Congratulations on the birth of your son Laken. I'm so sorry that you are experiencing all of this stress with his health. I had a 25 week preemie who also had difficulty with breathing. He was on the ventilator for a while then was on the oscillator after his PDA surgery that collapsed his lungs. It is so scary to watch them struggle to breathe. They had to wean my son off morphine after the surgery (pain meds from surgery that they can't just take them off). We think that the morphine was adding to his breathing struggle. He eventually did make it off the oscillator and onto the ventilator again. He went home on oxygen from the hospital after 99 days. He had oxygen at home for another 3.5 months. It was a struggle, but my son is now almost 5 years old. He is strong and doing well. Please update us on how Laken is doing.
