Our darling Ewan developed some health complications when he was born and stayed in the neo-natal intensive care unit (NICU) for 5 nights. I do not want to go into details here as the thought and memories of the episode still aches my heart. Throughout the ordeal, we commuted to/fro hospital everyday to visit, spent time and supplied him with my breastmilk. It was one of the most challenging times for me – recovering from childbirth and suffering from terrible hemmorhoids as well as pain from stitches down under. I’m glad we went through it with courage. My darling hubby was with me every step of the way.
According to the nurses at NICU, Ewan is a strong and loud baby, making the most noise in the nursery. We were lucky to have met caring doctors and hospital staff throughout this challenging period.
Although not a start we have hoped for Ewan, we believe his future is full of good things now that he’s all tried and tested! 🙂
