Kylin Michele Howe





She is here! Our little girl came into the world on January 17th at 4:36 p.m. She weighted 5 pounds 14 ounces and 19 inches long. What a great Birthday present she was for me! She came out with lots of sandy colored hair. It was a lot harder labor than with Mckay and lots more pushing since she was face up. As soon as she was born they took her to the NICU because I was only 34 1/2 weeks. She had an infection in her lungs and needed to be on a ventilator but, has been taken off now and she is breathing on her own. The antibiotics have been helping with the infection and she should be coming off them today. She is doing SO well and even has been able to try nursing and she has latched a couple times just not enough to really get any food. So I pump milk and they feed it to her through a tube in her nose. Hopefully in the next couple weeks she will catch on to nursing more. She is under the lights right now because she is a little jondous too. I will try and keep you all updated on how she is doing the days that I come home. I am boarding at the hospital right now so that I can be as close to Kylin as possible and be there for all her feedings. It is pretty tuff but, we are so blessed that she is doing so well. Thank you all for your fasting and your prayers.
