Pray for my newborn
#1
Please pray for my newborn daughter. We've been in the hospital for a few days, we were scared for the wrost, but after two days of treatment she looks to be doing great and we thought all was finally going well and that we would be discharged today. Now the doctors are saying she could have a metabolic disorder, possibly something rare. While the doctors told us that her progress over the last couple days is encouraging, we're still unsure of everything and scared of the worst. Prayers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Blood of Christ, relief of the burdened, save us.

We met with a specialist who seemed to reassure us that it still may be nothing and that the fact that she's doing well and not presenting with anything negative that there's no imminent danger if it is anything. We're still awaiting results, but we are more at ease. Thanks to those who offered prayers. Please keep us in your prayers if possible. Pray

I've been praying to Our Lady of Sorrows and trying to meditate on her going through Our Lord's Passion through all of this. It's definitely helped, I'm thankful to Our Lady and Our Lord.

Prayers of course!!!

Chin up: they really are super careful with newborns.  My latest was in the NICU for 65 days.  It's hard to hear but sometimes that specialized care is what they need for a time in order to come home and thrive.

Thanks everyone. We've been home since last Wednesday and she seems to be doing well, gaining weight, more active, etc.. Overall it looks like dehydration and hunger. All of the tests so far have come back negative, but we still need a few more to put this behind us. Our little one has been through a lot ☹️, but I'm thankful to Our Lord that things have been looking up.

I will put out a PSA for all new parents. Be sure to keep an eye out on breast milk production in those first few days. It's good to use a breast pump to see the quantity of milk bring produced and definitely don't be afraid of supplementing with formula! Don't buy into the hype that you MUST exclusively breast feed. If you can do it, great, but don't feel like a failure if you're not producing enough! Since this happened we've had multiple people including doctors who have had similar experiences, so it seems to be somewhat common.
