Nikki, you and Ethan are amazing! You must be the proudest mother ever. I am bewildered that after all you have been through, hope is the first thing out of your mouth - I feel really happy to hear this message. I wish Ethan a lot of luck getting off the vent soon.

Hi Nikki

I am so happy to hear how well Ethan is doing. I have been keeping up with the updates on his carepages also. I think you have already helped so many of us here. Your story gave me hope. Hope that after losing my daughter I wasn't sure I would ever get back again, Ethans story is by no means what you had hoped it would be, but he is doing so well now and you have found the strength and courage to get him to this point! You are an amazing mommy and woman and THANK YOU for sharing your family's story with everyone!

Nikki - I miss seeing you around! I'm so thrilled at Ethan's progress. I still remember edging you on with the gestational age is most important diatribe I went on and on about.

Big hugs to you and Ethan!
