Big hugs.

Your SIL will be very scared and overwhelmed at this time. Best advice I can give you is to send her flowers and a gift for her daughter.  Do some reading about all of the “preemie lingo” such as what CPAP, Bradies, O2 sats, PBF.  Dsats, kangaroo care, NEC, ROP, etc..It will show her that she can talk to someone about the crazy and unpredictible lofe her beautiful daughter has just been thrown into. These days  the survival rate for 27 weekers is quite high. Fingers crosed she does not need intubation and has little issuces with sepsis. I wish your SIL daughter a speedy and uneventful journey through NICU. For the record, I had my first son at 24 weeks and watched my son fight for his life for four long months before he was well enough to come home… He is now nearly five years old and going great. xxxxx

sorry about spelling… stupid sticky keyboard.

Also there are some awesome preemie support groups out there for her. She will be able to find support and share experiences out there from mums who have gone or are going through the same thing. I believe March of Dimes in America have a good one.

mama and little one are in my thoughts, hoping both are okay! Nowadays you hear so many stories of miracle babies growing healthy even born earlier than that so I have lots of hope and faith she will be okay! Please keep us updated!

@pittgirl4:  They should be okay my son was born at 32 weeks.  More than likely the baby will spend at least a month in the NCIU which will be a scary ride for SIL.  

We spent 4 weeks in the NCIU.  It is hard but in the end coming home was the best thing in the world.

I am sure she will do fine.  I was born at 28 weeks back in the 80s where medicine and technology isn’t what it is now.  This baby is, I am sure, in the best hands.  Prayers and positive thoughts going your way.
