My little man was born July 4th, low birth weight of 628 grams at 26 wks 6 days. He had a bout of NEC, was then put on CPAP, but since Saturday he has been having a lot of bad spells so he's back on the respirator. He also caught an infection that he's getting antibiotics for. They are hoping all will be good and he will unless he goes bad have his surgery Tuesday.
We are so worried, he's going trough so much right now, I saw him turn blue on Wednesday because of a bad spell where they had to bag him to bring him back. The doctors are saying that he's sadly the kind of preemie that gets everything...when it comes to infections. He is again receiving a blood transfusion today. He has received so many since he was born.
Can any of you who have experience PDA surgery on your baby let me know what to expect... even more so when it comes to his breathing.
We are so worried and concerned
