May 4th Update

update from Kayla's grandma...

Well our little Kayla is still in the hospital, she still can not keep any food or liquids down the doctors think they will keep her a few more days. Good news is all of her levels and blood tests are very good, her blood pressure is a little low and she has lost a 1 pound, apparently the 7th day after chemo is when her levels and counts will start to drop. They started her on some sort of nutritional drip that will feed her all kinds of good stuff tonight. Great-Grandma Shirley is staying at the hospital with her tonight. I went back to work today and was miserable all day, all I did was think of her. I went to hospital this evening and spent about 3 hours with her. She also did really well with physical therapy today and actually walked a little without her walker. The nurses gave her a doll with a central line so that Kayla could learn to give the baby doll her med's and flush her line just like we will have to do with her, she still says she wants to be a doctor when she grows up.

Thanks again for all the prayers, we appreciate it so much!!!!!

  5. with no posts, I am beginning to worry. I hope you are all doing ok and that Kayla is doing great!

    Please keep us updated, as we need to know what to currently be praying for.

    Love you Kayla!!

  6. we get updates from the grandma but she hasnt updated us for a while. I heard kayla was home and doing well.

  7. Not to be mean, but Grandma is not sending updates. She was never told that her updates were intended for public use. We wish to keep Kayla health private. Please respect this. Kayla is young and is may give her problems is life later on to have the public involved. We wish that no one donated money or items. The grandparents are taking care of everything.

    Thank you very much,

    Again, This is not to be mean. Kayla is doing great.
