As most of you know, my little grandson, Timothy, was born almost 11 weeks premature back in April and has been in the NICU ever since. He finally got to come home yesterday! We’re all so happy!
I had thought that once he reached his due date and everything else (weight, heart-rate drops, etc.) was ok, that we were home free and he would be the same as any other newborn. But apparently preemies’ immune systems are still more vulnerable than other babies even when they reach full term status. So he’ll have to be isolated for a while, except for the multitude of follow-up visits with various therapists and doctors.
But we’re definitely rejoicing at this happy long-awaited major milestone! And since so many of you have prayed with us for him, I wanted to let you know.
