I was Google-trolling for a 2001 article by Gary Hamel when I came upon your blog.
Without being too forward, I just wanted to send my good wishes along to you.
I too had a strange situation:
A wife knocking on the door with pre-eclampsia and a 2.2 lb (28th week) premie in an incubator.
Just to reassure you about your situation, premies have been doing brilliantly lately. Our daughter, who is now 10 is on the swim team, enjoys outdoor sports like hiking, biking and ice skating, reads at two levels beyond her grade level, and argues with her brother all the time.
So, all in all we haven't though of her as a premie in quite some time.
Cheers and have fun, the years pass on too quickly.

hi ed,

thanks for telling us about your daughter. i too was a preemie ( 26 weeker, 2 pounds 13 ounces ) born way back in the dark ages, and despite what some might claim, i've turned out relatively normal; so i know that things can turn out o.k. given enough time, but that didn't make all the time in the hospital any easier :-)

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

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.
