Re : Need info for Premmie on Vent

<t>That is wonderful news! Hearing your story brings back so many memories. <br/> <br/> As for the turn to the hospital, we drove past ours this weekend, and it seemed strange (after 2 years!) to go on past!<br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> ------------------------<br/> Sharel O'Connell<br/> Local coordinator...

Re : Need info for Premmie on Vent

<t>I too had to give up on pumping. I did pump the whole time aaron was in the NICU and for a while after he came home (10 weeks total), but with my fulltime work schedule and caring for Aaron, there just wasn't enough hours in the day! (Aaron never did learn to nurse.) If she just got a little bit ...

Re : New here!

<t>That's great that so-far-so-good with your husband. I can tell you that the NICU & preemie parenting IS hard on the marriage. My husband & I have gone thru a hard time over the past 2 years. Luckily we were committed to working out our problems and have survived.<br/> <br/> I'm glad that ...

Re : Delayed motor skills-Need to talk

<t>I know what you mean....<br/> <br/> We had all of our Early Intervention appts in our home. It made it nice for Aaron to use his own toys, Boppy, etc. <br/> <br/> At his one-year neonatal update appt (back at his birth hospital), they had a developmentalist work with him and he didn't do as well....

Re : Question for all of you HGers

<t>oh geez... I was asleep last night when I was reading/posting here... for some reason, I was thinking HG meant gestational diabetes. I have no idea why! {blush}<br/> <br/> Now that I'm awake, let me add that while pree/HELLP almost killed me, hyperemesis is just as scary for me! I was working ful...

Re : Delayed motor skills-Need to talk

<t>One other note about early intervention.... <br/> <br/> (yes, all of them seem to be a bit different in guidelines, etc.) But with ours, they will provide services if the child presents a delay of at least 25% from the BIRTH DATE. Which I feel is a good thing... it makes it more likely that the c...

Re : Delayed motor skills-Need to talk

<t>I concur with Tahoe. Early Intervention is a wonderful program. It is free, so the insurance, etc. doesn't have anything to do with it. All kids from birth to three are eligible. <br/> <br/> They evaluated Aaron when he first came home from the hospital. (it was at about 2 months old, or -1 month...
