Well Nora did great with her Pedialyte yesterday and is now moving on to breast milk this morning! It will take a bit of time to see if she can absorb anything and the doctors say the chances are very small but there are always miracles. I think we will probably be going to Shands early next week and hopefully on to Miami for a transplant. It looks like it may be a long road but we are holding it together and Nora is very stable right now so we couldn’t ask for much more. Thanks for all of your support and prayers.

Montana, Sarah and Nora

Until today Nora has not eaten anything orally nor had anything go through her stomach and intestines. Today she was fed 5 ml of Pedialyte every 6 hours. She said Yum Yum and drank it down!

Hey Everyone!

I wanted to give everyone an update on our little miracle Nora. They decided to do the tests last night instead of today and found NO leaks, YAY!, and so today they hope to try and feed her and see if her small intestine can absorb any of the food. We are not out of the woods yet but our strong little girl is doing great and is now off all pain meds and all the tubes were removed from her face so she is feeling much better and is looking healthier everyday. We really appreciate all the love and support you have all given us through this trying time and know that all of the positive energy that has been sent our way has helped our Nora be as strong as she is. I will send another update on our little miracle once we see how she does with feeding, hopefully later today. Thanks again for your prayers and love.

Nora is exceeding the doctors expectations and showing us what a strong little sweetie she is. She has been taken off of oxygen and her stomach drain removed. Now Nora is breathing completely on her own and without any tubes in her pretty little face. The doctors ran a GI test to make sure there are no leaks from Nora’s surgery where her small intestines were reconnected to her large intestines. Everything looks good!

This is the email we sent out when Nora was born. I thought I would archive all these on the blog as well since it helps even us keep things straight.

Hi Everyone,

For anyone who does not know we had Nora Kaylee Thomas via emergency cesarean on 4/27/07. She was 7 pounds 5 ounces and is a beautiful little girl but her small intestine had gotten kinked and they had to do surgery right after birth and removed 95% of it. The small intestine is very important because it is what absorbs all of our food and nutrients. Doctors say the 5% she has left is probably not enough to absorb so we will most likely need a transplant but there are always miracles. At this point Nora is very stable and we finally got to hold her yesterday which was great and a wonderful day but tomorrow we have to put her through more test to see if the surgery worked and if she can absorb anything and to make sure there are no leaks or complications from the surgery. Tomorrow will be a very big day in regards to what will happen next so we could use everyone’s positive thoughts, prayers and love sent our way. Please keep her in your thoughts and think positively that her little intestine will just suck up the nutrients and she will be a miracle baby like we know she is.

We love you all and thank you for your on going support and prayers through all of this. It is what has enabled us to keep going and staying so positive through this hard time.

Love,

Montana, Sarah and Nora
