During our NICU stay with my daughter I became close with another couple, who has a 24 weeker (590g and 27cm). Even after my daughter passed away, I kept in touch with my little buddy and her parents.
...Well, tonight I am babysitting the little miracle, and I am SO happy to say that she is a perfectly NORMAL 14 month old. It is so amazing to see her doing everything a full-term baby should be doing at her age!!!
Just thought that I would share my excitement with you all. I know that the happy outcomes with micropreemies are few and far between, but they do happen!

How exciting! IT is wonderful when a preemie has a good outcome, isn't it. How are you handling things?
