Kylee's First Outfit

Well, Natalie and I just got home from the hospital not too long ago and we spent a couple of hours with Kylee. The first thing Natalie did when we arrived at the hospital was to dress Kylee up in an outfit and put a bow in her hair....well....not really in her hair.....she just pretty much set it on her head.

Kylee wasn't too interested in feeding from a bottle when her 6:00 PM time rolled around so they just fed her through her nasal tube.  Right before Natalie held Kylee, we discovered a red and swollen area on her left bicep.  It was examined by the medical staff and they decided to remove her PICC (Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter) line.  A PICC line is similar to an IV; however, it is intended for long term use.  With this removed, the only "tubing" Kylee still has is her feeding tube.

We heard that Kylee will be receiving more milk starting tomorrow, but we aren't sure how much of an increase she will get.  Natalie held Kylee for an hour or so and it is getting harder and harder to pry them apart every night....
