Today I'm celebrating the first anniversary of my 29th birthday. As if being 30 wasn't hard enough, today is also the 2nd anniversary of Noah's PICU admission. A lot of preemie moms seem to really struggle around their baby's birthdate, but I was too sick at that point to really remember much. What I do remember is the sheer terror of giving my baby back. I fought for 6 months to keep him, willing him to come home, and then 3 days later had to give him back. Not the greatest feeling. Hopefully we won't be inviting the ambulance crew to my party this year.
