HOLIDAY PROJECT – FAMILY 49

I was born at 27 weeks gestation weighing 1# 9 oz. I saw Mom for only a few minutes before being rushed to the NICU. I had a breathing tube and was too sick to be held at first. One of the best days of my life was when I was 2 weeks old and snuggled Mom for the first time. I’ve been in the NICU for 2 months and have had setbacks but I am STRONG and feisty! I’m recovering from pneumonia and getting oxygen from a CPAP machine. I’m growing and improving every day. Now, I weigh 4# 4 oz and am learning how to eat from a bottle. My Christmas wish is to be home with my Mom & my big sister.
