" Rhett Lee pprom at 27+6 delivered at 29+6. on bed rest in hospital then at home for two weeks before I started to have an infection. I thought it was the scariest longest two weeks of my life but then my little guy was in the nicu for 68 days. Each day felt like 36 hours instead of 24. I have two older kids so spending time at the nicu and spending time with them while my husband was gone on the road as a truck driver was like I was being torn in multiple directions at once. My advice would have to be. Ask questions. Don’t be afraid to ask the exact same question multiple times. I felt so ridiculous because I’d ask the same question about the monitors and what a Brady was or what the middle number is but I was just so focused on watching my son breathe that I’d forget what they said as soon as an alarm went off. be sure to talk to someone about your feelings and what’s going on. Find a support group to share milestones with and fears and dreams. It’s scary and it can feel isolating if you let it." - Amanda Jeppesen Anderson
