Meet Jax a funny, kind, and smart preschooler who was a micro-preemie born at 23 weeks. Now that Jax is older, the scariness of the NICU has faded, but we're still learning how to manage the lasting effects of prematurity including chronic medical issues, ADHD, and Autism Spectrum Disorder. This is our story of love, hope, and survival.
Picture Comparison: Our Family Then and Now
Our family on Jax’s birthday…it was not a very joyous occasion.
Our family three months later, on the day Jax was discharged from the hospital. Now that was a joyous occasion! He went home a full month before his due date, so he’s technically negative-one-month-old here.
Our family today…with our hilarious face-making 9-month old stud-muffin.
Oh man, what an adventure! I went into labor unexpectedly when I was 23w3d pregnant. Jaxson was born weighing 1 lb 8 oz. A tiny little peanut, but boy was he feisty. He still is! We love it now, but we probably won't when he is a teenager. I write about our journey and all other things that come with it, including a brain tumor. We look forward to "meeting" you - come hang out with us...we're pretty cool.
