Even though I just did a post below from last week (i'm a little behind), I thought I'd give you all an update on Jadyn is doing this week. Good news or bad news our blog is a good way to keep everyone updated and a good way for me to document what she is going through.

This has been a rough week for Jadyn. They think that she may have some sort of virus or infection but have not been able to determine what exactly is going on. It started out as diarrhea and now 3 days later she is off her tube feedings, has two IV sites, is on antibiotics, and has a tube to empty her stomach. They have had to give her some blood also. They continue to do more tests on her and we are waiting for more results. She is starting to do a little bit better and we hope that she continues to get over this bump in the road. I can't wait to have my old Jadyn back. We always hear that it is a rollercoaster ride in the NICU but haven't experienced it until now. I feel like she just took 5 steps backwards. On top of all that I woke up with a very mild runny nose, so I will be spending my time at home until I know for sure that I am not sick. It is scary how easily little preemies can catch something. I am so paranoid. I hope I can visit her soon. It is so hard to be away from her.

Well that is my update for now. No pictures this week (look at my last post for the latest). We continue to pray for her and know she will be able to overcome this soon. It is crazy to think that she is already 5 weeks old today! Thanks for everyones continued prayers and support.

I'm so sorry to hear that she's been sick and that you may be coming down with something too! I hope she can bounce back soon and get over this little bug so she can get home to you soon! The halloween pictures are cute- that's cool that they do that. She looks so cute with little clothes on! I hope you can start using some of those things we gave you. We're keeping you all in our prayers that you can get over this little bump in the road and continue to get better. Love you and it was so good to see you!
