NICU Reunion - April 2007

Some brave soul dressed up as this bear and allowed the kids to literally beat it to death! Abe thought he was really funny... he kept running up to "it" and hugging his legs or pulling his tail. Abraham thought it was great fun!!

This little boy to the Left of Abraham was in the NICU when we were there. I was able to spend a few times talking to the mom in the NICU. We talked about God's best and His will for our families. It was really neat. I don't think this little guy was as early at Abe was.

Last weekend Abraham and I went to the NICU reunion at the hospital. We were hoping to see the 2 nurses that took care of the boys. Unfortunately, Alice doesn't work there any more and Lauren was actually working. So we missed both of them. It was a bit of a bummer but we played with the other kids and talked to the parents. It was good to not have to feel like I needed to explain why he is so small - we all understand. Hard to remember that preemies come in all sizes and weights. Babies born at 36 weeks are considered preemie but they might be 6 + lbs.
Here are a few pics of Abraham at the reunion.

He found the wheels of the wheelchair great fun!

What a great idea to attend the reunion. Too bad you missed the special nurses that took care of your precious boys.
