Ok so I’m an ICU (adults, not pediatrics) nurse and I get SO excited when you provide updates about your son. I have followed your story from Day 1. Your son is making waves and touching hearts of people he will never meet. Please know you have a whole unit of ICU nurses, critical care physicians, respiratory therapists, nurse assistants, housekeeping staff, and unit secretaries cheering your family on! Sending love and good vibes from the East coast.

Hello everyone! It's been another really good week. Our little guy is getting bigger everyday still. This week he got some steroids that have tremendously helped his lungs. They've been able to lower his ventilator settings quite a bit and plan to move him to the CPAP machine pretty soon.

Hi there, OP’s wife and mom to the cutie in the picture here. Thank you for checking in on us! We’re hanging in there with everything. It’s hard because of how long he’s been in and how much longer he still has to go but everything is remedied when we get to hold our little butternut. Please keep the prayers and/or well wishes coming for our strong boy!


Image

Hahahaha yep, "still fucking the odds". my wife captured it all really well, and we are hanging in there. Both of us have struggled some with going to the hospital everyday, and the constant fear of bad news. We're making it through and finding time to go to dinner and keep close through it all.

I tried to look back at OP's other posts, can anyone tell me how old(gestational age) baby was when born? I thought I read 5 months, but am curious to know actual weeks&days. Im a nicu nurse and love seeing these stories! TIA

25+5 OP said in a previous post, but IUGR and only 410g.


Image

Yep, the guy below got it right. He was 25 weeks and 5 days, and he was growth restricted so he was only 14.4 ounces which is small for that age. Sorry it took so long to get back to ya!
