8 months ago I had a 2lb little boy. He was born at 26 wks. He went through alot, seemed like the surgeries were never going to end. We had to go through alot to get where we are. Now he is advanced in some things and a little behind in others, just like alot of kids. The thing is that if anything a preemie has to be strong enough to take on anything and I think that is a benefit. I wouldn't change any part of it.
