If you’re reading this, then my guess would be that your baby is in the NICU, because I reckon when you have a normal pregnancy and a healthy baby you would have just walked past this place, ignoring its presence.
Well that’s how I thought my pregnancy delivery would be.
Twins, double the trouble | double the fee | but little did I know that I would be spending 3 months in the NICU, lose one of them to God.
But, But I also got to take my 25 week baby girl home from the NICU, so the NICU will always hold a special place in my heart. Some people say that you will forget the place once your baby is home.
I will never forget the NICU. I will never forget how much Dr Krishna | Dr. Nandini | Dr Girish and Dr. Nayana and the junior doctors have done for our baby. Being a doctor myself I know how difficult it is to make a decision in such a situation.
I will never forget the NICU sisters who were like angels watching over my little one. Everytime I cried in the NICU they waited always and consoled me. At the end of the journey we developed a special bond.We would joke about so many things. Never thought I would laugh in the NICU> I always joke that my daughter’s first word would be ‘Kutty’ or something as she was always spoken to in Malayalam.
It’s the most stressful time of your life| It’s a roller-coaster ride but these tiny one are time-fighters who move mountains. Just hang on to these! Trust The Doctors! Trust The Sisters! Trust God!
Don’t get stressed over little things, like when my baby had a wound on her nose due to CPAD, I cried! I complained. It’s foolish to think of it now. Look at the bigger picture of taking your baby home.
A BIG THANK YOU TO THE – DOCTORS & SISTERS
