Nicholas came home on Sunday May 27 after his 17 day stay at two different Hospitals. Nicholas got the RSV(respiratory syncytial virus) after being home for only about two weeks. Nicholas first hospital stay was at Northridge Hospital in the PICU. That was a hard time. Nicholas had to be intubated and he had ups and downs for the first 3 or 4 days. Which was very hard for mommy after that Nicholas started to have better days and on Monday May 21st he was stable enough to be ex abated then on Tuesday May 22 he was transported to Tarzana Hospital where he finished all his antibiotics and was able to come home.
Theses pictures are of Nicholas the day before coming home.
So far Nicholas has had 2 ambulance rides and one helicopter ride. I think he is trying to keep up with Joshua who only had a helicopter ride to and from Children's Hospital.
Nicholas had to have a check up with our pediatrician so on Wednesday went to see him and everything looked good. He gained 4 oz in two days so Nicholas weighed 4 pounds 11 oz we were pretty shocked. Nicholas did have to get a shot and he did great.
Nicholas's head made it on the chart in the 5th percentile nothing else made it.
