Hello everyone!!!

  1. Hi guys, after I can't even remember how many years I'm finally delurking and introducing myself. I've loved this site and decided it was finally time. As you can tell by my name I'm the proud mother of a micro preemie, born at just 24 weeks earlier this year. He's home after 15 weeks in the NICU and believe it or not he's healthy and happy . He's also my inspiration while going thru the first semester of my ADN program and STILL working full time as a CNA. So far I'm making it but...don't tell anyone, I hate my job and I just pray I can hold out until December. Once again hello and I look forward to getting to know everyone.

    Thank you for such a warm welcome! Yes, my little guy has been thru a lot but when I look back on it now I have to say that we had a good NICU experience. When he was born he weighed 1lb 8oz and he spent only 6 weeks on a vent and went straight to Vapotherm. Now he's up to 15lbs and perfectly fine. I know only time will be able to answer a lot of my questions but he'll always be my blessing.
