I'm going to be greedy and introduce 4 of my 4 preemies pictures of 3 now and will get some nicu pics and pic of scott now on pc later.

Here we have baby harley born at 35 weeks and 8.1lb he is now 7 months old he had a pnumothorax (sp?) and was in nicu for a week.

then there is Jack who was a 26+weeker and was 3lb who was in hospital for 6 weeks and then the next day stopped breathing and his heart stopped but we got him back and he spent a further 4 months in hospital due to cronic lung disease, a pda, 2 holes in the heart, reflux etc etc the list seems to go on, he has started his first day of school today and is now 3 and is nocturnal o2 dependant and has problems with his bowels so to see him today in his uniform was a miracle to me.

Then there is Karlum born at 34 weeks and was 6.6lb and is now 5 in october and started his first day of proper school today, karlum is autistic and hyperactive suffers with asthma but is a delightful little boy.

I also have scott who was a 27 weeker at 3.2lb he was in hospital for 8 weeks and is now a super fit and healthy 7 year old who thinks he is a teenager lol.

I love hearing these stories, of the ones who have grown up and continue to amaze with their progress. They've already proven themselves to be fighters and will take whatever the world throws at them.

Have to say, they were all quite big for preemies. Is that unusual? (Excuse my ignorance!)
