Maxx Update

The below post is an update from S & N over at Baby Quest

When Nathan phoned the hospital this morning to check on Maxx we were given some news……..

….Maxx had been breathing on his own for over 8 hrs without help OMG!!  I was going to post today to let you know he had gone back onto CPAP from IMV but he had other idea’s.

They have desided for now to have a tiny, tiny bit of air called free air flowing for him but our amazing litle boy had dug his heels in again and surprised us all, I just can’t believe what he keeps pulling out of left field.  He will go back onto the CPAP when he gets tired but what a step from a baby with chronic lung desease.

Yesterday he had his eye test and it has shown that he has mild ROP (retinopathy of prematurity).  This is when a premmie baby has been exposed to to much oxygen of a period of time.  Most preemies have it but because Maxx was on a large amount for a while this is where it’s come from.  He has a test in 2 weeks to see if it has developed anymore.  Most bubs grow out of it but if not he will have surgery.

So thats the news today and I have a grin from ear to ear!!
