In 2015 I held my first born son while he took his last breath at just 10 days old.
In 2016 I sat and watched my second little boy scream for hours as doctors poked and proded him 15 times before getting his iv placed successfully in his scalp. I then lay next to my child's bed while his brain slowly swelled up till his eyelids were purple and driping goo...I still hear the beeping of the machines the alarms whenever he jerked his little foot and his heart monitor would fall off. I almost died making sure my boy was taken care of but if I had to do it again I would without a second thought. Im not just a nicu mom I'm also a picu mom and 100% proud. These babies are so much stronger than they're given credit for 💙 I love you my little fighter. # nicuawarenessmonth # nicu # picu # nicumom
