My preemie is 6 yrs old!

Not sure how it happened but my little preemie is now 6 and about to start first grade :eek:

I am Margaret, mom of Robbie who was born at 36w1d. At 24 weeks we discovered that I had pregnancy induced gallstones (which were huge) and Robbie's feet were at my gallbladder. Over the next 12 weeks I was in and out of the hospital needing pain control. I was generally on morphine which I hated but I was vomiting so much from the pain and my diabetes was not staying in control. My OB finally decided to induce me, after 73 hours of labour my munchkin was finally born. Robbie weighed 4lb 12oz and was 183/4". At 6, he is about 45lb and 45".

Just born
