Video of Baby Born Prematurely Making It Through First Year Will Melt Your Heart
My son Craig, who is now 24, was born about six weeks early. He was in the neonatal unit at Eastern Maine Medical Center for three-four weeks and received incredible care.
I saw this video and those first-year memories came flooding back to me -- from the first time that my wife held him, with all the tubes, to bringing him home on monitors and frantically running into his room to check on him when the monitor started beeping. There was also the pain at night, leaving him at the hospital, but knowing he was in such good care, and calling every morning to get his weight at 5 a.m. He was four pounds, 10 ounces when he was born.
This little preemie was just under one pound, five ounces. Click and watch a mom's love :)
