I am so glad that some Neonatal ICU`s are being improved. http://www.nytimes.com/2007/05/29/health/29baby.html?_r=1&adxnnl=1&oref=slogin&adxnnlx=1180792734-8KZfOTMjaK5l7xZYZSN/1Q
When my oldest was in the NICU I thought it was the most depressing place I'd ever seen. It is wonderful that little babies are being saved that might die without intense medical care, but its so hard to go from pregnant-one with your baby to being totally disconnected from your baby as baby is connected to wires and tubes. Keeping the baby close is good for everyone and its so obvious.
- I'm just a mom in the world. A crunchy Catholic mama of 6 trying to make sense of it all and stay positive. 5 boys here & 1 in heaven. One awesome man who I get to grow old with. I help new moms breastfeed. I`m happy. I don`t go to shows or dance clubs every night but I would if I could. Where`s the nanny? When I see her she`s SO fired! One of my boys is super sweet and sensitive, another one is a holy terror. I learn a ton from all of them daily. Like Nigella says, as any parent of small children knows,there comes a point in the day where you can`t go any further without a drink! I love cocktail hour. I`d like nothing more than to be with my family and some good friends surrounded by tropical plants drinking a margarita listening to the Eagles. I don`t care about trendy, I like that grungy 70`s vibe.
