Some of you know....I have been an up and coming Grandma. Her due date was suppose to be November 26th, then they thought December due to his size, etc.
We were told today that he is not growing and they dont know why, so they will be inducing her in the morning. Preemies are subject to a world of problems not to mention whatever it is that is causing him to not grow. They think they can do more for him in the hospital than in the womb. Please keep us in your thoughts tomorrow, we are praying for a healthy baby boy.
Good luck my dear. But.. REST ASURED or atleast somewhat comfortable because the world of medicine is remarkable when it comes to Premies now days... modern medicine has done so mayn things that now even 5 or 6month old babies have a fighting chance... so I know the baby would hopefully be fine. :)
lpn, close to the same thing happened with my little cousin. Induced a month early to due "stalled development". She is just fine! About 3 years old now, and a fat butterball.. hehe. Don't get bent out of shape, as they will need you. I'm sure everything will be fine, and he will be absolutely beautiful! :)
hey LPN, I'm a carepage addict, I love reading stories about the obstacles people and children have overcome, I was reading one last night of a little gilr who was born at 24 weeks, and was faced with her fare share of hurdles to jump. If you get a chance it's www.carepages.com...my favorite story is of celia june
Your grandbaby will be in my thoughts and prayers, as I know what it is like to have a premie...yet Makenzie did not have the troubles some premies do as she was only 7 weeks early, and a whopping 7lbs! She did have an extended stay at the hospital due to severe neonatal jaundice. I think the lord knew how much I feared hospitals, and he spared me more than I could handle.
lpn - you have my thoughts and prayers. I can't imagine what you and your family must be going through - but rest assured that the Lord never gives us more that we can handle. I'll be praying for you....
You and your family are in my thoughts, lpn. I switched jobs awhile back, and now I'm in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit)...the technology they have now is just astounding! I have seen 26 week-old babies be born, survive, and go home a few months later. It's awesome! Good luck and keep us posted!
