Keep a written record- I did not keep a written record, as I didn’t particularly want to remember the horrendous time I was going through. Some may find it helpful to keep a journal or on-line blog as each day passes. Some of the days I just did not want to remember. We have lots of photos, looking back now some of them are very hard for me to look at but I want to show Elijah one day what he has overcome. Whatever helps you, do it, I once saw a woman knitting at her child’s bedside, hay if it keeps your mind distracted for just one moment then in my opinion it is worth doing.
You’re doing great by the way, from a NICU Mum (who spent 9 days in NICU with Elijah in Sept 2014) x
