she has nippled 73%. Because it was so close and she was doing so well, everyone agreed to go ahead see what she did and then put the tube back in if necessary. She decided to be an overachiever and nipple at 100%.
So, we are getting very close to going home. She now has a high and low range of what she should eat, with a total goal per 12 hour period. She has been meeting that. So, if she continues to meet that goal for at least two days, has no more BRADYs for five days in a row (it's been 3 days now), and shows a good increase in weight, then the earliest she could go home is Tuesday.
But we aren't going to get a specific date in mind because remember, preemies can go up and down all the time. If it goes backward, it doesn't mean she isn't doing good. It simply means she is being a normal preemie. She is already way ahead.
Again, to go home, she must be consistently meeting her feeding goals for at least two days in a row, show consistent weight gain for at least two days in a row, and have zero BRADYs 5 days in a row.
We thank those of you who have been following along, praying, meditating, sending happy vibes, casting white spells, lighting candles, or anything that is positive toward Kymani meeting her goals to go home. One of us is religious and one is not. But we both agree that all positive energy is good.
