Truly Grateful

My son is still in NICU because of the stress all his organs have been through since he wasn't getting enough oxygen in the womb. He is doing better everyday and might get off the breathing tube today! When we went to see him last night the nurse showed us what would replace the tube. She showed us on a very premature twin. Let me tell you my heart broke in half when I saw this baby, she was so small you could see all her bones and her twin was just the same. I know we all are going through such a hard time with our little ones but this just made me so grateful for all we have. Our support system has been great, the nurses are simply angels, the doctors are amazing and just the things that we are able to do today for this babies. My thoughts and prayers are going out for every baby that is having a hard time. I hope all goes well for those babies and their families.

Yay, for progress! The Nicu is a very sobering place. In the same instant you can be heartbroken and grateful. I have respect for every parent who goes through a Nicu experience.

Tara- I can't even imagine what that is like knowing he'll be in there that long. I will be praying for your little boy.
