Update on my son in NICU

Baby Vincent is holding his own. He is still in the NICU and on a machine to help his lungs a bit. They were going to try a trial on room air last night. I'm anxious to find out this AM how he did.

He has only lost 4 ounces which I find to be miraculous since they aren't feeding him...just sugar water IV. So he's down to 6lbs 3ozs.

I still haven't been able to hold him. I hope everyday that today will be the day. With the storm coming in here on Long Island, doctor has me staying through tomorrow. We'll see if my BP has come down at all to see if i have to stay beyond Tuesday. If not, I'm not hopeful that he will come home with me, but at least I got one extra day here with him.

Continued prayers for my son please!

Praying for Vincent and for you... make it through the storm safe and sound, and let him be able to breathe comfortably on his own.

Keep us posted, if you can.

I can't imagine how hard it must be to have to worry about your baby in the middle of this hurricane. I hope that Vincent had a good night, and was able to breathe without the machine.
Keep safe!

I hope you both fare well in this storm and that you get to hold him soon. He'll have a good story to tell about the week he was born!

I hope baby Vincent did well with his fresh air test. I will be keeping you all in my prayers. He sure will have a story to share about how he entered this world. I hope you can snuggle real soon. Take care.

and that you can both go home soon. I missed the first post about him but assume he was premature? It's good that you can be with him during the storm.
