ex machina

great. the avalanche of studies continue to pour in. being that i was born premature and am left-handed it looks like i should just go get sedated because there's no hope. for the record, i was born at 24 weeks at around 2 pounds. give or take. in flint.
"They found that 39% of the premature babies had below normal IQs of 85 or less, compared with 13% of the babies carried to full term. The international average is only 16%.

Of the premature children, 61% had special needs or were "low achievers" in school, compared with 23% of the full term children.

And 28 of the 118 premature children were classified as having learning disabilities, compared with 11 of the full term children."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
