Re : 'Ghans are here! - Indiana help me!!!

<t>I have lots of contacts at area hospitals so if you need any, let me know. My best contacts are at Riley so anything I can do to help, I'm there for you. I'm not the craftiest person but I can always tie something together. :) And heck, I'm a good marketer and a graphic artist by trade so I can h...

Re : PAD

The last I heard (almost a week ago), we were at about 300 names. I will definitely post pictures and hope to see a few people there.

Re : What does the abdominal pain feel like?

<t>Boy, this is bringing back some symptoms. My first symptoms of PE were the spots in my eyes, swelling, not going to the bathroom, weight gain. I went to the doctor and was put in the hospital. Within two days I had hyperreflexivity (loss of central nervous system), blind in one eye, hallucination...

Re : Premmie Head?

Oh my gosh, I forgot about the ears!! Riley's would flap down. Gosh, at the time you think you'll remember this stuff forever.

Re : Jealous

<t>Mommyof1 - I also wanted to say that it does get easier. I think having a preemie is a lot like going through the 5 stages of grief. <br/> 1. Denial<br/> 2. ANGER<br/> 3. Bargaining<br/> 4. Depression<br/> 5. Acceptance<br/> I know for the longest time, even after Riley got home, I was MAD. I was...

Re : Insensitivity

Prematurity also affects our taxes, social security, health insurance premiums, etc and that's for people who aren't directly affected by the birth.

Re : Jealous

<t>I had a girlfriend whose due date was a few days after mine. A week after Riley was born (over 14 weeks early), they called to invite us to the Big Ten basketball tournament as a way to get out of the hospital(I'm from Indiana, so this is perfectly normal). Everyone begged us to go, including our...

Re : Premmie Head?

<t>We had a nurse in the NICU who actually "hung" Riley while she was intubated. She was the only one who did it but darnit if my kid didn't have a perfectly round head when we left. Since she was born by c-section, we didn't have the funny head from the birth canal either. I smiled when I read thes...
