Hope your little one is feeling better.
Ok, it seems no matter what the situation is, you are going to think I am wrong, Everyone judges sometimes, I judged and I think she was wrong. I guarentee most other moms witnessing what I did would feel the same way. The nurses didn't tell me anything, I can hear, I have ears. Leaving your sick baby to smoke isn't cool in my book, sitting in the room and texting while the nurse has to come in to take care of your son is not cool. I assure you, from what I saw, there was carelessness going on. It is just really hard as a mom to listen to a baby suffer alone. This was not a NICU stay, it was not a prolonged hospitalization either, same protocol as for my daughter, he was on droplets precautions and had the septic work up like my daughter, only he was MAYBE a week old.
Thanks for your concern about my little one.
