NICU tomorrow

I just looked at the schedule and I have my NICU rotation tomorrow. In case you don't know, that is the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. It is where the premies go. I've dealt with kids before but this is a whole different story. I will let you know on twitter how it went on my way home tomorrow. Wish me luck.

Good luck tomorrow. Many of your CF blogger followers are all to familiar with spending time in the NICU.

It's rough, but you'll be doing really important work there.

I never got a chance to say thanks to the RTs who worked with Seamus when he spent 10 days in the NICU so I'll say it to you. Thanks.

Good luck! The NICU is exactly where I want to work after nursing school! Those babies are precious, but I know it's a hard place to work too! You'll do fine!

Hi! I just found your blog from another cf blog buddy of mine. I have a son with cf who is now 5 years old. He spent 2 months in the NICU recovering from surgery due to meconium ileus. You will be doing some very important work and you will also be dealing with some very stressed out parents. What a hard but rewarding job. I really appreciated everything that the RTs did for my son while he was there. Good luck tomorrow!

Thank you for the encouraging words. I am excited and nervous at the same time. I will tell you all about my NICU experience this weekend.

Olivia was in the NICU for her first 10 days (also with the meconium ileus). We loved all the people that worked there and greatly appreciated the wonderful care they gave our daughter!
