My Miracle Baby

My son was born at 24 weeks. He was born weighing only 1 pound.  Anyone who has had a preemie knows that 24 weekers normally don't make it that long. Only about 10% live more then a week. We were lucky in a sense that he did make it for 5 days before being told he had no chance of living. While my wife cried all day i had to plain for what i was told was the inevitable passing of my first born. By some miracle, and yes it was one, without the doctors changing anything they where doing, or even giving him any more help, my son got better. We spent the next 6 months in various hospitals. Being told one day he will need a trak just to breath and a g-tube to eat, then being told he will be ok. It has been the most emotionally draining time of my life. We almost lost him 2 more times before things got truly better. But now we are at home with new problems to deal with, but at least he is still here and fighting.
