Yes, DD will be getting Synagis, starting at her next appointment. She will technically be too old (6 months) but her pediatrician petitioned for her to receive it using her adjusted age. She just barely makes the cut off for receiving the injections.
I started doing the research the day after she was born. I asked the NICU nurses for as much literature as possible on the benefits/risks of Synagis. I had pretty much decided to have her get it even before my milk dried up completely 10 weeks post partum. When I realized that I had no choice but to formula feed my daughter, I decided right then and there that she would get all the help she could to stay alive, no matter how "engineered" that help may be. If it keeps her lungs functioning, I say shoot her up!
And Knittin, thank you. Before I got to your post, I had a racing pulse, was red in the face, and breathing heavily with tears in my eyes. This road is hard enough to travel without being preached to about things we KNOW are important, especially bfing since so many of us have struggled.
