AAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Post by allthegoodnamesweretaken on Mon Oct 15, 2012 11:56 am

This is as much a rant as anything, but it's aimed, so I thought this might be the best place to put it.

My son is a premature birth. My wife was 28 weeks along.

I do not want to "pray about it".

I take no comfort from anyone telling me that "God has a plan"

I am not a lick sorry about the minister (actually my wife's minister) that I sent scurrying. I will not take comfort in anything that he says and told him as much.

Your son is a little bear. One day he will be a big bear. Congrats! And may the gods bless you both!

at 28 weeks he was already 15 inches and almost 3 pounds. If it means anything, and I know it doesn't, I think he's gonna be big

With the bear for a dad, that would not be a surprise. Smile

All, if this gives you any comfort, my twins sons were born at 30 weeks at 2 lbs and 3 lbs 8 oz. They both required heart surgery....one at 8 days and again at 3 weeks and the other at 2.5 months. Today, they are 18 year old bears! You'll get through this....your wife will get through this....and your son will get through this. Rant all you want....whatever it takes. If you need to vent to somebody who has been there, let me know.....

It just means he's gonna do WHAT he wants WHEN he wants and will not care about what anyone else says "should" happen. He completely disregarded the "expert" doctor and all that due date nonsense.
He may grow up to be a bear, but he was born a little wildcat.

It's like I was commenting to my wife last night. He's like a line from the forward to Egils Saga. "Egil's enemies are motivated by treachery, self interest, and malice, and he confronts them with the family traits of obstinacy, ruthlessness, animal strength, and an instinctive inability to accept authority."

Remember that when he's 14 and you want to strangle him. LOL

And trust me, you WILL want to strangle him. I love both my girls, but sometimes..... oh boy they can push those buttons.

Yeah, All....boys...there's nothing like them! On my sons' third birthday, I celebrated the fact that I had survived the age of 2! But I will tell you, All, that 14 was the worst year ever.....don't ever say I didn't warn you! Laughing

The thing is, right about the time you want to strangle them, they go and do something nice or cute....and then it's like you have amnesia or something and you forget all about the bad stuff! I'm convinced that this amnesia is really the only reason the human race has survived! Otherwise, children would never survive to adulthood! Shocked

As my dad used to say "She's an angel - when she's asleep!"

A week ago I got back from watching one of my grandsons, the 18 month old, for a few days and what fun he is. Adorable! All he has to do is say Meme! and throw his arms around me and who cares about anything else.

Now he picked up an infection in the hospital and is in the process of aging me at least 10 years.

What was sleep like? I forget.

So how is his infection? Is it any better? Is he still on a respirator?

so far the culture since the antibiotics has not turned positive. It has only been 24 hrs though. They let it go for a total of 5, but focus on the first 2 days.

He's still on the respirator.

I have to admit, I almost went physically violent on the staff yesterday. Normally, I am like I am here, but my son is hooked to tubes and beeping machines, and choices that would never occur to me, seem logical.

You don't have to tell us that, All. I'm thinking wonderful thoughts for you guys. I know your wife must be beside herself. I know I was when Charlie had her asthma attack. I kept it together because I knew she could hear me, even though she was unconscious. But, once she was alert and on that life flite, out of my view, I broke.
Keep hanging in, hun. He comes from tough stock, he'll win. Spoil him like crazy.
