Little baby Kason, my new grandson, was born on 3-20-22, which is two months early. Kason has a chromosome deletion which extremely rare, but matters were complicated by being born so early. He is a little fighter and has fought so hard from day 1 to be here. My daughter and son in-law are still at the Ronald McDonald House in Oklahoma City while he is being cared for. I am watching after their soon to be 8 year old daughter during this time. As you may know, bills don't stop coming and the world does not stop because we go through difficult times. My daughter is on maternity leave which will end soon, but son in-law is not getting paid while he is caring for his family. Times are tough for many right now, but if you can help in any way I know it would be greatly and sincerely appreciated. They are a young, hardworking family who are too humble and proud to ask for help when it is greatly needed.

8-8-2022 - Yesterday was such a beautiful day. As soon as London came into Kason’s room, Kason’s eyes instantly connected to Londons. He was so enamored with her, they had an immediate attachment. Before London left she said to me, “now I know why it’s hard for you to leave his room.” She is such a great big sister already & I can’t wait to watch their bond grow. 🌳 β˜€οΈ πŸ’§ 🌈 Literally had to fight tooth and nail for the past 2 months just to get NICU to approve London 15 minutes with her brother.

We are now learning of the next phase for Kason’s care, which involves the transition to home program. OU and the Bethany campuses have excellent programs, availability is the determining factor.

7-7-2022: Kason is recovering from his procedures, his wounds are healing well. He is getting used to not having the tube in his mouth, he still sometimes sucks like it’s still there. Feeding is going good, no vomiting or aspirations currently. Hopefully this will continue. His head ultrasound showed some changes in his brain, that could be possibly problematic but not a concern today. He will have a brain MRI, once his trach can be changed to an MRI appropriate tube.-- Jeffery Adams

7-6-2022: Kason took a pacifier continuously for the first time last night. Anyone that knows Kason at the hospital knows he hates anything that has to do with his mouth. This means, wiping off lips, oral care, and pacifiers. He has never been a fan. Which I think has to do with being intubated back and forth along with his deletion making it hard for him to accomplish the coordination many babies have right off the bat after birth. But, last night I tried a pacifier I got off of Amazon and he did great! Still trying to work on that sucking reflex and coordination so he can eventually take a bottle and work on swallowing easier. We are so proud of him! πŸ’› Lol look at the last pic, he is saying hi. -- Katie Adams

Kason’s sleep study showed severe obstruction, which is due to his severe lung disease. Tracheotomy will be the safest route for Kason’s health. Will hear from the pulmonologist to confirm the recommendation. Kason will have a combo surgery to limit intubation in the near future. Kason also had an eeg study which showed high probability of future seizures. --Jeffery Adams

The doctor now wants to consult the sleep specialist to see if he has obstructive apnea. Also consult ENT, and pulmonary to see if he may benefit from a trach. If so she would like the trach surgery to be done at the same time as the Gtube to limit multiple intubations. Jeffery Adams

We were 2 liters on his O2 yesterday, but I guess he was breathing harder last night and Dr decided to push him back up to 2.5 liters.

Yesterday he had an fluro exam of his kidneys due to his multiple UTI’s. During the exam they noticed his feeding tube was not in the appropriate position. They reposition it, the doc believes this may be the cause of blood in his GI tract. Today he is content and enjoying his fish tv. Jeffery Adams

5-27-2022 Kason has reached a major milestone. He is no longer on the ventilator, currently on high flow O2. The doctors are watching closely to see if his lungs can handle the change. There's still the option of oral feeding, but we need to know if he can handle high flow before placing a semi/permanent g/j tube. Tracheotomy seems less likely currently but Kason is the boss.

5-20-2022 - Update: Kason will need another blood transfusion, the team haven’t been able to place a iv yet. Hopefully today they will. He is also being treated for aspiration pneumonia. After a in-depth conversation with the team, they will schedule a care meeting with ENT, ped surgery, and other providers. Kason will hit 8lbs soon and is past his due date. He currently has a tube that transfers milk directly to his stomach, but it still allows moderate acid reflux. To correct it he may need a tube to place milk directly to his intestines. Also he may not come off the ventilator anytime soon, to get him home he may need a Tracheostomy. Hopefully these ailments will be addressed, so we can bring baby boy home safely.--Jeffery Adams

Hopefully in the next few weeks he can transition from the ventilator to cpap and finally room air. Feeding should follow, he may need a g-tube if he struggles with oral feeding. No one can predict his discharge, but hopefully he will be home in the next month or two. He enjoys his physical therapy, especially his massages. Lol --Jeffery Adams

4-26-2022 - Kason is still struggling breathing and maintaining safe O2/CO2 levels. His ventilation is extremely high for his age and weight. First plan of action is to consult ENT and get an upper GI endoscopy. If the scope shows no abnormalities, they will look deeper into his cardiovascular/pulmonary system. With Kason’s chromosome deletion and no other cases to review, we do not completely know what to expect or focus on. Genetic conditions usually effect neuro, cardiovascular, pulmonary, GI, and kidney systems. We all will learn with time.-- Jeffery Adams
