A short post tonight because I am exhausted after this past weekend and today’s packed schedule.
I spent all day yesterday at the Navigating the Journey Through Childhood: A Parent/Provider Conference which was organized by Preemies Today to celebrate their tenth anniversary and World Prematurity Day. I’ve mentioned previously what a wonderful organization Preemies Today is. The conference was excellent and exceeded my expectations. The information and topics presented addressed current and relevant aspects of preemie parenting life. The sessions were so interesting, I had a hard time choosing between them.
On a personal note, the conference was held on the hospital campus with Charlie’s second NICU. It was in a separate building but it was still strange to be there. A couple of the session rooms had the same wall paper as Charlie’s NICU room and it brought back some memories. Being there was nowhere near as tough as going to her first NICU reunion. It merely felt odd to be on that hospital’s campus and not go through my established routine.
After the conference, Charlie and I had a girls night eating chips and beans. She did well. Because so much work went into her feeding, I am thrilled each time she tries to eat.
