Hope Olivia starts to get better soon.
I only have 2 premies. Ella (2 year old) was born at 37 weeks so just term by the skin of her teeth. She was a wee grubber and ate all the time. She was bottle fed from the minute she was born, and in 2 years she has only had 2 colds and 3 ear infections
The twins are just 8 weeks old (2 months today). They were born at 34 weeks. Ironically I had been at the twin clinic on the Tuesday begging the Dr to induce me ealr , i.e there and then, but she refused and things started by themself on the Wednesday, and low and behold 27 hours later they arrived. Katie was fine, but spent 4 days in an incubator in the room beside me. Abbie was having a few wee problems with breathing and was taken straight to High Dependency and put onto c-pap. She was only on it for about 12 hours, but kept in for 5 days in high dependency. She then joined Katie and I in transitional care. We all got out 2 days later. Unfortunately both girls wouldn't feed and were taken back in just 2 days later. Katie was dishcarged there and then, but poor Abbie went back into special care. This time they found increased white cells indicating an infection, but as yet have to find where that infection was. The wee soul had several venflons, drips, and a lumbar puncture at barely 2 weeks old
Both girls are gaining weight now. Katie was 5lb when born, but now at 8.7lbs. Abbie was 5.6lbs when born and now 8.10lbs (well when they were weighed a week ago!) Abbie still seems to be the sicker of the 2. She has had what appears to be conjunctivitis for a few weeks now and both of them are loaded with the cold - Abbie is much worse than Katie.
I know what you mean about turning blue. Abbie has done it once or twice in the car. Really scary. She wasn't allowed out of the hospital until she passed a Car seat challenge - her breathing was monitored for an hour while in the car seat. She nearly failed as she moved at 58 minutes and knocked the sensors.
