Hello everyone.My baby was born on April 3rd at 26wks 5dys weighing 2lbs even.She was on the ventilator for a week and now is breathing on her own we had complications with infections which was expected because i developed a uti that sent me into labor early.She was given atibiotics for about two weeks and the blood test came back negative. A few days before the test came back negative her twos began turning blue.I wasn't very concern because this had happened before when the iv line she had in her leg had infiltrated but it cleared afte they had moved the line.but it has been a week ow the twos are black and the foot is swollen.the doctor said he suspects it's an infection and started her back on antibiotics.I don't know what to think.I'm losing faith in my doctor who is suppose to be the best in the country,(I live in the Bahamas).I'm scared,confused and feel so helpless. I don't want my baby to suffer more than what is necessary. Has anyone been through a similar situation and what was the results.View Thread
