I'm not quite sure what you mean "...is NO??", but I saw a show on tv about birth and one was dedicated to people who had babies during Katrina. They said they loaded preemies with travel vents, as best they could, or some with plain hand-bagging because they couldn't afford the room for all the equipment on these medivacs and rushed them to the nearest hospital that could. One mother had no idea where her baby had been transfered to for quite some time. She was understandably worried!

I'm a little late to this thread. DH and I are parents to micropreemie twins, one survivor, one angel. Our angel was born at 23w3d, weighing 1lb5oz & 12 inches. He passed before making it to the NICU. My survivor, Kyle was born at 23w6d, weighing 1lb1oz and 11.5". Kyle spent 6.5 mo in the NICU between two hospitals. The boys were delivered in Springfield, IL while we were visiting family for Christmas. We had Kyle transfered closer to home after 4.5mo, where he spent 2mo in that hospital.

Here is a link to Kyle's main page, and some of my favorite pics:

Welcome! What a cutie! I think they throw those at all of us but I think they are what you called them- scare tactics!

This is the most recent pic of my buddy. It's not the greatest likeness but it's funny because of how chubby he likes. I call him baby Chris Farley.
