Too much loss...Ethan is okay...

<t>Don't know where else to go so I find myself coming back to my friends on the PE website. Last Thanksgiving was awful because I don't have Ella. I thought this year would be a little better since Ethan is here and such a miracle. My brother showed up at my door at 5:30 Monday morning to let me kn...

Scared of the options...

<t>I didn't want to post this on Ethan's website, but I need to get it out. Talked to the doctor today and as I said in his CarePages, the next plan is to wait for him to get to 2200g (now at 1790g) and try to extubate him again...possibly with another round of steroids if needed. We also talked mor...

<t>So I had some pulling/tenderness in my breast while pumping a few days ago and then I got some numbness and itching from the side of my breast back to my shoulder blade. I am having an u/s done on my breast within the next day or so to check for a clogged duct or something. BUT now there is some ...

Ethan's website...

<r>I have created a Care Pages website for Ethan so that I can keep everyone updated without sending out separate messages. You have to become a member but it only takes a second. <br/> <br/> <URL url="">

<t>Today is Ethan's due date...8/8/08. I thought I wouldn't mind because I am so blessed to have him here. I know what it's like to not be that fortunate. But I feel sad today...grieving the normal delivery and bringing him home that I had so hoped for. I know I'll get over it and I am just thankful...

Chunky Monkey...

<r>Had a scary day yesterday. Nurse tried to flip Ethan to his stomach while he was desatting and partially extubated him. Well, he was already upset so then he aspirated into his ET tube and ended up coding. Chad was there but I wasn't. He called me and I panicked. I've never driven so fast in my l...

Experience with Reglan????

<t>I have been pumping since Ethan was born but never got more than 2oz at each pumping. This has been plenty for him and we have quite a back up supply, but my milk started to decrease last week and I was worried. So I got a prescription for Reglan to help with increasing my supply. I've been takin...

3 POUNDS!!!!

<t>I never thought I would be able to say it...Ethan reached 3 lbs on Thursday. I didn't post about it yesterday because I thought he would lose some last night, but he actually gained another 2oz. 3lbs, 2oz. Can you believe it???? We had an incredible night last night. After doing his "cares" he wa...

<t>So we had a conference with Ethan's team yesterday. They told us that Ethan's lungs look terrible and the only hope is that he'll grow and start to heal himself. If not, there is nothing else they can do for him. They said he's not even ready to start weaning off the vent at this point. I don't u...
