Luke broke 5 LBs!!!

<t>What a huge milestone for us! The switch to formula has made such a huge difference for us. He's gained weight, he's more alert, he's tracking with his eyes, and generally acting like a "normal" newborn, finally, after 11 weeks (3 weeks adj)! Finally, we can let our breath out, so to speak. I rea...

Update on Luke

<t>Well, we were discharged this morning - thanks to all who read and responded to my post yesterday. His final diagnosis is milk protein allergy and severe anemia as well as poor weight gain. He's like a different baby - already gained about 10 oz in 4 days, he's more alert than he's been since he'...

Lucas comes home!

<r>This is the best message I have ever written. . . our baby boy is home! After last week being torture, on Saturday the doctor said he would be ready to go home on Monday, Halloween! We held our breath all weekend (while running like crazy to get everything ready) and sure enough, Monday morning t...

What a difference a day makes . . .

<t>Yesterday we were so excited and hopeful - Luke had a great weekend, nippled all of his feedings and was in an open crib and holding his temp. He's been gaining about an ounce a day and was up to 4lbs 2 oz. The nurse said we should expect him home by the end of this week. I was so excited - start...

Re : Mag or not?

<t>Sondra: I too wasn't given the option, they had to give it to me. The nurse warned me that I would make me feel "flu-like" and hot, which it did. When it goes into your vein it burns each time, and it makes you feel like its a thousand degrees in the room. Here's a tip - ASK FOR A FAN! Chances ar...

Re : Looks like it has started - update

<t>Dawn: From one "frequent flyer" to another, stay rested as much as possible; that will at least keep your BP down. That in and of itself will keep you out of L&D. I made it from 25 to 32 weeks, so its possible, but as most people here warned me, once those BPs start going nuts sometimes there...

Re : rollercoaster

<t>Oh my god can i relate to this! Luke has only been there for 2 weeks and we have a way to go and every day my mood depends on the nurse I get. Today for example the Dr said he was ready to be out of the isolette and into a crib, but the nurse said NO,not until later when she was sure that he was ...

Post Partum Questions

<t>I feel so trivial asking for advice with what happened to Ann; so I hope you'll all forgive. But I have a question for you all - since my delivery, I have still be suffering with lingering headaches, which are really, really painful. My BPs are still elevated but not as high as they were before, ...
