Nikki - I miss seeing you around! I'm so thrilled at Ethan's progress. I still remember edging you on with the gestational age is most important diatribe I went on and on about.

Big hugs to you and Ethan!

Hi Nikki

I am so happy to hear how well Ethan is doing. I have been keeping up with the updates on his carepages also. I think you have already helped so many of us here. Your story gave me hope. Hope that after losing my daughter I wasn't sure I would ever get back again, Ethans story is by no means what you had hoped it would be, but he is doing so well now and you have found the strength and courage to get him to this point! You are an amazing mommy and woman and THANK YOU for sharing your family's story with everyone!

Nikki, you and Ethan are amazing! You must be the proudest mother ever. I am bewildered that after all you have been through, hope is the first thing out of your mouth - I feel really happy to hear this message. I wish Ethan a lot of luck getting off the vent soon.

Hes is so beautiful its rare I found someone that has goin through more than I have I have a son at 26 weeks 1 lb 10oz 14 inches long he was on a vent about 2 weeks then on cpap and then on oxygen when he was a month old then about a month old he developed NEC in which I was freaking out bc babies usually dont get that when they are a month it usually happens within a few weeks here i found out that one of the nurses didnt tell me that he was out of breastmilk and they gave him formula which his little belly couldnt handle I was devasted but with the help of a fantastic surgeon who saved his life by giving him a colostomy that has already been reversed he had it for about 4 months ew and he just recently got his hypospadius and circumsion done at 11 months but 8 months corrected and the day before christmas he has a bilateral inguinal hernia fixed also so he is doing good and im glad to here your little one is to I know you lost your daughter to NEC and it just makes me realize how luckly some of us are and I will keep you in my prayers
