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.
Jeremiah 29.11

Thank goodness for Grandma's

I was just thinking to myself last, I haven't gotten sick this more month and Spring is here and all will be good! Well, you guessed it! I woke up this morning with a sore throat. I always jinx myself. Anyhow, John had ST today and I definitely didn't want him to miss it but I also didn't want to go, being sick and contagious. Jamie reminded me how mad I would be if another mother came into the clinic sick exposing John to those germs. So, I called Grandma with an SOS this morning and she came to save the day. Mom, what would I do without you? I have to say my mother-n-law is just as helpful however, she has to juggle her time between 9 grandkids and work (she's amazing...I don't know how she does it) whereas my mom is retired (thank god) and loves to spend ALL her time with her FAVORITE grandson............heehee, her only grandchild I must add:) Craig, she could have more you know!!!!!!

Grams, I'm all ready to go!

Bye, Bye Mommy!
