I Spoke Too Soon…

Well it looks like I spoke way too soon on my last post! A is STILL sick and he has been so kind to pass it on to mommy. Nights have been pretty rough because he is having such a hard time getting rid of all the junk in his chest. Much more vomiting happening as well which isn’t making things any better. I started to get a sore throat the other day and immediately started taking meds to help get it before it started. Well the sore throat passed but I have a cold and just isn’t making things around here very fun!

Sunday afternoon A almost went into a full spell as well. He was sleeping, well at least trying to sleep when he started coughing. He opened his eyes so I turned him over because I could tell that he was having a hard time catching his breath. Well the next thing you know he starts to go off colour, was very upset and starting to go stiff. I immediately held him close to me and just started trying to get him to take a breath. The doctors have always told me to try and remain calm, but that is much easier said than done! How the heck can you stay calm when your baby isn’t breathing!? Anyhow he eventually took a breath, probably about five seconds before he would have been right into the spell. He had very glossy eyes after and had the look like he had just had a full spell. It is just so weird and I don’t understand how or why it happens. Hopefully one day I will find a doctor that wants to figure out what the heck is happening when he does this!

Just some comparison photos for today!

A at 3.5 months old in the NICU at just over 4lbs…

    Hey there! What changes in that big (little) man! I saw your comment on that faker…and you wanted to talk to the 15 yr old with CP. She’s on P2P…but I know you’re not there much. Her name is Erin and her user id is CPChick. I met her on another board…and brought her over.TTYL!

    Ashton was so tiny in the first picture! He sure has come a long way since he was born. I too hope that you can figure out why he has those spells you talk of. It must be so scary for you to watch him not being able to breath.

    WOW how he’s changed. I can’t believe sometimes how small they were. It’s so amazing to compare the photos.Hope you feel better soon, and I hope Ashton doesn’t have anymore spells on you.

    This just happened to a preemie Mom from my area. Her son was rushed via ambulance with an ALTE. Apparently the Drs are calling it reflux. The preemie is Bryce and he is on my page if you want to read her account. I told her about your experience with Ashton and the events seem similar. I hope you find an answer…that must be so scary.

    He is such a beautiful baba! I hope he feels better soon. That has got to be scary when he has a spell. I have to admit – every picture I see I just want to pinch those cheeks – so cute.
