Hello... remember me? Update time! :-)

<t>First I have to say how sorry I am to be away from the forum for so long. For the past seven years, I have been blessed with a job with a lot of down time & ease of use of the internet, which I used quite a bit to stay up to date here. However, in September, half of our federal funding was lo...

Re : what should i expect?

<t>Good luck! I hope you find the support here that you need to get through this. We have all been right where you are now. (well, not exactly... I had to deliver at 28 weeks!)<br/> <br/> Look at the thread at the top of this forum, Hints for New Parents. I think it gives a lot of great advice that ...

<t>It'll all be over before you know it. I remember it was hard thinking of Aaron going w/o food, but really it wasn't that long. He was about 1 month past his due date when we had his UGI. The test really helped me understand what was happening. You could really SEE the reflux happening on the x-ra...

Re : How do you survive that 1st birthday?

<t>I couldn't believe I was still so emotional (that's out of character for me anyway) THIS year, for Aaron's second birthday. I think, as preemie parents, we are always going to see our "babies" as the little miracle fighters that they were back in the NICU. Even if they are talking and rolling som...
