SumJackass07: Fark you subby
SumJackass07: CSB time:My daughter was born at 29 weeks. And came home at 37 weeks after recovering from a bout of sepsis. After watching her blood O2 levels drop before our eyes in the NICU we were understandably paranoid when we got her home. We looked everywhere for a preemie sized, or even infant sized oximeter, but couldn't find one that didn't require a $6000 hospital grade machine to attach too. I looked at the Smart Sock, but it was just starting development. For the first 6 months our solution was to wake up and check the bassinet multiple times a night, and use a video monitor during the day, and try and guess from her coloration how everything was going. Those first few moments when it was my turn to check were terrifying. Culminating in the scariest night when she had a severe asthma attack and had to go to the hospital even after an albuterol treatment. That sock would have been a godsend.tl;drOne of those monitors would have given me a lot of "peace of mind" with my preemie. Fark you subby.
