My 38 weeker was 8 lbs and spent 5 weeks in the NICU. He had a severe case of bilateral hydronephrosis (urine not draining from the kidneys) that caused all sorts of issues. Our daughter was 15.5 months old when he was born. I totally understand the feeling of not feeling like you have two children. Our boy has been home for 1.5 months now and it’s made a huge difference for everyone now that I don’t go to the hospital three times a day. On the tough days, I would always remind myself that his stay in the NICU is only temporary and that the NICU is the safest place for him to get better. Hang in there – you’re doing great!
