Nikkole I can imagine you wanting to curl up into a ball, and cry...and thats okay. I wish I could be with you through this. Ethan is a fighter, we've seen that already. He is still growing, so keep getting stronger ETHAN!!!! Nikkole, there are no words to tell you what I want, but know I think of you and Ethan often and pray for all the strength in the world.

Don't give up. Ask a million questions, research and then advocate for Ethan. Don't let them push you into decisions that you don't support. Doctors often paint the worst picture possible (The Eeyore syndrome). That way if it does happen, they've prepared you and if it doesn't, then they look good.

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of miracle stories about preemies given no hope. I firmly believe that Ethan will be another one.

Hugs!

Nikkole, I'm praying that Ethan continues to grow and that his lungs start healing themselves. He is such a strong little man. I'm also praying for you. You two are in my thoughts and prayers. ((hugs))

Oh Nikkole,

I've been just sitting here staring at your post for the longest time. I don't know what to say...there just aren't words. I can't even begin to imagine how awful this roller coaster must be for you. I'm still praying hard for you and Ethan, along with so many others.

You're in my prayers and thoughts as well. I am sure you're hearing that old saying, "God never gives us more than we can handle..." When people said that to me, during the toughest stuff I'd ever go through I said--"well, I think he trusts me too much". I wish I could just reach through the computer, wrap my arms around you and give you a hug. This is just too much. Hang in there--we're all thinking of you. Much love,

Honey, I'm so sorry that you are going through so much right now. I will be praying that Ethan continues to grow and that he can get strong enough to heal.
