Hi Mommie -
My 26 week preemie weighed 2lb 3 1/2oz when he was born 21+ years ago. I'd had the 2 BetaMethazone injections to mature his lungs 3 days before he was born, so he could breathe on his own from the start. He was never intubated either. He was in NICU for 10 weeks until he was big enough to come home. He does have a mild form of cerebral palsy which was found when he was about 18 months old.
All these years later, he speaks German fluently, is learning Chinese, is in college, builds computers, and has a wicked sense of humor. He's a joy!
If you read many of the posts here, you'll see that my most common message is tell your doctor, call your doctor, go see your doctor. I am eternally grateful that I wasn't too late when I did call my doctor!
Wishing you well - Barbara
