The nicu

Has anyone seen the HBO documentary "little man"? Its about the struggle a couple had to keep their 25 week preemie alive. He was born at just one pound. He ended up having a lot of problems but survived through the end of the film when he was two years old.

The program was really good to watch. Especially because one of my best friends gave birth to a 33 weeker just three weeks ago. He'll be coming home tomorrow. Yay! Way to go little man. Way to go.

I couldn't imagine working in the nicu. But what a fulfilling job when you are able to help keep a little one alive. Thank you to all the nicu staff out there. You are simply priceless.

I second that! We spent 8 weeks in the NICU with our 29-weekers, and the staff made it as easy as it could be!

It's a really special place, one you can't even imagine. The things you see, the miracles you hold, the lives you save and the lives you lose stay with you forever. I'm glad your friend's baby will be home soon!

I have had the nicu on my mind a lot lately... given where I am on this journey. I am so thankful for people who willingly face those situations, even tho I am praying I won't need their services.

I haven't heard of it but it sounds like it would be fascinating.

I hope your injection procedure went well!
