My son Mathew was born at 24 weeks he was 1 lb 7 oz and 11 in long. He is now 8 months old he is 16 lbs and 24 in and still in the NICU. He has had PDA Surgery, grade 4 brain bleed on right side, BPD, Pulmonary Hypertention, Grade 2 ROP in both eyes, hernia. He is still on the vent, on nitrous, just got off of Folan, on viagra, bociten, and many more. He is prob. going to get a trach but the doctors cant decide because he has been off the vent for 2 months befor the pulmonary hypertention happened when he was 4 months old and he can ventilate great he just can't oxygenate. I just wish he would start getting better now its been so hard. I know he will be fine I just can't wait for him to be better, and I don't mind waiting on him to come home I just want him off that stupid vent and all those meds.
