Today is National Prematurity Day. I find it incredible that is is also the day we brought our 33-weeker home from the hospital after her 10-day stay in the NICU! 5 years ago, we got the good news that Audrey was well enough to come home with us! The emotions that instantly flooded me: relief, nervousness, excitement, fear! She was so little & had to come home on a heart monitor. Having already had a ‘normal’ infant, I knew the hard work that was ahead of me, but I also knew it would be compounded by her prematurity. I was right. But we made it (thanks to lots of help from family & friends who showered us with love & support)! And today, we celebrate 5 years since Audrey came home!
