She has made so much progress. I’m looking forward to bringing her home.
My daughter Zoey was born at 31 weeks, weighing just 1 pound, 13 ounces. It was really scary. I had no idea what to expect. She has been in Bronson Children’s Hospital NICU for 42 days and now is close to four pounds.
I am at the hospital every day. I’ve met so many people here and have friends I will keep in touch with. The parent liaison, Ruth, has been great. She hosts dinners for families so we can get out of the NICU and meet each other. I also go to the scrapbooking sessions. It’s important because getting out of the hospital room just a couple of hours every week helps keeps you sane.
The staff has been great. They’ve been helping to make sure I know how to care for Zoey when I go home. It’s hard, but considering everything we have been through we’ve been pretty blessed to be here. She has made so much progress. I’m looking forward to bringing her home.
