Just a quick update...

Overall Bennet is doing much better! We are still in the hospital but out of Critical Care and on a general pediatric floor for monitoring. He came off oxygen on Saturday and has had only 1-2 very small, quickly resolved episodes over the weekend. He is undergoing a lot of tests as they continue to try and find out what caused the problems in the first place. We will probably be here a few more days yet as he is still on a continuous drip feeding tube that by passes the stomach into the intestines for 1/2 his feeds with the other 1/2 feed by bottle into the stomach every 3 hours. He continues to have reflux from the latter which is very uncomfortable for him. His color today has been ranging from pale to pink to dusky gray off and on although no alarms but he is being watched a little more closely. His cold symptoms appear to be cleared up as neither I nor the nurse had to suction him out since yesterday. (Otherwise it had been almost hourly!)

While Bennet is officially out of the woods as of Saturday, we still have no concrete answers as to what brought on the events that nearly caused our sweet Bennet's death. As parents this is the hardest part...waiting for them to find something and wondering if it could happen again.

Thank you all so much for the continued prayers and support...I never imagined once we came home after NICU that we would be back in such a situation and so soon! However, I am thankful that we were at least home all together for Christmas! While I seem busier now and usually only read the boards from my phone every so often I have been much encouraged by the out pouring of caring and love!

Thank you!!

Nina, I just saw this thread. Thanks for updating us. I do hope they figure out what is causing the episodes. I can only imagine how worried you are about Bennet. Maybe as he grows some, he will just outgrow this if they can't find out the cause. I will keep hoping for the best for you.

Nina - thank you so much for posting the upbeat update! I was worried but didn't want to take up any of your time by posting and asking. You have your hands full but the news is so positive and you know we are all pulling for that baby boy along with you!

On a personal note, I have had a history of breathing problems and related health issues since I was small - and am now a big 6 ft., 300 pound (well maybe less thanks to the SPARK board) middle aged man living a pretty wonderful life!!

Wishing your family ( and everyone else) a GLORIOUS 2009!
