as some of you may know and remember, little guy come home on a heart/apnea monitor. a couple months ago the pulmonologist (lung doc) that little guy sees told us that we could stop using it but it was our decision. we ended up keeping it a while longer because it was still alarming with apnea spells. while some of them may have been false alarms we weren't willing to risk it. the whole preemie thing had been so bizarre to us. the monitor was like our safety blanket. i should have posted last thursday, the safety blanket has been taken away from us. don't worry, it wasn't brutally taken or anything. we willingly gave it up. the monitor company did a down load of the monitor on feb 14th and from that day to march 20th, when they came and picked up the monitor, he had no alarms. it was a huge blessing. so he's been a week without it and he's doing great and so are we.
