As you've all seen from my last post, Sidney had to have a blood transfusion last weekend. Poor little guy was so pale. We spent literally all day Saturday and Sunday with him. He had several severe episodes of apnea and bradycardia, so much so that they had to "bag" him multiple times to revive him. He was also put on several antibiotics to fight off a virus/infection that the doctors thought he might be suffering from. Sidney was lethargic all weekend. He was very weak. Needless to say, our weekend (and Monday) was a nightmare. I don't wish this on my worst enemy. No one should have to go through this torture of not knowing what's going to happen next. Poor little man had to have an IV in each arm. He was miserable.
Over the past few days though, things have been looking up. He's more responsive, has his color back, and is breathing much better. No one's quite sure what was ailing the little guy, but I hope it doesn't come back. He seems to be recovering. Please keep him, and all the babies in the NICU, in your prayers.
More pictures to come.
