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.

Keeping the wee one and all the family in my thoughts!!
Byron,GA> Charleston, SC> Jacksonville, FL> Guilford, CT> Rohnert Park, CA! A southern drawl in sunny Cali! . The amount of time from slipping on the peel and landing on the pavement is exactly one bananosecond. I do have a secret yen for pink in unexpected places. ~ninja dog
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.
2/c and some 3A.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets or use a curling brush - classic glamor. Every day is a gift
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.
