Oh my gosh !
I am sending strong healing vibes and love to you.
You know, my younger sister was was born 3 MONTHS premature, that's right, she never even entered the 3rd trimester! And this was over 20 years ago. Today she is a very hearty, healthy athletic, tall and beautiful girl.
Welcome baby Asher and congratulations to you!! ((hugs)) on his early arrival. Going through the same thing right now with our little guy and it has proven to be one of the most difficult challenges I've ever faced. I hope your NICU stay is uneventful and mercifully short.
