Hello. It's been a long time. My little Kayson just celebrated his first birthday. Take a look at his picture. It's hard to believe it's been a year. Wow.... What a year.

Hi everyone. It's been awhile since I have been able to update. Kayson now weighs 17 lbs and 12 oz!!!!! Isn't that amazing? Sure can't tell he is a preemie now. We went for our 6 mth checkup and was referred to the ear nose and throat Dr. for a follow up hearing test and about a seal sounding cough that he has had since about 3 months. The pediatrician has been watching it and was thinking it was scarred tissue due to him being tubed for the vent. in the NICU. Unfortunately the ENT jumped on it and said no way!!! So we are scheduled for a scope at Lebonheur to find out what's going on. Please pray that it is something minor. This is hard for me b/c I don't like the idea of him being put to sleep. It just scares me. I know they do it every day but it's still scary. Will update when we find out more.

This picture was taken at my brother David's wedding. Kayson is really losing his baby hair. He had so much pretty black hair when he was born and now it's gone bye bye. He is such a little sweetie. I am so blessed to have two wonderful, healthy children. Thank you Jesus!!

Hi everyone. I know it's been awhile. Kayson is doing absolutely wonderful. He weighs 13 lbs and 11 ounces the last time we were at the Dr.
Lillie Grace is just a little mother and loves him so much. We had a very tough beginning thanks to colic and acid reflux but thank the Good Lord for Zantac and colic drops. We are now doing A ok. I will send new pics soon. Some days he looks like Daddy and some days he favors sister. Lillie Grace couldn't ever make her mind either who she was going to look like until she got about 6 mths old. Guess he's doing the same thing. Stay tuned for new pictures...................

Kayson is HOME!!!

Lesley, Keith and Lillie Grace are welcoming baby Kayson home today! God is GOOD! The hospital released him earlier today and he is to go straight home and stay unless he has a scheduled doctor's appointment. He has several upcoming appointments with a cardioligist, nephrologist, eye and hearing tests etc just to make sure he is on track. I will post pictures at a later time. Les and Keith feel truly blessed to have their baby home. Visitors are limited so please call instead of dropping by -PER DOCTOR'S ORDERS!

Please pray to keep everyone healthy in the household, "no germs allowed!" :)

Just thought I'd update a little on Kayson...He's still in the step down unit at the hospital and is progressing very well. He's actually ready to come home but his blood pressure is keeping him in the hospital. The high blood pressure is such a mystery! They've had heart, brain and kidney specialists in to evaluate and so far they cannot find the cause of the problem. Doctors are trying to regulate his blood pressure so he can indeed come home.
As of today, Les said that they have called in a kidney specialist one more time to rule out any kidney problems. Please pray that the blood pressure will remain back to normal and there are no anomolies with the kidneys.

Step Down!

Kayson has progressed so well that he has been moved down to the "step down" unit. This is for the preemies that are no longer as critical. He is now taking his bottles during the day and the feeding tube at night. If they can get him to drink bottle only, the faster he can come home.

The only problem that has risen is that Kayson apparently has high blood pressure. The Doctors have performed the necessary tests on brain, heart and kidney to rule out any source of the pressure problem. Thankfully all tests came back normal which is such a BLESSING! Kayson will just remain on medication to control his blood pressure as needed.
