Re : staph infection

So do you think they will keep her in the NICU while she is on the IV antibiotics? I found out yesterday it was Staph Aureus, they are culturing to see whether it is the resistant kind. Hopefully not. Thanks for all your reassurances.

staph infection

<t>Lily has a staph infection in her neck. I noticed it one evening when I was changing her and it was a red bulge. I asked the nurses to look at it and they said they'd have the doc look at it in the morning. (there was a neonatologist on duty, but they wanted Lily's regular doc to look at it since...

Re : Preparing for hospital and a possible NICU stay

Thinking of you Sush! SOunds like you're prepared. Just think, you'll probably have air conditioning in the hospital! Sounds like the bag for little Aurelia will make her happy. Can't wait to follow your updates.

Re : Oh no ... 24 h results

Thinking of you. The results were not too much higher than the diagnosic criteria, that seems like it would be a good thing? I am looking forward to reading your update. Take care of yourself.

Re : She latched on!

<t>I'm using Lanisoh, it says you don't have to wipe it off before nursing. We went again tonight and she didn't nurse for long, I think b/c she got a bath and used all her energy crying that teeny little head off, and when she latched on my toes curled and I felt like crying. I usually have a moder...

Re : Here I am...nowhere else to go....

<t>Is there a social services organization that provides respite care by nurses? <br/> <br/> I'm so sorry you are going through so much, and that your ex can't even help with his own child. It just seems to me there's got to be some organization that can help. I hope you are somehow able to get some...

Gift for NICU nurses

<t>I know this is very early b/c Lily won't be coming home for a while, but does anyone have any nice ideas of a gift for the nurses who cared for our little one? They are angels, and it feels like we've already gotten to know them, and it's only been two weeks. I want to leave them something to sho...

She latched on!

<t>We went to see Lily and we did some non-nutritive sucking, and she totally latched on and started sucking! Noah never did that, no matter hard we tried to get him to. I'm still only pumping like 10 cc's per session which is really discouraging, so this felt like a victory. Maybe breastfeeding wil...

Re : Is it normal to be so scared?

<t>tree - that is really comforting to know b/c I'm the kind of person who hates to bother people, and I feel like I'm bothering the nurses when I call. The times I have called they have always been really nice about telling me how she's doing. Given what you've said I think I will feel comfortable ...
