The hardest thing I ever faced in my entire life…
After a month of bed-rest and hospitalization, steroid injections and IV drugs to stop my labor my babies were born at 28 weeks.
When my babies were born the first thing the doctors, nurses and many of you who reached out to me said this is going to be a very bumpy road and just take ONE DAY AT A TIME, while in surgery I was in a cloud the only thing I remember is trying to look over the green sheet to see if my babies were ok. On April 6 at 12.28pm my Gianni was born weighting 3.1 oz and measure 14.3 inches. My Nicco was second only weighing 2.11 oz and measure 15.1 inches. They were so little….and they were both crying.. that sound was the most beautiful sound I have ever heard.
The first few days was all positive with no major complications.
Then we get news that they have PDA, jaundice, breathing problems, eating difficulties and the list goes on...a baby’s NICU (intensive care) stay is like a roller coaster ride, with ups and downs, triumphs and setbacks they were in the NICU for almost 2 months.. Bonding process is hard when you can’t hold your baby and that as a first time mother was extremely hard 😭 I remember the NICU days like it was yesterday but I am so grateful that my babies are so big and healthy now!
There is no words I can find to say to all of the people in the NICU that cared for my babies. It was amazing You should be thanked every single day for what you do for a living. THANK YOU!!!🙏🏻
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
