Night rounds (day 16)

All we are missing now is weight gain... "Consistent weight gain." per dr. Liao

  1. Just to let you know, we have a son, now 26 years old, who in Dec 1982 was born two months early with a very large omphalocele. In his case, only his heart and lungs were inside his body. This was not pre-diagnosed. And he weighed only 3.4lbs at birth. Imagine the technology changes in the past two decades plus. So, have faith and hang in there. We have a very healthy active college graduate who is a terrific young man. We linked to your blog from Ellis' blog, whose parents know our son.

  2. Start massaging. There are several studies that show massage in preemies accelerates weight gain. Also Darick you are so sweet, my husband is still trying to convince me that his appendectomy (laproscopic) was more of a major surgery than my c section :) We are thinking about you! Amanda we miss you! Hurry back!


  3. Darick & Amanda, am reading Darick's blog every day and sending love and prayers to you and little Bayta. The grandmas were great and brought the boys to your old hood for Halloween, what a treat. Hang in there, you'll be home in no time...Miss C.
