Possums journey

30/9/10 Meeting Possum for the first time 865g.

Very sick, still ventilated.

First cuddle, 18 days.

Graduated to an open cot at day 28, also on full feeds, just over 1kg.

First try off CPAP onto PBF oxygen.

First cuddle with Daddy.

Still so tiny.

First bath.

Newborn hearing screen, passed :-)

First car ride, inter-hospital transfer.

Finally home in his own bed.

Bigger than his doggy, 3kg.

Finally home!

For more than 15 weeks now life has been in complete upheaval. I am please to say that Possum and I are finally home and life is starting to resemble a new normal.

Possum spent 100 days in hospital and endured more procedures than I care to think about. His discharge summary is 4 pages long! He is one strong little boy! His out look is fabulous but he does have plenty of followup over the next 5 years.

He now weighs a hefty 3kg :-) I'll share some pics of our journey soon.
