I'm checking to see what's going on. The videos usually stay up for a long time...hopefully it will be back later today. I'll post an update later.

He seems like a hip, cool kind of doctor (the host). The other doc seems serious, but that's a good thing!

I could see bits and pieces of my experience in some of the stories presented.

How funny that just a few words can say so much :)

The hospital was great and I don't think we could have gotten better care. The program is actually a local cable TV program that the host/doctor does and the topics vary widely. I'm really glad I got the word about it and was able to participate.

This is great! Thanks for sharing! I'm pretty sure I was able to pick you out by your signature.

It sounds like a great place to receive care. I'm glad they do programs like this go get the word out.

Last month, I was fortunate enough to be able to participate in a local TV show where a local pediatrician did an episode on premature babies. He had guests from the local hospital (a neonatologist and the director of the NICU follow-along clinic) and an audience full of preemie families. Many of the mom's had PIH or pre-e and there are some great examples of micro preemies doing very well.

Thought some of you might find this interesting:
