FC: Prayers for KyLee

1: Most holy Apostle, St. Jude, friend of Jesus, I place KyLee Dawn Tracy in your care at this difficult time. Pray for her and her parents, Sean and Stephanie; help them know that they need not face their troubles alone. Please join them in their need, asking God to send them consolation in their sorrow, courage in their fear, and healing in the midst of their suffering. Ask our loving God to fill them with the grace to accept whatever may lie ahead for them and their loved ones, and to strengthen their faith in God's healing power. Thank you, St. Jude, for the promise of hope you hold out to all who believe, and inspire them to give the gift of hope to others as it has been given to them. Amen.

2: KyLee Dawn Tracy was born on the 23rd of February in the year 2010 to proud parents, Sean and Stephanie. She was a tiny princess, weighing just 5lbs 4 oz and was 17.25 inches long. She was a beautiful little angel with a head full of Daddy's curl blonde hair, and Mommy's nose. She entered a world where she was loved by many. When the doctors informed her parents that baby KyLee had Persistant Pulminary Hypertension for Newborns the whole world got busy praying. This book documents baby KyLee's progress as she fights to win the battle over her PPHN. It also holds a collection of warm thoughts and prayers that are being sent to the Tracy family from family, friends, and strangers, as people from all over come together to help in KyLee's fight.

5: Update for those who haven't heard. Baby KyLee was submitted to a ICU for further testing. They originally thought that she had a collapsed lung but upon further investigation by a very good doctor discovered it was a air bubble that escaped her lung at birth which was causing her breathing issues. They are still looking into why she is bruising and think it is a blood disorder or something. ~ Daddy | May Mary, our Mother, wrap Her arms around Kylee while Stephanie is still at the other hospital. May God, give your entire family comfort and peace during this time of "trial"---the uncertainty of what is medically going on, and the having to be apart from each other at the very beginning of family life.

44: Our little angel is growing up so fast... wish you could stay little forever | March 5 2010 10 day birthday

45: Cute as a button | Please tell her Aunt Robin loves her!!! ~ Great Aunt Robin, Fife, WA | Please tell her her Auntie JoNell loves her more... ~ Great Aunt JoNell, Port Orchard, WA | I will let her know everyone sends their loves! :) lol ~Mommy | Yes, Stephanie, please tell her that everyone sends their love (but whisper in her ear that I love her the most). ~Great Aunt Robin | Yes, do whisper that... only make clear that the "I" in that statement refers to Auntie JoNell. hee hee hee

47: Sean -- I know they are hard to see, but please don't let the tubes and wires get you down. LOVE those tubes and wires...I know I sure do. When you are looking at your sweet angel, take a good long look at those tubes and wires, and then say THANK YOU to them. If not for each of them, your little girl would not be h...ere. Those tubes and wires have kept that darling angel here for you. Thank God for every one of them, and Thank God for the medical team that has used them so effectively. Those tubes and wires are her lifeline, and I will always appreciate them, long after they are a part of her past. ~Great Aunt JoNell Port Orchard, WA

My chunky monkey! :) She will be getting weighed again tonight, she has also gained 2 oz! :D Little Miss is GROWING!!! :D :D She is doing really good. I am so proud of her. ~Mommy | Daddy changed KyLees diaper for the 1st time tonight! :)) He did a excellent job! ;) It was soooo cute watching him lol. She ended up having to have the enula put back on because her numbers were descending a little bit, it is however on the lowest setting. Other than that, she is doing great! She got weighed and she has gained an ounce... ~Mommy | Tell Sean to get the gun ready for all the teenage boys coming to door in 16 years. ~ Linda Battleground, WA | She looks perfect ~Taylor Vancouver, WA

50: KyLee with My Grandma Becky | The nasal cannula that used to provide a bit of assistance w/her breathing. It had been removed earlier in the day, but after a busy day of visitors and handling, she was a little stressed and needed some help...not much...just a little. The picture today, when she was all wrapped up in the blanket is priceless! A definite favorite -- I l love having a clear view of her whole precious face! ~Great Aunt JoNell, Port Orchard, WA | well last night i got to hold that precious bundle of joy.. my heart sank with every breathe she took. yep im hooked line and sinker..

