Default Prayers and Good Vibes Requested

My Cousin and his girlfriend just had a baby today.. very early he weighed in at just 1lb 14oz. He's a fighter though looks like and he's at a good hospital in VT!

So any good vibes or prayers would be lovely!

Thx!

I am sorry, Deedles. Prayers headed for your family.

My cousin had a baby very early 2 years ago. They have a wonderful little one now. I am praying you will be able to say the same about your cousin one day.

Prayers sent!

My baby cousin was born just under 2lbs. It was very very scary. He's 10 now and perfectly healthy kid.

Sending good thoughts for your family. My son was early too, but not nearly that little, so I can only imagine how much harder that is. The NICU is a scary place for anyone though. It is also extremely exhausting to drive back and forth to the hospital, all the while leaving your baby behind. I know you live quite a distance, but if there is anyone close by to them, any help for "normal" stuff is really what we needed. Food, taking care of pets, getting the mail, etc. Even though we were technically home most of the time, it felt like we were on another planet, so anything that helped to take care of non-baby stuff was the greatest help to us.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.

I don't know much about babies and birth weights, but I hope everything works out.

Update: Got a post this PM from my cousin saying that he has had a setback and is back on a ventilator and that they are hoping for the best...

I'll keep you posted if I hear anything new

Oh no, I'm sorry to hear this. I know it doesn't help, but I think this is pretty common for the NICU. It seems like there was always a one step forward, two steps back kind of thing happening. Thinking of you and your family, deedles.
