Anika, 22 days old

June 21st, 2010

Starting 19/6/2010 she drinks 15 cc / 3 hours. And yesterday she weighed 740 gr! Yay.. that’s quite a progress.. keep going my little fighter! :) I couldn’t stop smiling since the nurse told me her weight..

Her oxygen saturation is reduced to 70%, the nurse said it’s one of the weaning process.. hopefully she’ll be off ventilator soon so she’s gonna be freely doing things without worrying the ventilator will be out of its position :(

The most important thing is I really hope to be able to her in my arms soon, even only in the NICU I’ve never held her once.

Anika, 18th day

June 16th, 2010

Alhamdulillaah, she weighs 680gr now.. Adding 20 gr from her last weight. She still drinks 12 cc / 3 hours. Her oxygen saturation’s still low so the oxygen supply to her blood’s still high, today it’s 80%. Her Hb’s increasing to 12.3 so the doctor said there’s no need for transfusion.. yay! Today the nurse came to me telling me she needs an ultrasound for her head, hope everything comes out okay.

Anika, 15th day

June 14th, 2010

She’s still in NICU. Her last blood test showing that her trombosit’s increasing from 102,000 to 350,000 but her leukosit’s also increasing from 8,000 to 17,500. The most worrying part is her Hb which was only 11. The doctor said he will take another blood test tomorrow, if the Hb’s dropping to 10 then Anika will need a transfusion :( .

My beautiful rose

June 5th, 2010

Anika Raissa, my beautiful rose.. Was born on May, 30th 2010. Weighed 650gr. Even with insufficient nutrition in the womb, she survived more than 7 months there! Subhanallaah.. The doctors said my umbilical cord’s very small, so she suffered a severe IUGR.

Now after she’s born, she needs to stay in the NICU for months until she gains another 1.5kg and manages to breath on her own. All I can do is just pray for my baby. Even with her tiny figure, she’s so lovable and I’m craving to hold her close in my arms soon..

My prayer for you my beautiful rose.. May Allah gives you strength and health, so you can come home to us, to the people who love you.. Amiin.anika
