Introducing Kaylee Lynn...... Photos & preemie update.....

Hello ladies,

I havn't been online in a few weeks & thought i'd drop in for an update.  On Friday
January 16th my water broke.  I was only 31 weeks & 6 days pregnant.  I was taken by ambulance to St. Joe's hospital in Milwaukee where they specialize in preemies.  I stayed there on bedrest for 2 weeks. 

On January 31st I was induced, but had a LONG labor & delivered Kaylee Lynn on February 1st @9:37p.m.  She was 5lbs. 1oz.  17 & 3/4 inches long.  She has been doing well.  I was released from the hospital on Tuesday, but Kaylee will be staying at the hospital for 10-14 more days.  She is being treated for high levels of billy ruben under a light therapy lamp.  She is breathing on her own now & is trying to bottle feed. 

Please keep us & Kaylee in your prayers.  We have a long commute from home to the hospital & our other 2 children are REALLY sick right now.  We are a bit short on cash, because my husband wasn't able to work for the 2 weeks that I was on bedrest at the hospital.  We still have a long road, but Kaylee's road is much longer.  Please pray for her quick recovery!

On a lighter note: Here are some photos....
