So it's 4:30 am...and I just can't get back to sleep. We just got a phone call at 3 saying that one of his lung's completely collapsed, but now he is doing better and he on his way to how he was when we left the NICU last night.
I figured I would update now since I can't get back to sleep...(I've tried everything) We are going back up to the hospital in a few hours to check on him ourselves. I just don't feel right not being there with him.
Thank-You for your thoughts and prayers!
I went for my doctors appointment yesterday(5/28) at 11:30am..then was sent to the hospital right away..
DJ was born at 7:06pm weighing 6lbs 14oz, 19.5 inches long.
He was sent to Shand's hospital as soon as the pediatrician got there because of severe respiratory complications...they've run some tests, there is a whole in his heart, his lung's are not nearly as formed as they should be. He cannot breath on his own and is in a oscillator (sp?)..hooked up to a bunch of machines. They have not been able to feed him, all he is getting is sugar water through a tube, and it may be a few days until he can have milk. They are doing more testing and have just prepared us in case they have to send him to Gainesville for surgery(can't think of the name of it right this minute)..He does seem to be improving, but he is still fighting the machine that is helping him breath. His blood pressure is also extremely low.
I will upload pics when I can but as of now I have been up for 2 days with only 2 hours of sleep. So I am off to try and get some sleep and recuperate some.
Please keep him in your prayers...
I will update again when I get a chance. Oh and Donald did get to come home...I don't know where I would be right now without him here.
