I am a 21 yr old who just gave birth to a premature baby girl on march 6,2009 she is now a little more than 5 months old and got NEC at 2 weeks old. she was born at 31 weeks weighing 1 pd 10 oz and measuring 13inch. She has gone through 3 surgeries already,and is doing
[More] much better. As you may all know she is a short gut kid. Meaning she has very little intestines and that makes it hard for her to absorb her food. She is TPN dependent right now until we can get her to eat and hopefully absorb a little food.As you may all know TPN is very hard on the liver but at the same time it is the only thing keeping her alive so it's a must. They will hopefully be transferring her to Stanford where she will be started on OMEGAVEN. It is a lipid made from fish oil and not soy bean oil like the one she is getting right now. I don't know what is in store for Adriana but she does have a long bumpy road ahead of her so she can really use your prayers.
Oh hello its been a min since we talked. How has things bn going with her. My lil archie came homw on may 17th whehn he went 2 the doc last he was 6'10oz and still growing he is still on oxygen but he is doing well. ttys
o yes i love telling because i wont to give hope to those who need it.. well his apendix had enlarged and was causeing his tummy to push up against his lungs and that was causeing him to not b able to breath so when he was trying to breath the air was stickin n his airway which made his tummy swell up very big.. i was so scared when the doc called me and we had to rush to the hospital. and when i got there my heart just broke. so they removed his apendix and also they had 2 fix his herrnea bcuz it was also apart of the problem. He now has an incesion rite above him navel but he is doing perfect. i jus hope and pray that he doesnt have anymore setbacks this is the third one.. not surgery jus a case of him getting really sick!!
Yes i kno exactly what ur saying he always opens his eyes soon as he hears my voice. IM IN LOVE LOL. he is doing much better they are going to start feeding him again n a few days. He hasnt ate in a week cuz of the surgery and all he is healing up well.. ty
