I had my baby boy on aug 11 i was 23 weeks and 4 days. He was 1 lb 6 oz and 11 inches long. Today makes the 53rd day he has been in the nicu now he is 2lbs 14 ozs. All of the nurses was suprised that he made it this far because they only gave him a 16% survival rate. about 2 weeks after he was born he had to have surgery to close the pda in his heart. And he still has bleeding in his brain. Now they are saying his platlets are low and could be an infection so they are giving him antibotics. He still can't breathe on his own but slowly but surely winging him off the ventilator and will try and give him steroids next week to help with that. It is still just hard not able to take him home feed him hold him when i want even though i know the nicu is there to help. I help change his stinky diaper :) and check his temp and its helping a little. Has anyone else been through this? How long did your preemie stay in the Nicu?I
