Hi fellow NICU nurses.
I am currently on the other side of the NICU fence. One of my 34 5/7 twins is in the NICU. He was born Nov 12 weighing 1430 grams. I can tell you it truly sucks on the other side. This is twin B, Twin A weighed 2180 grams. I was induced because of twin B's IUGR. This twin also has Pierre Robin sequence, small jaw, short tongue and cleft palate. He has had the lip tongue fusion done and is doing well. Now we are trying bolus feedings and hopefully will soon be introducing a bottle and getting my little guy heading home. I have never seen this sequence before if anyone has any encouraging words they would be very much appreciated!!! He has also had 2 rounds of Indocin and his PDA is still small to moderate, however he has NEVER been symptomatic (desats, bradys), so we are just sitting back and waiting.
