When Ryan was born, the nurse that assessed him put down that he was actually 35 to 36 weeks gestation based on his weight & that she thought his chest muscles were underdeveloped. Because of this, he was required to have a carseat test. I went out & got Kissy's carseat. they put Ryan in it & connected him to a heart & oxygen monitor for an hour-and-a-half. His heartrate dropped below 70 during the test, so they sent him to NICU to be monitored. They have done an EKG & an ultrasound of his heart, but haven't found any problems. They did say it could be sick sinus syndrome. They are hoping it will clear up on its own. Once it has stopped dropping, he will have to stay for 48 hours longer. So we don't know how long we'll be here.
