I'm so sorry that you are facing all of this alone. You and Ethan are in my prayers. He has done so much beyond expectations already - we just need to hope that he will continue to exceed expectations.

I cannot even imagine how you must feel right now. As those before me have said Ethan has proved to be such an amazing little guy and fighter. I will continue to send my prayers yours and Ethans way.

Nikkole, I am so sorry to hear your recent news! Ethan has proven to be such an amazing little miracle boy that I just know he's going to ramp up his efforts and show those doctors just what he can do! I'll keep sending growing and healing vibes to your little man! I'm also sending you strength ... when you feel like you just don't have the strength anymore look to us to provide it to you! We are there with you in spirit and here to listen whenever you need us! ((HUGS))

Nikkole, ((HUGS!)) I'm so sorry to hear this latest news. I continue to pray for you both daily.
Fight Ethan fight! He's so strong willed - I know he has it in him to continue showing off.
Stay strong you two!

Much love, Jenn

I just wanted to offer a friendly hug. He's already a fighter and we will all *stand* here with you to see exactly what he can do when given the chance. For now, draw on his strength until you are able again to draw on your own. That's what families do. I also think about you both each and every day.

Nikkole, I know this was incredibly hard to hear. I believe the vent is very hard on the lungs. Ethan is growing well, though, which must be good. I hope the head scan shows no more issues.

I can't imagine how devastated you must feel right now, and I truly wish you had better support. Please let us know if we can do anything for you.

Try and stay hopeful: preemies often surprise everyone, even the doctors.

Many hugs.
