Today, I’m guest blogging over at Preemie Babies 101 about my biggest lessons learned in the NICU, and beyond. Below is an excerpt, but to read it all, click on ovah.
You’re doing enough. As much as I love my son’s specialists—all 12 of them—I sometimes leave their offices feeling dejected. I worry that if we don’t do this therapy, enroll in this outpatient clinic or run this test, I will have failed my child. And you know what? I’ve learned to trust my instinct. To lean on my love. I’ve learned to tune out the extraneous and hone in on the things that matter. My protective momma bear instinct has never failed me. I’ve pushed, asked and questioned when needed and I’ve ignored, nodded and moved on when necessary. In the end, it’s how much we choose to love, despite the odds, that makes all the difference.
