Hey Nicu Nurses..My sis just delivered a 24 week and 2 day baby on Jan 1st... she had an infection that caused her to go into preterm labor.her baby was 751 grams at birth.. . today her baby is a week old... she asked the doc when the baby was 4 1/2 days old about what the survival odds for the baby were.. and he said 50/50... .. the baby is doing good so far.. he is on cpap.. therefore hes breathing on his own... although he forgets to breath sometimes, and the alarms go off... once hes stimulated he starts to breath again... docs said that every day is a new day... what does that mean?... how do 24 weekers do on your units... do all survive? if not... what are causes of death... ... ?.. im so worried for my sis... i hope her baby makes it.. but it scares me that the doc says that every day is a new day.. so far.. he had a grade 1 IVH.. i dont know how thats doing.. he had a PDA trying to close with meds.. and now they are doing blood work to see if he has any infection... he is on a cpap.. and is getting some breast milk ...docs say he is doing good on the respitory side.. he has jaundice... therefore hes on phototherapy...how does the picture look to you guys?
