So I had my little girl at 34 weeks, which is on the older end of the preme side of things I know. I had PE that did not present like normal PE. So she was in a nicu for 9 days and sent her home on a apnea machine and told that she was fine. After see the Peds doc 48 hours later she was rushed back to the NICU for breathing problems. So here I am back at the NICU. She was at sitting in the 80's for O2. I just wonder if there will be long term effects on her now. The other thing that I find odd is that she does not open her eyes, when she tries they roll backwards. Is this normal for kiddos her age? She also sleeps all the time she has to be woken up to feed, and then she is still sleeping during that time? I know they should sleep but shouldn't she wake up sometime? After all she is now 36 and 4. To top it all off I have a 6 year old at home that is sick, and a husband that is commuting 2 hours each way to be with our NICU baby. I think I am drained. How do you handle time with both kids? Any advise is truely welcome!!
