Preemie News

25 Feb

So I’m not sure if anyone has been following the story of the family in Miami with the 21 week preemie. They baby was conceived with the help of fertility treatments and due to complications during the pregnancy was born early. This is considered to be one of the earliest surviving preemies known and is a wonderful blessing for this family. I can only hope that they have as much success with their newborn as we have had with Jeffrey. I realize that Jeffrey got to cook for a lot longer than this one but I think after you have a preemie, you feel a sorta kinship with anyone else that has one. It’s so difficult to describe to anyone who had a normal birth what it’s like to have a child in the NICU and the feelings that it provokes. I still keep up with the preemie group that I found online even though Jeffrey is doing quite well. It’s just nice to check in with people who’ve been there and get some support (or give it) from time to time.

    That’s great that you’re giving back support to that online group. It’s good for your karma if you believe in that sort of thing–which I sorta do, sorta don’t. Earl is helping to show me the way.

    It’s good that we have tv to show us the way. 🙂
