I want to let you all know the good news! [:)] Baby Lucas, (b. 4/22/04(31 wks.) overcame his distended tummy problem and is now nursing. I do think that he was being fed too fast in NICU). Thus far ("knock on wood"), he was taken out of NICU and placed in an intermediary care unit. I f all continues to go well, it is expected that he will come home next weekend! MD's were anticipating his discharge at beginning of June and were pleased to tell us the good news.
Tomarrow,Mother's Day, my daughter and I will go layette shopping to prepare for his homecoming! After all the Fears, this news is such welcome relief! My daugh's bp is beginning to stabilize, however, she is on a temp 3 med bp regime which has to be changed(1 med causes headaches). If anyone has any suggestions for good books on preemies, please let us know. Thanks again for all of the help and support you have given us. HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all of you great moms!.........Marlene
