wouldn't have taken "no" for an answer--she just basically insisted on living!!! Give me my Survanta and my Indocin and look out world, I'm here. That was her attitude.
It's too soon to tell if she'll have long term problems, but as for complications like Intraventricular hemorrhages, chronic lung problems, feeding issues, etc., she just didn't do any of it. Got extubated early, went to non-invasive assisted ventilation, got early feeds, just did terrific.
I agree w/you for some kids, but like any other group of people, premies are variable. We've all seen patients of any age go out of their way to get every complication available, and maybe a few no one else ever thought of, and others that sail through.
I think God has a plan for this little girl!!
Besides, my adopted son was a 28-30 weeker with LOTS of complications--and I wouldn't trade him for anything!!
