I was born at 27 weeks and 5 days. My mommy was very sick and had developed Preeclampsia, which led me to have an early exit date. I was 2lbs 9oz at birth and needed a lot of help once I got here. I needed a blood transfusion in my first days of life and a machine to help me breathe. I also had a feeding tube and many IV's to help me get the nutrients I needed. As I got older everything slowly started to come off, I started taking the bottle and boob, then I began breathing on my own. I spent my first Halloween in the NICU. My journey ended after a long 8 weeks of care and I've been healthy and happy at home ever since.
