Kymani Has Made Huge Strides In The Past Two Days!
Weight gain: On July 10th, we found out that Kymani gained 100 grams overnight! That's the most she has gained in one night. She gained 10 more grams the next day, making her total weight this morning (July 11th) 2180 grams. That's 4 pounds and 13 ounces.
Feeding - Kymani met and exceeded all of her feeding goals!
BRADY Events - Kymani still has had zero of these since June 6th!
Newborn Screenings - July 10th and 11th were very busy, as Kymani was doing all of her routine newborn and discharge screenings. She had her second head ultrasound done, as well as her hearing screening. She also did the car seat test to make sure she stayed oxygenated the whole time. Rich and I also watched some routine newborn safety videos.
Guess Where Kymani Is Now?
Kymani passed this test with flying colors and is now HOME - no hospital monitors, no oxygen, no extra equipment of any kind. After such a long ordeal, it feel surreal, but is definitely a big welcomed relief. Kymani seems pretty happy about it too.
Nova was napping when we came in (she went home a day early with her big sisters because she was pretty done with the hospital and needed something familiar). When she woke up and saw Kymani she looked at me with a huge smile and shouted "Baby! Baby?" and then tried to rock her in the car seat.
Everyone else felt the same happiness, including the pets. Bo-Bo laid down by her car seat and Pinky rubbed against it. Velma sniffed at the car seat and then laid down. She got the seal of approval from them all.
The discharge procedure started yesterday and wasn't as short as we made it sound here. It was pretty exhausting, but we'll spare you all the details and leave you with the happy news, as we sign off to finally relax at home with our family.
