sandy85:  not a mom of a premmie, but just wanted to congratulate your little one for being such a fighter!  It’s incredible how much a little human can accomplish.  I am a premmie myself 🙂 i am sure my mom and you have a lot to relate.

My son was a premmie…hard to believe it now at 14 years old and 6 feet tall (and still growing). I won’t ever forget walking up every hour and a half for the first 8 months to feed my tiny son though!

I was born 2 months early. My family definitely never forgets the experience, and often remind me that I wasn’t expected to survive. And if I did survive, I was expected to have mental retardation and never function past a 6th grade level, if that. They tell me how I fit in a shoe box for a women’s shoe, and in the palms of their hands. I was 2 lbs. I seemed to develop okay. I’m now a doctor. I had asthma all growing up, but it wasn’t diagnosed until I was 29 because of the non-traditional symptoms. I wish I got some height (I’m 5 feet tall), and I’d love to blame my preemie status on that. But I think it was more my mom’s genes.

Previous posters, may your children grow to accomplish their dreams and great things!

This is a beautiful story! Sadly, my daughter was a preemie and had many complications [many of which I’m sure your daughter faced as well], she passed away when she was 9 months old. It’s always wonderful to hear of these beautiful babies pulling through!
