My mommy had me at 26 weeks gestation by emergency C-Section. Since the day I was born in December I have been in the NICU. When I was transferred to the NICU, I had two blood transfusions and was receiving some help from a breathing tube and a feeding tube. After a while I realized I was strong enough to breath on my own so one day I pulled my breathing tube right out to prove to everyone else I could do it! Since then I continue to breath on my own, and I’m also gaining some weight. I’ve got to keep growing and learn how to eat on my own before I’m ready to go home with Mom and Dad.
