Book Synopsis
Don’t give up. Elijah never did. This NICU baby came out at 29 weeks and 900 grams. Then he had the never to drop more weight. How scary is that?
But Elijah demonstrated to his family and friends that he is strong, he is determined, and that we had nothing to worry about. If there was ever a story of courage, Elijah’s story is it. This is also a story for nurses, doctors, and hospitals – there are families connected to those wires, not just readings.
Eljiah’s story is told at first through the dad’s blog that he began on wordpress – NICU Dad. Then facebook posts of both parents are intermixed in between. Through social media, you see Elijah grow and you see Elijah overachieve. There were some scary moments along the way – 4 ear surgeries to remove a cholesteatoma. Overall, there were blessings and joy.
Elijah will never again fit the physical description of a NICU baby; his health, his height and muscles, and his school work are well beyond any parent’s dreams. However, in his parents’ hearts, he will forever be the NICU baby that taught them how to endure, how to love each other through the worry and stress, and how to keep moving forward.
Read this story if you are a NICU parent; a NICU nurse, doctor or staff; or just want to see the growth of this young man. It was written for Elijah but it is meant for all that need a laugh or some hope.
