Let the Celebrating Begin!!!!

Last NICU Follow Up Appointment!

Well today the children had their very last NICU follow up appointment at KU!  It seems silly to us because they really have never been behind.  They follow all preemies until 2 years of age.  (They say most children born premature will catch up by the age of two)   I believe if there are …
