Hi, My name is Jennifer and I'm the proud parent of a micro preemie. Raven was born at 26 weeks, weighting only 1lb 8oz. She has been through so much in her first months of life. I have tried to stay strong for her. but I am almost at breaking point. She was intubated for 7 weeks. in that 7 weeks I found out she had a brain bleed, swollen intestines, immature lungs. At 5lb 9oz I found out she has chronic lung disease, pulmonary hypertension, reflux and apnea. I am alone with no one to speak out to. this is my release.

Hi Jennifer, congratulation on your angel. i understand what you are talking about. My princess was born on 28 weeks and she was suffering with lot s of problem also. unfortunately these kind of problems are very common for babies born sooner than 30 weeks. my LO had brain bleeding and we did surgery and .... finally 2 weeks ago she was discharged from hospital after 110 days!!! keep yourself strong, these days will finish and our preemie babies will be strong and healthy. I will pray for your princess.
