Count Your Blessings; Say Your Prayers

Some more perspective for anyone having an irritating day and complaining about it.

I have a friend who has had a difficult pregnancy. She gave birth to a son, her first child last week. Brett came 14 weeks early and weighed 2 pounds. I can eat sandwiches bigger than that. He will be in the hospital, if all goes well, for most of the 14 weeks he should have stayed inside his mom. Count your blessings.

Say your prayers. Let’s hope that this has a happy ending. Both Mother and Father are good people. Having a premature baby is dramatically hard. I cannot imagine how my friend will go on with her life if this should take a turn for the worse.

No complaining about little things. Not today.

    Man, that;’s right…and here’s hoping good things for the little guy.

  2. Please pass on my best to your friend. Being born at 14weeks is not idea but sometimes it just happens and there is no point wishing it hadn’t you will only send yourself crazy. My daughter was born at 27+5 so that is 12weeks and 2 days before her due date back in Jan 2006. She was born weighing 861grams or 1lb 14ozs she spent 8weeks in hospital which was a great outcome. She delt with varying issues while in NICU all of which most premmies deal with breathing, feeding, digestion, pda (heart duct that should close which in some premmies doesn’t and needs medication or surgery to fix) she is now a healthy 19month old girl who has no ongoing issues. At this stage she is meeting all of her milestones and excelling in some of them. Premmie babies are a unique amazing test to our lives but truly I wouldn’t give 1 second back of it. The most amazing people have come into our lives since that day and we were so very lucky.
    please take a look at my website i have set up for premmie babies. you can read other personal stories in the YOUR JOURNEY area and you can watch a movie in the OUR INSPIRATION of Airlie Fae’s first 12months and how amazing she is. pass the details onto your friend and tell her I am thinking of her and her family.

    best wishes
