[Update 4] 1 Month Old Today!

OP, I just found and am now avidly following your story. My son was in the NICU from day 2-32 of life, and in the hospital in general MANY times in his short 2.5 years, but not for being premature. He was full term, only five days early. Still, his condition was very severe and everything moved so quickly. One minute we’re laughing and giddy from finally being in labor and the next every blood vessel in my face had ruptured from crying so hard. That first week was literally gut wrenching.

I was just telling my wife about your post, and it's almost exactly how we are. My wife and I can speak the lingo now and know what his numbers mean at any given time. We've even gotten pretty good at reading the ventilator settings.

My son spent his first two months in the NICU. I couldn’t put it better.

Thank you for sharing these kind words. I’m sorry for your loss. Would you mind sharing what your son’s condition was?

That's very encouraging news!!! Stay in this fight with your little man, he needs both his parents through this! In a year or so, you'll look back at this and you'll appreciate that he's throwing his toys all over the floor and flinging his spaghetti everywhere.

Was he full term or preterm?


Image
Lonogg

He was born at 25 weeks and 5 days, but he was growth restricted so he was even small for that age. You can check out the full story in my first post about him. It's pretty crazy that he made it.
