Intro

Hi ladies, I've lurked here for quite some time as my docs had predicted I would deliver early due to my having Stage 3 Kidney Disease, I guess they were right. Griffin James was born on 6/19/13 at 27w2d, weighing 2lbs 7oz. He's quite the little trooper, he was off the ventilator on his first night, then switched from the cpap to the high flow cannula a couple of days later. He's doing amazingly well, I'm so proud of our little guy. He may be graduating to level 2 NICU this week if there's room for him.

My H and I live 4 hours away from the hospital he's at so I'm currently staying at a Ronald McDonald house so that I can pump, H is working during the week and will spend weekends here with us. My mom was able to fly out to help while I recover from the csection.

I've been able to hold Griffin 3 times so far, one quick session because he was still under the phototherapy lights and 2 kangaroo cares, which have been the best thing ever.

Anyway, just wanted to say hello, and here's a pic of our little guy!

  • Congrats! He is super cute! I am so glad you have been able to hold him. We absolutely loved kangarooing Anna. I think our record was 12 hours one day! My DH would do marathon sessions and the NICU nurses named him "Kangaroo King!" 


      Our Angel Patricia born sleeping 3/30/12 at 31 weeks
    Our Fighter Anna born early 1/8/13 at 26 weeks
    Hoping to bring home #3 due 9/9/15
  • Congratulations on little Griffin! He is adorable, and he looks healthy and strong. I hope that your stay is short and smooth. That stink that you're so far away and that H will be commuting on weekends, but it's fortunate that you have a Ronald McDonald house near you.

    Congratulations! What a sweet sweet boy you have there. I'm so glad you're able to stay at the Ronald McDonald House. We were able to do that too, it is such a huge blessing being able to be close.
