Re : Need info for Premmie on Vent

<t>Have you or your wife tried twirling the bottle nipple in the baby's mouth? I know that helped Aaron to re-start sucking when he'd start falling asleep. Good luck!<br/> <br/> ------------------------<br/> Sharel O'Connell<br/> Local coordinator for Pittsburgh area<br/> 'Parents of Preemies' co-mo...

Re : Ethan is not home yet

<r>What you said about Ethan having to finish his bottles... it reminded me of an essay I wrote about Aaron's prematurity.<br/> <br/> Also, a fluid ounce is very big as well. A milliliter is the measure that determines whether the baby has to have a tube down his nose for another day. <br/> <br/> No...

Re : Our adoption -- we weren't chosen

<t>Thank you so much, everyone. This adoption process is the next step in our deaing with pree. We don't want to take a chance on another pregnancy, but we do want more kids. We are going thru the state, so we have no idea when we might be chosen for a child. It is a difficult wait, but it WILL happ...

Our adoption -- we weren't chosen

<t>For those of you who caught my post about the possible match, we just found out that we were not chosen.<br/> <br/> The state reviewed 13 families for this little girl (that's a lot!) and unfortunately for us, they chose a different family.<br/> <br/> I am doing okay though. I understand that the...

Re : did anyone bring a 34 weeker right home?

<t>My baby was a 28 weeker, but he was discharged at what would have been 34 weeks. He came home on a heart/apnea monitor. I would guess that a 34-weeker with no other problems wouldn't require a very long stay.<br/> <br/> Good luck!<br/> <br/> sharel<br/> <br/> ------------------------<br/> Sharel ...

Re : Ethan update 5-12-04

<t>That child is an inspiration to us all... I am so glad that he's doing this well. <br/> <br/> My advice to your sister... be ready to be driven CRAZY by that monitor. If she thinks that all of the buzzing and beeping in the NICU is bad, wait til she's driving somewhere alone in the car w/just the...

Re : Husband is terrified about having another

<t>I wish you all the best!<br/> <br/> As for us, we have decided to not try this again. Our son was a 28-weeker and he is a fantastic 2 year old now -- no problems at all. But we both came so close to dying...and I had 4 months of morning sickness too... it is just too much for us.<br/> <br/> I DID...
