Medicine and technology has come so far in the past 40 years or so that the
brilliant doctors are now able to save babies who were not considered
viable years ago. When my son arrived at 25 weeks they simply took him away
and put him in a humidicrib and left him to die alone, which he did, 4
hours later. Despite my pleas they would not bring him to me or let me hold
him - that was just the way it was back then. I wandered around the upper
floor from my room looking for the nursery, but was quickly put in a
wheelchair and escorted back to my room. I had a friend who was a minister
who dropped everything and came to the hospital to baptise and bless him.
He said he was perfectly formed. He weighed 1lb 10oz. I still think about
him and look at videos of babies around 25 weeks who have survived, or
died, just so I can get an indication of how he may have looked. It was so
different - and cruel - back then (1972).

My son Ben was born at 23 weeks in a hospital near Liverpool in October
1990. Now, aged 25 with two medical degrees, he has just published his
first book on premature babies .anyone interested in the story of how care
of premature babies has evolved over the last 130 years should read
Benedict Wills-Eve's newly released e-book on Amazon called ' 'boxes,
bubbles and babies'. It hardly costs anything and is the best work on the
subject available. Just type in Benedict Wills-Eve on Amazon for a link to
the best read you'll have for a long time.

What a beautiful little boy! I too am the parent of a former preemie. My
son wasnt quite as early as your little Samuel....my son was born at 27
weeks and weighed 2lbs 3ozs. I had a 10% placental abruption and went into
spontaneous preterm labor & delivery. He wasnt due until June 19 1997, but
was born March 20, 1997. He is a 6 foot tall 17 yr old who will graduate
high school next summer and is thinking of going into IT (computers). :)
God bless your preemies. :)

thank you so much for sharing Samuel's nicu journey.My daughter delivered
her micropreemie (25wks) on April 3, 2014. My granddaughter was born at
1lb 11oz, and the journey thus far has been an emotional rollercoaster. We
have heard all the possible conditions that she could face, and the power
of prayer is amazing. God bless you and your family and your beautiful
baby boy! This was very encouraging.

What a great miracle! I am so afraid for new mothers like you who will
not be allowed to continue to save their 24 week premie under the new
Obamacare insurance. It iwill be just too expensive and not cost
effective. Sad but I can see it happening in the coming years. I am so
happy that your insurance company paid for all the intensive care for your
beautiful little baby and gave him his chance to live and be raised by
loving parents! God bless you!

person he could feel , cry, breath with oxygen un ventilated at 3 days old.

or if you been raped etc then it should be in the first weeks not this
stage. sorry gone of topic but it gets to me after seeing my baby so small
but alive

cont'd - 1st shunt went in 2 weeks b4 we brought him home @ 5 lbs 14 oz &
nearly 8 mo. old. From that day until he was 4 yrs. old he had 11 more
brain surgeries which was when they put the 2nd shunt in, he also came home
with a feeding tube & heart monitor. He does have CP & Diabetes Incipidus &
has died once but he is barely impaired now that he's 5, he walks, jumps,
dances.. our biggest enemy has been putting weight on him.. so far so good
God Bless you honey, ya did good =) he's beautiful

Автор Whip Phreak ( назад)
cont'd - brain bleed is the scariest 1 4 me. I had 2 go 2 the hospital 2 be
with baby so he wouldn't be alone until Daddy could drive from the country.
And I got all the words dumped on me 1st thank God, I don't think my
daughter would have been ok that soon. But he did really well 2 for about 4
days. Day of the 1st brain bleed >5, 2nd >7, after that & until he was 19
wks old they just kept watching it & giving him blood. At 19 wks. they put
the reservoir in 2 make room 4 the 1st shunt. cont'd

Our little guy was 24 wks & 4 days, he was 1 lb. 14 oz & they asked us if
we wanted them 2 save him bcz of disabilities.. what kind of ? is that ?
Made me wonder if ppl actually say ""no". Watching this took me back, my
daughter has long blonde hair also & his NICU team was Life-Flighted 2 him
at the country hospital & then him & his team were life-flighted back 2 a
well known Trauma Center, while they cared 4 my daughter at the country
hospital b4 they could release her. cont'd

Such a moving story, you are a very bless family. Mom is GORGEOUS! Cant
believe our government allows people to kill children at exactly his age,
actually I cant believe they allow you to kill humans at any age,the most
vulnerable stage of your life.
