That is the worst . Glad you are both home now and doing okay.

I'm so glad you are home. I'm sorry they couldn't give you any answers though. I hope that he continues to do ok except for the rapid breathing. I'll be thinking of you and your family.

I feel so bad that I haven't been replying to people here, though I have been reading what is posted. I get so tired of one-handed typing (which I'm sure others understand).

I've been praying for you and little Zeb. I'm so glad you guys are home. If it makes you feel any better, your post had me concerned enough to call my own doctor because Mikaela has been having spells of really fast breathing that I couldn't get her to slow down, either (putting her to my chest to hear my breathing, shushing her in her ear, rubing her back, etc). My doctor said that it is perfectly normal - that newborns are still trying to figure out the whole breathing thing on their own, and as long as they aren't gasping, they're eating and out-puting well, the best thing to do is just watch them and know it's probably normal. I hope the same thing is true for Zeb.

And know I'll still be keeping you guys in prayer...

They found her problem with a chest xray and a detailed echocardiogram. She also had a loud murmur from birth.

A disorder called transient tachypnea of the newborn (TTN) is fairly common and usually goes away on its own. That's another possibility.
NAK

I think this is what my dd has - we were at the hospital last night, but they didn't admit her because she's otherwise so healthy. we have an appt with the cardiologist next week...

Her diagnosis was a ventrical septal defect...I don't want to hijack this mama's thread so if you want to chat please do PM me. I did a lot of reading and could probably help you find info if you need it, or otherwise lend support.

Oh honey. Thinking of you and baby Z.

Sending you and baby lots of good thoughts.

My friend's baby had the rapid breathing for a couple of weeks. She was a water baby and the thought was that she may have aspirated a bit into her lungs because her head was stuck out for a long time under water before she was born fully. My friend took her for xrays and other tests, and nothing was ever found. She's a healthy 6 month old now. I hope Zeb also just grows out of it, whatever it is. Good for you for holding him in the hospital.

Breathe healthy, little one

Jumping on the modhugpile...

I'm glad you're both home now - how hard that must have been for both of you. Keep breathing well, Zeb...

Not in your DDC, but last August we had to take a trip to the Children's hospital here for the same thing. No other symptoms besides a fast breathing rate that didn't go away on it's own. They did a chest xray and listened to her heart, but sent us home with the dx 'transient tachypnea of the newborn (TTN)'. It went away on it's own, and there wasn't a cause for it. The doctors were content ruling out heart or lung issues and sending us home. I'm sorry you had to stay so long. We still don't know what caused dd2's fast breathing rate.

I'm holding you and your little man in my thoughts and prayers. I'm so glad you're back home!

Rescue Remedy.

They should make it like Norplant for those of us have to go to the hospital way too much. And yes, two days is way too much.

So glad you are both home.
