This is the amazing story of our micro preemie, John Craig. He was born on November 30, 2005 at 24 weeks and 5 days gestation. He weighed 1 pound 8 ounces and was 12 inches long. John is a true miracle and an inspiration to all that meet him!
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29.11

He's Still Got It...

John just can't seem to shake this nasty poor little baby. He isn't sleeping much because of it and with all the coughing comes more vomiting:( Ohhhhhh...I hope it ends soon. However, I do realize how lucky we are that we can mange this from home.....a lot of micro-preemies are hospitalized and need oxygen & breathing treatments when they get colds. We just continue to count our blessings.....and pray for it to end:)
Soooooo, since he hasn't been sleeping much because the coughing wakes him (he was up at 6:00am) and of course he wouldn't nap, the two of us headed up to Grams and Grandpa's for the afternoon. Thanks Mom and Dad for giving me a breather!!!

Note to self...put knee pads on your son before he crawls around on the flagstone:)

HI there, long time. Our comouter has been down for a while. We to have had the same choking/gagging make you throw up cough. Alot of my friends with children are experiencing the same thing. I actually took James in for a chest x-ray because I was affraid it was aspiration from his feeds, thank goodness the x-ray was clear. His nose is stuffy/runny too so it is a cold. a friend of mine from the NICU told me of a cough suppressant called Delsym 12 hour cough relief, it is without alcohol and contains no fever reducer or pain reliever, but I used it last night and James had no coughing and slept straight through the night. Just thought I would let you know. James has had his cough since wednesday last week. Doctor said it was viral and could last 2 to 6 weeks WHAT!!! YIKES. Hope John is well soon. Tracy
