23 Weeker Advice


I am a mom of a 23 weeker (born exactly at 23 weeks- his brother was born four days earlier and did not survive). He was born at 1 LB 5 oz. He has a vp shunt (from the hydrocephalus) and has had two eye surgeries (to eliminate ROP and Plus Disease). I've seen lots of posts from parents about their babies a few months or a year after they were born, but I would really like some information from a parents who had a similar situation to ours and has crossed the three year mark. If you would, please give me any information about what your experience has been like. I know no two babies are the same, but it doesn't mean they can't be similar. Plus, one can never have too much information. I would truly appreciate it.
