My lil man is 12 days old.... he weighs 3 lbs and 15 ounces and he went from 3 liters on the nasal canula down to 2 and doing just fine with it =} hes up to 33 cc's every three hours and has no more ivs.... Hes doing great =]
It really bothers me tho... I was asking his nurse how he was doing and he said hes doing great exactly what hes supposed to he doing then he looked at me sad and said its just going to be a long road... I left almoat bawlng that last phrase made me sick... It always makes me feel like hes not going to be ok

Sounds like he's doing great! But NICU time is SUCH a rollercoaster. When my DD was there (born at 37w3d but had a birth defect so to the NICU she went) she'd have a great day only to have a horrible night (in addition to the birth defect she started having unrelated seizures so we NEVER knew what the day would bring since to this day we don't know WHY she had the seizures).



Stay strong, he's a fighter, you're a fighter. He's made it this far; think of all that you've BOTH gone thru to get to this point

awww hugs mama. I know the feeling. But the thing with preemies is they tend to amaze ya. And when they start making steps towards going home theres no stopping them. We went from IV's and feeding tube and isolette to no IVs, then no feeding tube, then no isolette. He was home four days after they told us we had a long way to go.
