Amazing! You can really tell just how teeny he is but he's perfect! It makes me realize even more just how much of a miracle a developing baby is! Thank you for sharing love.gif

Jonathan's having his first setback tonight. I sort of knew it was coming. Babies this early don't usually just sail through their months-long NICU stay with nothing ever going wrong. After ten good days, he's having his first setback tonight. In the late afternoon, he started looking pale and not acting like himself (he was just letting the ventilator breathe for him, not moving very much, etc.). They did a chest x-ray and it was clear. They're sending off a sample to be cultured to see what bacteria might be brewing, and since that won't come back for 48 hours, they're also going ahead and starting him on some antibiotics. They're also giving him a blood transfusion. I'll call to check on him when I wake up to pump and will come back with an update.

Not a lot of change from last night. I called his nurse and she said his color looks slightly better since he received the transfusion. He's on three different antibiotics until they get the results of the culture back. They did another chest x-ray which will be reviewed by the doctors. He is on 60-65% oxygen (he had been on 20-25% his whole life), and his digestion has been a little slow, so they may discontinue his oral feeds while he fights this off.

Just got back from the hospital (and forgot to ask about his blood type). Baby is still sick, but stable (with treatment). It's monitor and wait for the next 48 hours or so. They've stopped his feeds while he tries to fight this off, and his oxygen requirements were 70-90% while I was there.

I popped over to Jonathan's facebook page this evening... loved all the little videos! And how incredible that he responded so well to even just the sound of your voice :)

Thinking of you and your family tonight and hoping all is well soon...

I hope he's doing well today.

Oh, what a totally precious little guy... I hope he's headed back on track today.  He (and your family!) is in my thoughts.
