Quoting April♥:" I have a friend that just gave birth to her little boy almost a week ago. She was only 23 weeks pregnant ... [snip!] ... pray for them & their family. Also if you have any advice I could give her please let me know. Thank you so much ladies "
Unfortunately, as a NICU parent, your friend is in for a bumpy ride. The NICU course is sometimes described as a rollercoaster, and that's exactly what it is....days of great highs and days of very low lows. A brain bleed, while not ideal, isn't always terrible....it really depends on the level of the bleed. Sometimes they will resolve on their own having caused little damage....sometimes, they can be catastrophic. Unfortunately, your friend may not know how much damage was caused or the consequences of it until her child is much older. All you can really do now is pray for the baby (as I am) and be there to support your friend. 23 weeks is very, very early. As the mom of a former 27-weeker, my heart breaks for your friend, because I know what she is going thru. I wish no parent had to go thru it.
