Sorry, I wasn't sure where to post this.  Veianya is back in the NICU at the hospital.  She will be there for at least three days and could possibly be there for weeks.  I just had the longest, worst day ever.  Nothing like watching your sickly brand new baby cry her eyes out while she was stuck with needles and filled with tubes.  But even worse was when I had to leave her there alone in a box. bawling.gif

 

I am home pumping all the milk I can for her.  Nothing else I can really do.  I'll probably venture over to the Preemie and NICU forum on MDC because this sucks and I've never been through anything like this before. 

 

She could use any positive thoughts...she is a sick little girl right now. :(

Thanks Tamera.  I am doing good though.  I'm pigging out and watching crap tv while I pump.  I already have five, two ounce bottles of breast milk to bring to her.  Having something like that to focus on is really helping me feel somewhat better about everything.

So sorry your sweet little girl is back in hospital. Hopefully they will get to the bottom of her breathing problem quickly. May she be back at home and snuggled in your arms soon. And what an amazing Mama you are to be producing so much health giving milk for her. I do hope you can also get some rest and peace during this difficult time.

grouphug.gif  I'm sorry to hear it, my cousin was in NICU for almost his whole first year, but they are all fine now and filled with the same intense love you have for your baby.  I'm sure there is nothing to make it easier but you have a lot of wonderful people pulling for you and your perfect new addition, lots of love to both of you, may she be fit as a fiddle very soon! grouphug.gif

I just wanted to pop back onto this thread and let you know you are both in my thoughts today Melaya.

 

I know you will update when you can, but I just wanted to send you love and hugs during this time. Praying your baby girl recovers quickly and the doctors get to the bottom of whatever is the cause quickly. May she be back at home with you sooner rather than later. hug2.gif
