A preemie mama that I follow recently posted this on her blog. It rings so incredibly to true to me and probably to all moms of preemies. Even though some of our kiddos may look "normal", their preemie problems can follow them for a long time. In our case, bad lungs. All three of ours, but especially Noah and Addison, have lung disease. They will probably eventually outgrow it, but in the mean time, we need to try to keep them healthy. Something as simple as a cold could put them back on oxygen, back in the hospital or even back on a ventilator.
Tatum, hope you don't mind. But, you said it so well. I don't need to reinvent the wheel!
