Hi guys! I usually post over on the student boards, but I had to peep in here to say THANK YOU! All you NICU nurses are soo awesome and do a great job. I wanted to post some pics of my kiddo who was a 28 wkr and is now 14 mos old.
HE is doing wonderful, and everyone thinks he is a miracle. He was about 2 lbs at birth...but was never sick, never had any problems (well the PDA which closed with the round of Indomiacin/Indomyicin?? sp). Never had brain bleeds or infections. Just a real strong healthy LITTLE guy. They said he was a feed and grow? Something like that. He came home after 2 mos (one month before his due date in Jan) without any medications/monitors or ROP. He never got sick his entire first year...no cold and no ear infections. HE was breasfed though *ahem*
This year in December, he got a runny nose.
I know you guys wonder about "your kids" once they go home, and I think that is sweet. So...here is one preemie mom saying THANK YOU for your hard work, dedication and all that. I just wanted to let you know how ONE case turned. My son is truly a blessing and miracle. I know this. I thank you, and the nurses like you :kiss his wonderful nurses as well.
Umm, lets see, he is 31" tall, about 20something lbs...has 8 teeth and has a small vocab of mama, dada, larlar
,baba, and his own version of ilove you. Well, if nothing else, here are a few pics, and here are the links to his photos. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, DON'T POST HIS PICS ANYWHERE.
thanks again ladies/gents.
