He was full term, after some complications during the pregnancy, steroid shots, early labor, etc, etc...finally born on due date, and now at two days old, is on a vent, multiple meds, including an antibiotic 'as a precaution in case of pneumonia'...mom not allowed to hold baby or talk to him..just light touches and whispers only...seems to me like the hospital is making this baby sicker n sicker...they put him on a vent due his O2 an C02#'s not being 'right'.
they took him off the vent yesterday, only to put him back on it within 8hrs too. Imo, if the baby got sick with pneumonia, he got it from the staff/hospital. There was no meconium, either.she said this: "X is a lot more comfortable today since they added a med to help him relax which has made things easier for all of us. His co2 has been improving on the vent and they are slowly turning his numbers down. He had an echocardiogram to rule out heart defects which went well. They started him on antibiotics as a caution since they are concerned about his slower than expected recovery and can't rule out pneumonia until Thursday when his blood culture comes back. We still can't hold him and are only really able to even touch him for brief moments to help him calm down, otherwise it's hands off and whispers only so that he can stay relaxed."
