Hi, my LO was born last Monday at 35 weeks. He did a short stay in the NICU and was cleared to come up to my room. On Wednesday we found out DH and my oldest DD were diagnosed with the flu. I started to get sick and because of an increase in his white blood cells, they put him on Tamiflu. The next day his platelets started to drop rapidly. He has received four transfusions. He is on oxygen and a feeding tube.
Right now we are just taking it day by day. I feel like we will get a good report and then a few hours later we get a discouraging report. I am an emotional wreck. I know part of it is hormones but it so hard to not know what is going on.
I have two older daughters and I am trying to balance going to the NICU and spending time with them. I was in the hospital for a week and they weren't allowed to come visit and they still haven't seen him.
Any tips you ladies might have would be appreciated. I need to know how to get through this for Max and the rest of my family.
Welcome...sorry you have to be here, but you will find a lot support here...
Congrats and lots of thoughts and prayers coming your way.
Hello, congratulations, & welcome...I'm terribly sorry to hear about all the complications you've had so far. I didn't even know the flu was going around!
NICU is a rollercoaster...just hang on. It will get better and one day (soon, I hope!) you'll all be at home together.
