  • That would be a question to ask the doctor.

  • The doctors say it's because of the fluid. He started moving his fingers today, I just don't know if anyone else has experienced this.

  • Is your son under sedation? Even the tiniest amounts can make a baby really sleepy. Also, drowsiness could be a side effect of other meds he's on. Talk to the doctor about your concerns :) I hope your son recovers quickly.

  • Thank you for your prayers they seem to be working. They are moing him off the big ventilator today and putting him on a smaller one. His eyes are opening more than they were before.
    This is my first child, so i apologize if i'm like freaking out. I did everything that was needed to be done, vitamins, eat right and such. The doctor said it wasn't anything myself or my husband did.
    But ya know. you guys are moms it still runs through your head.
    Please keep the prayers coming
