My daughter turns 3 on Sunday... Do I even need to complete that sentence? You ALL know what I am feeling because you have all felt it, too. As I go through the preparations for her party, I get weepy because I relive everything that happened. I thank God everyday for our outcome, but you know the bag of mixed emotions I have right now. I am so thankful I found the PE forums because you all let me cry and held my hand and offered hugs and made me feel normal again. Thank you all.

Happy 3rd Birthday, to your daughter! What a blessing we are reminded we have when we celebrate the day our lives changed forever! My HELLP baby turns 3 at the end of the month and it amazes me how I still think about the experience so much and how much it has impacted my life! Like you, I am so thankful for these forums. Have fun celebrating!

Mine turned 16 a couple of weeks ago. Every year, at 7:34 on July 12, I pretty much still cry on cue, or at least get misty-eyed. This year, she wasn't even home; she was in San Francisco at camp!

I still remember; her birth was quite traumatic for us both and we both bear lifelong scars and challenges as a result. And, other than the days when I would cheerfully trade her in on another model, :roll: , I am very, very grateful for the gift of her (and my) life.
Mom to Rebecca, now 16 and honor student. 37-week, two months in NICU for her thanks to NEC and meningitis. One month in hospital for me, HELLP syndrome and severe hyper-reflexia. All healthy now, more or less!
