    Parent Mentor | Dear Baby P The Sequel

    So this is the random about mom post.

    Recently a saw a group on Facebook, Project Sweet Peas, mentioning a new program they are starting. It’s a parent mentor program where you get paired up with parents currently in the NICU.

    I signed up and got the confirmation today after agreeing to their terms.

    Soon I should hear about the family I am getting paired up with.

    I hope I can do well at this. I feel like I have a good ear and after having two totally different NICU stays I feel like maybe I help a family where I wish we had with the both of the boys.

    With the wee one’s stay I had more help with a group of ladies on fb and also finding blogs like Ain’t No Roller Coaster, etc. but still felt a bit lost at times.

    The Upcoming Week | Dear Baby P The Sequel

    know ti’s Saturday and still *this* week and I don’t want to wish the weekend away but I am mentally thinking about what is coming up this coming week.

    Monday afternoon:Monday afternoon will be out first offically visit with EI and OT. I mean they came out before to talk to us but this time they are going to work with the wee one. I am kind of excited to see what they do and whatnot.

    Wednesday morning:Wednesday morning he has his what used to be weekly checkups but now I guess are every other week. Here’s to hoping it goes smoothly unlike the last one. I think it should as overall I think the wee one is doing well. I am leaning to think he is going through a growth spurt as he is sleeping better and sleeping a lot. He is also out of his preemie clothes and some of the new born stuff seems to be getting bit snug on him in the feet. I believe he is getting longer. Yeah the boy is going to be tall I think. With him out of his preemie clothes I am donating those to the NICU. i wasn’t sure if Ridges takes some of the really small stuff so I may see if the U will take anything that Ridges doesn’t. I imagine the U would take the smaller stuff as they care for the real little ones.

    Outside of those two days nothing else happening this coming week there really isn’t any other appointments.

    Well mom has an appointment but with work I may reschedule yet again. It is an appointment to see if i *actually* have the bleeding disorder i was told I had years ago. Part of me is curios but the other part of me really doesn’t care as we are not having more kids so it’s really a non issue for the most part

    Over 4 hours at the clinic | Dear Baby P The Sequel

    Needless to say that was not how I imagined my Wednesday to go today. The thought was sleep in a tad, kiss the peanut and the sweetie goodbye as the wee one and I went off for his now every other week checkup. Then get the all clear and off to work I would go finding conflicts for attorneys to clear.

    In reality the morning went a bit like this…

    We got to the clinic and they did his measurements and weight.

    The good news of the appointment is the wee one is 12 pounds. Yes folks 12 pounds! Talk about chunky monkey. Seeing him at this weight so is crazy and I tried to remember him at the little 2 pounds 12 ounces when he was born. He is 22 inches long so yeah he’s getting tall!

    After all of that then the doctor came into check in on the wee one. The doctor looked at him and asked if I had any questions. I mentioned that his wheezing seemed to be getting worse. The doctor noted that it was and then said his breathing was really bad and labored. Then started talking about the possiblity of him needing to be admitted to the hospital but wanted to run some tests first.

    Thankfully his o2 levels came back at 100%, his white blood cells looked good and his RSV test came back negative. So thank goodness for all of that. He was also given a nebulizer treatment.

    The downside is right now we are sitting at this could be something viral but not sure where he got something viral from as he nor the peanut goes to daycare and they don’t really get out of the house. The doc said it would have been something that I caught at work and as an adult I am not feeling it but passed it off on him.

    Yeah they don’t know…

    So the plan of action started as steriods and neb treatments till Saturday and then recheck on Saturday. If things didn’t seem improved he would be admitted into the hospital.

    After a bit of consulting between Ped and neonatogists the plan now is meds and neb treatments till tomorrow. Then he goes back in tomorrow. If things don’t seem improved they will try and figure out what’s wrong and possibly still admit him into the hospital.

    I hate having that hospital possibility hanging over our head.

    I hate only knowing right now it could be something viral but yet I am thankful it is possibly nothing serious.

    Outside of that he know wants us to bring him to a lung doctor for some follow ups along with the cardiologist and urologist.

    We will also be using the home health care nurse through the County more. I know he meant well but it really rubbed me the wrong when he said that we should have been using her more as a pair of expert eyes. When we first had her out all of us felt weekly visits, etc weren’t really needed at that point becuase he wasn’t really have any major issues. While waiting for all the tests to come back I did give her a call and made her aware of the wee one’s health situation. So now we are trying to figure out a game plan for her to come out. After tomorrow we will finalize things and she is going to be gone for the holidays till Januray 6th.

    So all in all we will see and we have to wait and see if it is indeed something viral or if its more and there is a chance sad chance of spending the holidays in the hospital.
