This is the amazing story of our micro preemie, John Craig. He was born on November 30, 2005 at 24 weeks and 5 days gestation. He weighed 1 pound 8 ounces and was 12 inches long. John is a true miracle and an inspiration to all that meet him!
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.

Deja vu!

The past two Sunday's have looked frighteningly similar. Yep, you guessed it...another yucky bug invaded our home. Seriously, what are the odds that my healthy, never sick, little boy would come down with 2 completely different virus' (and an ambulance ride to the ER) in a one week span? This time I did take him to the pediatrician in fear he had an ear infection. Ears and lungs checked out fine but his throat was full of blisters and he had another fever to top it off.
So, I have had a legitimate reason for abandoning my poor little blog for the past week. No worries though.....the unwelcome visitor is on his way out (we hope) and all will be back to normal in the Birtch home (once we all get some sleep!)

Dorthy and Wags always make things better!

Still looking cool....even when feeling cruddy.

We LOVE Motrin...

...and Tylenol!

Poor John! I'm happy to hear he is on his way to feeling better, and I hope the bugs stay away from now on. Good thing Dorothy and Wags were there to help! The Wiggles were a HUGE it in our household too for years! It's a little hard to admit, but we've seen them in concert 3 times! :)

Motrin and Tylenol are my kids' best friend whenever they're sick.
As for me... I'll stick to the morphine. Oh wait, they only give that to you after you've had a C-Section. Guess that isn't OTC...

Glad he's on the up and up now!
