the eric update - day 91: 13 week birthday! cafffeine free! visit from grandparents.

while flickr has been having issues, i've been getting behind on posting updates. so for now, i'll just post the super abridged version and maybe i'll get around to posting the longer version when time permits. you can see annotated photos from the day here.

  • you didn't forget that it's eric lucky 13 week birthday did you? of course not. 5 pounds and 13 weeks old! what's next? of course, his 3rd gregorian monthly birthday, tommorrow.
  • his docs took him off caffeine today, which was helping him to remember to breathe, which means that they think he's at risk for having anymore "apneas of prematurity" ( he could still have feeding related apnic episodes, however ). he didn't have any alarms during the day which means that he probably won't go home with a monitor that measures his heartrate and respiration. in other words, he'll go home without any wires!
  • eric had another visit from his grandparents, which he enjoyed quite a bit.

I'm so happy for you! You give me so much hope. My micro preemie was born 8/19/04, week 26. He weighed 1lb 13 3/4oz. As of this Thursday, he'll be 33 gestational weeks and he's now 3lbs 8oz. Adam is still on c-pap for 6 hours and then 12 hours nasal canular. He's on lasik's twice a day and caffine once a day. He's had some swelling in his lower extremities but slowly that's getting better. I just wanted you to know that your story gives me hope. Thank you for sharing it with so many. Adam's Mom

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
