While tweeting with my friend, @inkscrblr, I was reminded that this time four years ago, I was put on complete hospital bed rest. Just thinking of what was going on four years ago brought tears to my eyes. To be honest, sometimes those memories are so far behind, locked in the deep recesses of my mind. Just a memory. The fears and emotions were definitely real, but the end result is a happy, healthy, bright, active, busy,
sometimes challenging and spirited little girl.
Most of the time, I forget that she was so premature and I try to put the past in the past. Many times, those days, weeks, and months in the NICU seem so far away. Sometimes they seem like they never happened. If you see this vivacious, curious, strong
Errr…Strong willed little girl, you may not believe we even went through any of that.
Seeing posts and tweets that remind us of those early days does make me cry a little. They also serve as a reminder of the love, endurance, and strength we all have within us. There were days I thought we would never survive, but here we are.
