Keep on keepin' on....(UPDATE)

<t>Update on Mr. Ethan (we call him Chunky Monkey). He amazes us every day. In his first 7 days he went from ventilator to CPAP and is now only on high flow oxygen via nasal canula. His head u/s revealed no brain bleeds and all chest and belly x-rays have been fine so far--WOO HOO! We have had a cou...

Yes, it's me complaining again....

<t>First, I'll give a little update on Ethan because he is so amazing. He was on the CPAP but was still intubated for a few days. They left the tube in his throat because it was helping him get the air through his tiny airways, because the CPAP face mask and nose prongs was too big and because it wa...

Re : Preemies are good things that come in small pkg's

<t>I know this is kind of an older topic but I had a hilarious comparison for size when Ella was born. I would always see those Pizza Hut commercials saying that their calzone weighed a whole pound. I used to think "I cannot believe my child weighs the same as a Pizza Hut menu item!" She was 1lb, 3o...

Is this a control issue???? LONG

<t>So I am having issues with our families as usual and I need some advice/opinions. Everything that happened with Ella was so out in the open and when I look back I wish I would've kept things a little more private. When I was sick there was always a lot of people there...I couldn't even talk to th...

Re : For Mom2ella and other new preemie moms

WOW Suzanne...that is awesome. I had never read that before. Do you know where I can get an actual printed copy to frame? If not I can do it myself...just didn't know if they sell them anywhere. Thank you so much!!

Just a little update...

<t>You are all so awesome. It never ceases to amaze me when I log on how many messages we have. So, I seem to be recovering from my c/s pretty well. It has been much more painful this time for some reason...doc said maybe because the mag I was on with Ella was a muscle relaxer so it may have prevent...

Baby Ethan is here...

<t>So I had my scans this morning and I had no measurable amniotic fluid and Ethan hadn't grown at all. I had a c-section and he was born at 1:49pm. He weighs 15oz. I cannot believe how small he is...it's so scary. He is doing some breathing on his own but is intubated with fairly low oxygen setting...

Re : Remembering the joys of motherhood ...

<t>Thanks for sharing Niki. I also have lots of memories of Ella that I live over and over in my head EVERY single day. <br/> <br/> I remember the day Ella was born. Chad couldn't stop telling me about her. "She looks just like me," he said. I was jealous. I did all the work! ;-) But I loved it. I l...
