Update on Kinsley
Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers that have been sent on Kinsley's behalf. She has been diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. Right now they are not sure if she was born with no thyroid glad or if it just isn't working. They started her on medication in which she will be on the rest of her life. She still isn't gaining weight and has lost a little over a pound since birth, but as of yesterday, she hasn't lost either so that's good. We saw the Endocrinologist for the first time yesterday and she assured us that she should have no brain damage or developmental delays because they caught it so quickly. She also assured us that she should live a normal life, as long as she has her medicine because her brain can not tell the difference between the medicine and they hormone her thyroid should produce. We will make weekly visits to the Endocrinologist and have weekly blood work until her levels are where they should be. God is good and I am so thankful that her disease can be treated.I know he is watching over my baby girl. She has been feeding better over the past 24 hours so that is an improvement. She has also been awake a little more. Please keep my sweet baby girl in your thoughts and prayers, as well as our family.
