Day 27 Update

Kanyon has had a pretty relaxing day today. His oxygen level on the vent is low, so that is good. They have been using a machine to massage his lungs to help them open up and clear up. That seems to have helped a lot. His cultures all came back negative, but they're going to leave him on the antibiotics for several more days just to make sure. He's still eating like a champ and weighs a whopping 2 lbs. 2.7 oz. We're hoping this time on the vent will give him a chance to pack on a few more ounces. We left him tonight curled up on his tummy with his arms up by his head...very comfy!

I mentioned yesterday about the enlarged ventricle in his brain. I want to ask specific prayers for that. They do know that it is not draining the fluid out, so that is why it is enlarged. It could be because of a clot that has it stopped up..we don't know that for sure. But, we do know that we want that to open up and drain on it own so that they do not have to intervene. Please pray for that to heal and level out...we know that this is another chance for GOD to take care of Kanyon. They will measure his head twice a day to monitor the growth over the next several days, so we'll update you as they update us. Thank you so much.

Praise God that there is no infection! We pray that God will heal Kanyon and fix his ventricle. We are also praying for peace and strength for you and Kory. May He continue to hold all of you in His hands.

Jaymie and Kory,

Special prayers for special people in special times. I am absolutely amazed and grateful that the medical team can see the fluid now. I will pray for "natural", hand of God healing.

Love,

You have been in my prayers more than you know over the last month. Cole and I and our weekly Bible study are always praying for Kanyon. I love being able to keep up with his progress and know exactly what prayers he is needing! We love you so much!

Jaymie,
I haven't posted a comment before but I wanted to let you know there isn't a day that goes by that you and your family are not prayed for. I get on your blog everyday to check on the progress of little Kanyon. I just wanted to let you know you are in my thoughts and prayers everyday. Today especially I will be praying that God's hands be on that tiny baby and that he takes care of this. Keep strong.

Jaymie, Kory, & Kanyon,
I hadn't checked your blog for a little while. Today I read through the updates and I am so pleased to see Kanyon's progress! He is MILES ahead of where our son was at 27 days! You all continue to be in my thoughts and prayers!
Love, Summer
