<i>Zavier is the picture of health-strong, alert and happy-not what you would typically expect for a baby born 14 weeks premature. Zavier was delivered on September 24th by emergency C-section at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital. His mom, Lisa, remembers every detail like it was yesterday.<br><br>
"I was admitted to the Cape Breton Regional Hospital because I was having contractions. The plan was to air lift me to the IWK but everything happened too quick.""Within what seemed like minutes, the doctors said they would have to deliver the baby here or we would lose him. I was terrified. I remember one of the nurses sat down on the side of my bed and cried with me." He arrived weighing in at 2lbs 3oz-"I remember them saying not to panic if I didn't hear him cry-but he did and hearing his tiny boice was a miracle," Lisa continues. That was the first of many moracles that would mark the beginning of Zavier's life. Doctors planned to have him airlifted to Halifax as soon as he was stable, but that never happened. He stabilized quickly and he was able to stay at the Regional.<br><br>
"We were so grateful that we were able to stay home in Cape Breton, close to family and friends."<br><br>
Zavier spent two months in the hospital. "The nurses were amazing. I would call day and night and they were always there to reassure me. We would arrive for a visit and they would have colouring books, crayons and stickrs for my 2 year old-Zander. They would take pictures of all Zavier's firsts, like his first bath, and have them taped to his incubator when I arrived. They were unbelievable. I can never repay them for their kinkness."<br><br>
Zavier is the first 26 week old baby to receive all of his treatment at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital.</i><br><br><a href="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q150/mom2my2boys2007/lisaandzav.jpg" target="_blank">http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q...lisaandzav.jpg</a>
