Hello all I am new my name is Angelina 31 mom to 5 girls and wife to an awesome man. In short I am starting to buckle! I am so frightened the girls will never get off the vent! I had my twin girls 06/10/12 via c section weighing in at 1 lb 5oz and 1 lb 3oz, I had the steroid shots and they were in pretty good condition at birth crying etc. Initially they were on CPAP the first day then they just were to tired and tiny to continue, so both were placed on the conventional vent. Baby B Paige was on the jet just recently for 10 days and now baby A has followed in her footsteps both were having issues with their lungs collapsing. I am thrilled Paige is off of the jet but now it seems like I have to pull the Dr's teeth to get an answer as to how (with additional lung stimulating medications) and when she will try CPAP. I asked just yesterday if I should even be preparing to bring them home, and all I got is he doesn't know. That made me feel like my kids are never going to come home, they have had a few infections and pneumonia once and recovered with medications. The biggest issue is their lung disease. London had her PDA surgery two weeks ago tis past Wed but still has a murmur (does not require surgery) they're currently 2 lbs 7 oz. As most of you know once they have an episode of illness or blood issues feeds get stopped and days later restarted. I just feel so lost and empty, I just want my babes to live and come home with a good outcome. We were lucky they only experienced a grade 1 brain bleed 2nd day of life that resolved itself and that everything else is fine. They have just turned 32.1 weeks but are 2 months old now. Please help me regain my sanity and hope. My original EDD is 09-28-2012.
