update about jaidyn Damien*Dex*Jaidyn's Momma 18 kids; Pennsylvania 1519 posts6th Mar '13
so when she was 2 weeks she got rsv. She was admitted because she was born at 35 weeks and was a preemie. We sent 12 days at our local hospital but she wasn't getting better. They had her on oxygen because her stats would dip down into the low 80s. I talked to my husband and the nurses who were taking care of her and we all agreed she needed to come to Pittsburgh to children's hospital. We have been here since Monday. She has been off the oxygen for 24 hours with great oxygen levels. She is eating very well. Taking in 3 to 4 ounces every 3 to 4 hours. She went from 5lbs 8oz at birth to 7lbs 1oz now. Its crazy she will be 1 month tomorrow and her due date isn't til the 14th. If everything still is good we get to come home tomorrow. With her everything seems to happen on Thursdays. That's when I would turn to another week while pregnant. I had all my doc appointments then. She was born on Thursday and she was admitted to the hospital Thursday morning and hopefully will be leaving thursday.

Quoting Asher and Haddie's Mommy:" What a relief! I'm sure you've been completely through the ringer, mama! "
I tried my hardest not to have a melt down but it didn't work. I am mentally and physically drained. Thankfully my parents are going to watch baby girl and my son Friday night so my husband and I can go celebrate my friends birthday. Def need some fun time.