52: March 7 2010 12 Day Birthday

53: KyLee got upset with her feeding tube today lol, she tried pulling it out twice. I had to unwrap her hand from it. She is doing very well :) They incresed her feeding to 44, and are going to increase it again! ~Mommy

54: MARCH 8 2010 | Getting ready to go see KyLee Dawn :) :) :( Daddy isnt feeling well so he is going to stay home this trip. Poor baby. If feeling better tonight he will go in and visit. :) ------ I got to give our daughter a bath tonight! :D It was soo much fun! I enjoyed every second! I do have her cry on sound so here in a few after the pictures are posted I will post her crying, SHE IS SO DARN CUTE! I love my life ITS PERFECT!She was also weighed tonight before her bath :) She weighs 5lbs 10oz! :D ~Mommy

55: BATH TIME | 13 DAY BIRTHDAY Mommy Gives Ky a Bath!

59: She is doing good, she has her swallow test today at 1:30 or so. Gonna call here in a little bit to see how that went, she is also getting the rest of her IVS ... See Moreremoved! Yay KyLee! :) The only thing she will have attached to her is her monitors, feeding tube, and nasal canula. She still sleeps bunches. Everytime we go in there little cutie is PASSED OUT! She mannages to wake up while being messed with and gets all fussy with whoever is distubring her beauty sleep! :P After she gets put into my arms she falls right back to sleep lol. They did another brain ultrasound today, but the nurse didnt know of hand how that went. So when we call or go visit we will have full complelte update which will be NICE :D ~Mommy Sounds like she's doing really really well. :) I'm very proud of her accomplishments. She's so strong for being so little. & that's normal that she sleeps, she'll do that for a while (til she's atleast a few months old) ENJOY IT! because then they grow up and run around and get into shit. Haha Have they said anymore on when she might come home? ~Kimberly Lol speaking of the sleeping..While talking to her today I asked if she was gonna switch when she came home with the whole sleeping thing and she gave me a big smile.. This girl is trying to let us know whos boss EARLY LOL... They actually really haven't discussed with us when she will be able to come home, just have been told it will be awhile, and that as soon as she learns how to feed off a bottle that will determine she goes home lol. ~Mommy

60: March 9 2010 TWO WEEKS OLD | AW well that's some good news! & I hope the brace works for her hips. Poor baby, she's a toughie though Momma. Keep your head up!! xox | So sorry to hear that, I will little KyLee in my prayers. ~Linda Battleground, WA | I will keep praying for you guys. Don't worry too much I know a couple of children now who when they were babies had similar issue with hips and they run, jump, climb without any help now :D ~Nickie Portland. OR | I am praying too! Hang in there sweetie, I wish you were closer! ~Linette Republic, WA | Yes, isn't it? And, Mike too. He loves hearing about KyLee. ~Great Aunt Margaret Lapeer, MI | I'm also o.k. with the brace; I've actually known more than one baby who had to be braced. As knock kneed as I am I wonder if I should have had them?! : O It's just that KyLee has so many additional things she is dealing with it seems like more of a "burden" than it should otherwise be. In light of what she has gone through already, the bracing seems almost miniscule. My BIG one now is "swallow"!! ~Great Aunt JoNell Port Orchard, WA

61: Went in to visit KyLee tonight. She has been given another struggle to deal with. On the ultrasound yesterday it showed that her hips are displaced. So tonight the doctors put a brace on her. It has wraps around each foot going up to her hips with straps on each side going over her shoulders. It prevents her from straightening out her legs to try to put her hips back in place.No pictures tonight. Just some quiet time with her. Tomorrow Sean was to give her a bath but that will now just be a sponge bath. Other than that, she is doing fine. Still doing well with no cannula, so she is breathing entirely on her own. Yay. And today the speech therapist was able to get her to swallow and feed a tiny tiny tiny bit from a bottle. They are going to attempt bottle feeding her 3X a day starting tomorrow. ~Grandma Marita | The poor little thing. I feel so bad for her!!!! I'll keep her in my prayers. ~Deanna Woonsocket, RI | :-( about no pictures.... but I'm okay with the brace. Not "okay" but you know... it's a good thing it's been caught early and will probably be a non-issue relatively soon. Gott a keep looking on that bright side!! VERY PLEASED that the therapist was able to get her to swallow; means it's a muscle development issue that should resolve, right? Sean may well be okay starting on \ sponge bath! He gets to ease into it. Amazing how much I can love someone I've never met! ~ Great Aunt JoNell Port Orchard, WA

