Hi everyone, I've got a friend with 31 weeker in the NICU. He is ~2 weeks old and on the conventional vent now and evidently has a lung that was partially collapsed, but it now completely collapsed. Madeline didn't have that problem during her NICU stay, so I don't have any experience with it to be able to help my friend. Did any of your LOs have lung collapses while in the early days/weeks? What did they do for them? What did the doctors say about outcomes, etc. I just know that her current FB status says that they are "praying for a miracle" tonight and I don't know exactly what is happening. Is this something that they really can't help (hence the need for a miracle to fix it)? Are there positive stories or words of hope and encouragement you can share from your experience that I could post to her tonight?
