All I wanted to hear in those first few weeks was that he would be okay. A few close friends gave me that, and even some of the doctors were prepared to say it. It was what I needed to hear. And it gave me time to cope with what was happening without being constantly afraid of the unknown. Everything has turned out okay and he is walking and chatty and the happiest little boy I know. I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful son.
We are so grateful for all the help we got, even if all it was sometimes was that reassurance that one day the NICU would feel like a distant memory. Sending lots of appreciation to the amazing staff at FMC and RGH.
