Why Should Your Children Be Recognized as Preemies of the Year?
Lilly is absolutely amazing. The doctor forgot to tell her she was a preemie. She came six weeks early (giving mommy a seizure to let her know she was ready to come out) and spent 10 days in the NICU. At first she had a little bit of jaundice but she kicked its butt early in her stay there. Before we could take her home she had to learn how to multitask when eating. Every brady she had made my heart sink but this little girl is a trooper. She doesn’t give up and blows through every obstacle that is put in front of her. This is why I think she is amazing. She makes me think “if this little preemie can do it, I can do it!” Her strength gave me the strength to get up out of bed two days after an emergency c-section so that I could get better to take care of her.
