So far, all the postings I have read about Ethan sound like something I could have written about Ian! This particular one about how "sick" he is brought back a particular memory. Ian was in the NICU for 14 weeks. He had one very bad yeast infection in his blood at 4 weeks. That was truly the only time I thought he would not make it. So, my jaw hit the floor when the Neonatologist was discharging him. I made the comment that he was going home on his due date and she said something like that is pretty amazing for a baby that was as sick as he was and has been through so much. I was floored. It just goes to show that when it is your baby, every little thing is a milestone and a miracle to be thankful for. He wasn't my "sick little baby" he was my "fighter". Please send my best wishes to your sister - I know what she is going through. By the way, my little fighter is now a perfectly healthy 27 month old. Miracles do happen.
Ian 12/26/01 - 26 weeks P/E & HELLP
