Hello, and welcome to the Premie Power blog. I hope you find my thoughts cogent, coherent and most of all, interesting. I have a passion for Neonatal ICU and in particular, caring for premature babies. I found my passion at around 40 years of age...a bit late, but better late than never, they say!
I am a Registered Nurse, working in a Level IIIB Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in the Rio Grande Valley city of McAllen, TX. We care for the sickest of infants, from 24 week premies to full term babies that need only temporary support.
Many of the babies that I have had the pleasure to have under my care (and their parents) have touched my soul, and I will carry the memories of those precious humans to my grave. I remain in contact with a few of them, and relish the rare chance to see them, either through pictures or out about town. Many of them, I will likely never see again. Too many of them are spreading their angel wings in heaven. ALL of them are special to me, and will always be a part of my heart.
Thanks for stopping by and reading my thoughts, and I hope you enjoy your time here.
