Qays is free of infection

Alhamdulillah...finally the infection has cleared off. It was serratia species, whch at its worst may cause meningitis. Thanks to prayers from friends and family, we made it through.

He is in his second dose of Indomethacin today. According to the nurse in charge, he would be taking the drug for 6 days, then the PDA would be reviewed. Hopefully it will be closed by then and he wouldn't need a second round of Indomethacin. If he does, there will be a two-week break before they could restart.

Sometimes I feel like I am asking too much from God, but there's nothing else that I could do at this point.

On Wednesday, for the first time, I held my son in my arms. Two weeks after he was born...

There's no words to describe how I feel. I so wanted to kiss him but I was scared that I might cause him to have another infection, so I had to be content with just rocking him in my arms for about 15 seconds while the kind-hearted nurse cleaned his incubator. I was even afraid to talk, in case my breath carry germs...

Then last night the same nurse allowed me to hold him again...for about 10 seconds...but those were the best seconds of my life...

I still cry...but I'm taking this better now.

I want my son to recover soon, so he could come home and be with us...because I don't know how much time I have left...since little nodules have merrily emerged where my left breast used to be...and nausea a constant companion...
