I have a problem. I fall in love with "my" babies at work and then I really miss them when they leave! I only have 4 shifts left at JPS so I haven't let myself get too close to anyone new in the last few weeks. However, I had grown quite attached to a baby who was in the NICU for 3 months. The little miracle baby with a big personality! She went home last week but now might get re-admitted for RSV... this virus will cause a cold in adults but for babies it's BAD NEWS. Lots of people are having babies right now-- when you visit the little one, WASH YOUR HANDS! Hand sanitizer won't help because RSV is a virus.
Please, please pray for "my" baby that she can fight through this just like she fought through everything involved in NICU life. She's such a happy, strong, sweet baby. I guess this is the downside of having a NICU cuddle-buddy.
"If one feels the need of something grand, something infinite, something that makes one feel aware of God, one need not go far to find it. I think that I see something deeper, more infinite, more eternal than the ocean in the expression of the eyes of a little baby when it wakes in the morning and coos or laughs because it sees the sun shining on its cradle." *Vincent van Gogh*
