I was born very early at 27 weeks gestation weighing only 1 pound, 12 ounces. I spent my first month and a half on oxygen, but was just taken off of my vent yesterday! Now, I’m breathing on my own, growing bigger and stronger everyday. I now weigh 2.16 pounds. It’ll be awhile before I am able to leave the NICU. I am learning to feed on my own and need to gain more weight before discharge. I’ll probably be in the NICU for Christmas. I hope to finally meet my big brother at home in January.
