evancaleb10 - oh, thank you... miracles do happen. He was sooo tiny. They told me he was that small, but I never mentally pictured what I first saw. I passed out trying to process the first sight of him in the NICU. Ever look at something that you think just doesn't make sense? That it shouldn't exist? It kind of felt like that... how could a human being live and be that tiny. He scored 8/9 APGARS! He did sooo well, it was unbelievable every day, kind of comical actually because it was so evident that he was a fighter. He tried to stand on his head in the incubator at 2 weeks old. He rolled out of his "bed" in the incubator at a month. He extubated himself twice and breathed great afterward on room air both times (telling us he didn't need that). And it got to where we couldn't keep an NG tube in him... that got yanked out too many times to count. At almost 2, he's still my busy little boy who loves to dance to music and do everything for himself.
