So, Isabel had another bradycardia today, after 5 days without And it was a really bad one. My husband was holding her at the time and he's never been holding her while it's happened (because I'm a baby hog . . . . . . )

Anyway, I've told him in the past "You can see it happening before the monitor goes off" and he's always told me I'm crazy. Until today. Afterward, he said, "it was like she was dying in my arms" and "I've seen animals die before and it was just like that".

It is scary when it happens, no matter how many times it happens, you never get used to it. The first sign is usually that she goes from wide awake to suddenly falling into a deep sleep. Her whole countenance changes. If she is having an apnea at the same time, the skin around her lips starts to pale and turn blue.

No matter how "normal" they tell you it is for preemies to have this happen, it's still scary. Every. Single. Time.

That would be scary. I think I would be shook up too.

It's a bit hard because they thought she would have outgrown it by now. I do wonder how much it has to do with the extra vessel in her heart, if at all. I just want to understand why it's STILL happening. I know she will outgrow it eventually. I will say that even though it scares me, it's not shocking to me anymore because I've seen it so many times. I feel bad for my husband right now because this is the first he is realizing just what this problem is.

How scary for both of you. I do hope you get some answers and it stops happening soon.

That sounds stressful. I hope that these issues resolve soon. My bf had a 24 weeker 15 years ago. It was a scary stressful time she only weighted 1 1/2 lbs. But she is such a beautiful smart teenager now you would never guess she had a rough start.

I can't imagine how scary that must be to witness. Thinking of you and Isabel and hoping those bradycardias finally stop.
