Preemie Awareness Day

Today is preemie awareness day! Lucas was born at 34 weeks weighing 5 lbs 2.8 ozs. He was in the NICU for 3 weeks. The 1st year & a half of Lucas’ life was a roller coaster ride. Thank you Jesus for keeping Lucas’ brain protected while he had 26 successful surgeries in his 30 months of life. Feeling very blessed to have Lucas as our precious miracle baby!

Toddler

When did Lucas grow up into a tall toddler??? I want those baby days back. 🙂

Now, Lucas is 2 ft 11.5 inches. Basically 3 ft tall. Lucas went from being in the 10% for height in August 2014 when rickets were overwhelming his body. Fast forward 1 year, and his rickets are resolved and he’s in the 60% plus range for height! Our Endocrinologists (bone doctors) predict Lucas will keep increasing in the height percentages. Feeling blessed. Thank you, Jesus!
