Blackberry #2 came home from the hospital exactly 1 year ago today. When he came home he was still pretty tiny: 2.2 kilos and 46 cm-s! He spent 51 days in the rollercoaster called NICU. He had good days and bad days. He was diagnosed with PDA, he had feeding issues, they were thinking he had NEC, he got several blood transfusions…, but for the good news: he was never intubated, he didn’t get a brain bleed and he didn’t develop ROP in his eyes. Today is his Nicuversary (l year of being out of the NICU) 🙂 So here are some photos of Blackberry #2:
The first 2 lines appeared in May 2012.
Then his ultrasound at 27 weeks.
A pregnant picture of me, 2 weeks before he was born.
His first photo at day 1.
Then the last 4 photos are taken 1 year ago today: The midwife dressing Blackberry #2 before coming home.
His empty Incubator where he lived for weeks.
Blackberry #2 in his very large snow suit (it was size 62 cm-s).
And finally all my boys at home 🙂
Happy NICUversary Blackberry #2!
