connor day 6
well connor failed his 12 hour test. i am so bummed. miles and i went to the hospital this morning to visit him. i was so sure he was going home with us today. i had his little take home outfit with us and everything. miles said i shouldn't have gotten my hopes up so much. the nurse told us that during the 12 hour test his breathing stopped five times for more than 16 seconds. how scary. they are putting him on some kind of medication and then he should be able to come home on friday. we have to have him on a monitor at home that will alert us if he stops breathing. we are going to the hospital tomorrow to meet with the technician who will show us how to use the machine. how crazy. it really scares me to hear this news. i don't want to have him at home and then he stops breathing. i am going to be a wreck. talk about paranoid. i really didn't think there was anything wrong with him. i guess his lungs are just not quite ready. poor baby.
he did pass his car seat test, and his bilirubin test. that is good news. well it is good that they are so thorough with all the testing. miles got to hold him today. it was sweet to see them together.
