the preemie-sized plastibell. The really sick thing is it isn't a joke. They really do it to these tiny babies. Before I had a preemie myself, I knew this went on, but now it seems like I'm totally surrounded by it. My DS is one of 5 boys his particular room. 3 of the others are or will get cut this week. I was there today when one of them had just been done, and the nurse was showing the mom how to care for the wound. I nearly ran out of the room feeling nauseated. Seriously people. I do not understand how anyone can look at a preemie who has already been through the ringer with an incredibly difficult journey, and then put him through an elective cosmetic surgery. Where are these people's consciences? If not the parents, the staff should know better. Ugh, I cannot wait to be done with the NICU.
