Little Nicholaus a real fighter

AT ONE month old Warwick's very own little fighter is still going strong as he battles his way to the end of his hospital stay in Brisbane.

Nicholaus Logan McCulloch was born eight weeks early by emergency caesarean on March 3, weighed only 1225grams and measured 39cm long.

First time mum Erin Andrews said Nicholaus was doing well despite a small setback.

"At the moment Nicholaus is still in Brisbane and he will be for a little longer yet while he overcomes the breathing setback that he had," she said.

"The doctors had to put him on a machine to aid with his breathing but despite that they are really happy with him.

"Before Nicholaus can be moved he has to be taken off the machine helping him breath which will hopefully be by the end of the week but it is hard to know for sure.

"However if a bed doesn't open up for him at the Toowoomba Hospital he might come straight home from Brisbane.

"He has gained enough weight to do so and now weighs 2.140kg."

Miss Anderson said her and fiancé Scott McCulloch commute at least two times a week and can not wait to have their son at home.

"Sometimes my step-mum and I are able to travel more so we make the most of that," she said.

"It's always hard not being able to see your child everyday though.

"But as long as staying where he is means his condition continues to improve I am happy."
