One year ago today, we were on the 14th day of Drake’s NICU stay. We found out that he would have his PICC line removed after morning rounds.
One less wire, yay!
Of course, I also remember that this led to some slow weight gain, concerns about metabolic disorders, and 26 calorie/ounce formula (which he’s still on).
But March 5, 2012 was a day of celebration. It wasn’t the first preemie milestone we celebrated or the last, but it was one more footstep closer to HOME.
This was earlier than March 5th, but it showcases the PICC cuddle as Daddy goes to lift him for my first Kangaroo care with us all present. He was 6 days old.
