Did anyone see the ER episode?

Are you part of the NICU club? Do you have a child who is still struggling with the effects of being born too soon from preeclampsia? Share your concerns and stories here among parents who have been there.

I taped it but, I have been too busy to watch it yet. That sure is a big preemie on the comercial!

I started to watch the show but as soon as I saw that they were heading to the NICU I had to switch it.

This past Thursday the episode on ER focused totally on the NICU. It was good, but it seemed like the youngest preemie was a 35 weeker. I was hoping for a preeclamptic mom or at least a preemie that was smaller. It was still pretty interesting though...

mom to Cole Thomas -former 28.5 weeker (3-5-99, 3 lbs)due to HELLP and Madelaine Grace "Lainey" -former 29.5 (10-11-01, 3lbs 4oz)weeker due to Pre-E and had PIH with Elisabeth Rose (Ella) -37 weeker,born June 30th 2003 weighing 5 lbs 12 oz and beautiful.