62: March 10 2010 15 days old

63: Just got back from seeing KyLee :) She is doing so good! They moved her to the other side of NICU because of how stable she is. I had no idea she was moved until I got there and seen no baby in the bed, lol. She was soo talkative tonight :) ~Mommy | Her ability to swallow will be determining when she can go home. Right now it is a struggle for her. They were able to get her to swallow 2ml (I think) yesterday but at each of her feedings she is getting 48 ml so you can see she has a long way to go. They are attempting to bottle feed her 3x a day and she does have a pacifier to help build the sucking reflex. ~Grandma Marita | Wonderful!!! What a beautiful baby!!! I am so glad she is doing better.:<) ~ Cherie | So our little KyLee was moved out of the NICU today! Awesome, simply awesome! ~Cousin Richelle Port Orchard, WA | isnt that amazing!! o my gosh ~Cousin Elena Port Orchard, WA

65: Talk about a heart attack. Steph and I went in to visit KyLee tonight and she wasn't there. We walked back to her space in NICU and her little bed was empty. There was a new nurse at the nurses' station and she noticed the shocked look on our faces and asked if we were looking someone. Anyway, they had moved KyLee ...to the other side of the NICU where the not so critical babies are. But, whew, for just a second. ~Grandma Marita | Major like! Not that you had a near myocardial event, but being downgraded is huge for her!! ~Cousin Richelle Port Orchard, WA | Major like! Not that you had a near myocardial event, but being downgraded is huge for her!! ~Diane Madison, WI | Big Step, moving out of NICU!!! But man! I bet your hearts hit the floor. They really oughta call parents when they do that! ~Great Aunt JoNell Port Orchard, WA

66: March 11 2010 16 Days Old | Daddy is back holding KyLee :) i love them so much! KyLee now weighs 6 lbs 1 oz! :) ~Mommy | Our granddaughter has endured so many things in her 1st 2 weeks of life and she has made us to be stronger as a family and to be stronger in life.. this baby is going to loved by so many we thank you all for your prayers.. little KyLee has a long road ahead and we are all here to wacth her grow in so may ways her paren...ts are strong and get stronger by the minute with the news they get.. i wish my daughter and son in law love, happeniss. and wisdom.. once again than you all.. from our familes to yours love ~Grandma Becky | luv bug...she is soooo pretty ~Cheryl Yakima, WA | She has, indeed, been a gift to many. So many people who don't even know her have been inspired by her story, her strength, and by God's generosity. This is a special child. ~Great Aunt JoNell Port Orchard, WA

67: Just got back from the hospital and visiting KyLee. Sean held her for awhile and then he and Steph had to change her diaper. Guess she wasn't quite done with her business when they started cuz they ended up going through three diapers. hehe. She was able to swallow 7cc today from a bottle. Yesterday it was only 2cc, so she is progressing on that. Yea ~Grandma Marita | Progress is a beautiful thing. Our little Brendan just celebrated his 1 year anniversary since his open heart surgery. Every day is milestone! Keep the faith! Our prayers are with your little angel. ~Todd | wonderful news! she's getting stronger every day, it sounds like! ~Maria Elgin, IL

73: while changing KyLees diaper tonight she peeed on Daddy........HEHE! She also weighs 6 lbs 5 oz now :) It is SUPER hard to change this little tiny bum when shes all trapped with that harness thing! Lol We went through 3 diapers.. she wasn't quite finished when we were changing her lol. ~Mommy | What a good girl, every little girl should pee on daddy once, lol. I'm glad things are finally going better. love seeing pics and videos. ~Deanna Woonsocket, RI

77: Im so glad that grandma Marita got to hold our granddaughter... ~Grandma Becky | 3 Beautiful Generations! Grandma Marita, Daddy Sean and Baby KyLee

78: Went in to visit KyLee last night. Sean and Stephanie thought it would be a great idea to have Grandma change her diaper. You know, it takes both of them to change her diaper, why they thought Grandma could do it herself was beyond me. Her little harness makes it quite difficult for one person to change the diaper. ...Long story short, Grandma got poop on the harness, sheesh.... | ...But the good news is that over 30 minutes yesterday she was able to drink 40cc from a bottle. The nurse said they are only supposed to spend 10 minutes trying with the bottle but she had nothing going on so she spent the extra time with KyLee. ~Grandma Marita

79: "Mothers hold their children's hands for a while - their hearts forever." | Baby KyLee with Mommy & Grandma Becky at 3 weeks old March 16 2010 | Glad to hear she's doing well..She's a fighter for sure! ~Kris Clackamas OR | thats good im glad she is doing good ~Kimberly
