hi hun, just wanted to write to you to show some support. I also had a girl 6 weeks ago now and she too was 8 weeks early. She was also on cpap for a while and went through quite a few episodes with desaturations in her breathing. After four very hard long weeks we now have her home and she is doing champion. I totally understand what your going through even after 4 weeks i still cried as i was leaving the hospital but i always knew she was in the best place to be at the time.
Stay strong and hopefully the time will fly by and she will be with you at home before you know it. feel free to message me if you need a chat

Hi Tink, just wanted to leave my story for support
My little girl was born 6 weeks early and she only weighed 2lb 15oz. SHe was in the SBCU for 22 days before we got her home when she weighed 4lb 7oz
It's really hard leaving them isn't it ? But she'll be home before you know it, keep us updated on her progress
Good luck xx
