Summary

For many parents, the NICU is an initiation into the medically complex world. Medical terminology is thrown around with assumed understanding, and tubes and cords protrude their precious infant.

Beyond that, the emotional rollercoaster endured pushes many parents past their limits—and yet here we are.

In this solo episode, I share a bit about what Kimball’s NICU experience was for us, with memories that are relatable for my fellow parents of NICU babes, and eye-opening for the less experienced.

This was a good one. This brought back a lot of memories, and there is a lot of these details that I forgot about. Thanks for sharing these personal stories.
