"Some people never get to meet their hero. I gave birth to mine."- Supporting Prematurity Awareness
Today is World Prematurity Day. As most of you know, Brandon was born at 26 weeks, 1 day. It is a miracle he made it that far after I delivered his twin sister at a little over 20 weeks. Brandon weighed 1 pound, 14 ounces and was 13 inches long. He spent 12 weeks in the NICU and had his share of preemie issues- infections, anemia, blood transfusions, vented, on Cpap, and a cannula, on an apnea monitor, ROP which resolved itself, reflux, and other issues. Today Brandon is a very happy 6 year old. He always has a smile on his face despite what he went through his first couple months of birth. Most people can't say that their child is their hero but he is definitely mine.
