I just found out today that my 3 week old son born at 27 weeks has a bacterial infection. I'm not sure what causes that or how serious it is. If anyone else has had a preemie baby in the NICU that also had a bacterial infection please tell me everythings going to be okay. My husband and I are a wreck with worry. The Dr. is treating it with antibiotics right now but we have to wait for the bacteria culture to come in to figure out what type of infection it is. The Dr. said it could be serious or could be fixed with antibiotics. He just had a blood transfusion yesterday as well...my poor little boy has been going through so much. I'm so worried that all of these illnesses will cause permanant damage to his health.
