    It sounds like little Lloyd is doing really well & his weight gain is great!!

    Here's hoping that he continues to thrive & go forward in leaps & bounds.



    Huge hugs to your friends coz it sounds like they need them, it is such an emotionally draining time when you are spending most of it at a hospital watching your baby & not really being able to do much. Hope that they are getting plenty of rest coz they don't need to end up sick either.

    Lloyd weighed 915 grams on Tuesday night. As a reward for growing, he is now allowed 14 ml of milk every two hours. That's nearly 3 teaspoons!

    It looks likely that his parents will get their first opportunity to hold Lloyd today!

    It really is amazing what special care units can do for premmies now. When seren was in special care, I was amazed at how well they can look after even the tiniest of babies. Infection control was a major factor at the hospital, and everyone was made to constantly disenfect and they're rules were very strict (and for good reason).

    It really is terrifying having a prem baby. I'm so glad that everything seems to be going well Fi. It is a long road to going home, but so worth it when that day comes!

    hey glad to hear he is doin ok so far!

    Just a little light on the matter, my DH's aunty had her IVF twins at 22 weeks in the year 2000 they were the most premature in that year! and they are now turning 6 this year! because they were a boy and a girl apparently the boys dont get all the good stuff when they are in the tummy so he is deaf and has a bionic ear so he can hear purfectly but needs the ear pak! they are great kids and when they came out they put a bunny rabbit next to them in the crib and it looks like a big one but its really a small one so they were tiny but were fighters!!!

    So yeah, hope llyod is doin ok!

    Thought I should come back and update this.

    Lloyd finally went home on Saturday, 11 March 2006 after 120 days (4 months) in hospital. He now weighs 3150 grams (6.9 pounds) and is 51 cm long.

    He passed his due date two weeks ago (1st March). O

    What a little fighter!!!

    WOW! How awesome...at two weeks past his due date he's 6.9 pounds? My niece is about 3 weeks and she's only just over 7 pounds now. The staff at the hospital & his parents have obviously done such a terrific job with him!

    Yep 6.9 pounds (I used a measurement converter on the Net - I'm not good with baby weight in grams and kgs!). I guess he's just like a regular newborn now which is fantastic.

    Fee, that's awesome news. I must have missed this thread initially and have had tears as I read of Lloyd's journey. I'm so thrilled for him and his family that he's gone home. =D>
