Time is up

Well we have come to a close on Nicklaus' time at home.  With bated breath he will be going to daycare this Monday.  Being that it is still RSV season and the fact that he is a preemie, we are concerned and praying that with all the fighting to survive this little one has done so far that he continues on this path of health.  It has been extremely difficult living life with a preemie, one that was as sick as him when he was born.  People do not realize and really can never understand what we have endured not only over the past few years, but the last few months. 

Preemie's are know to have a host of issues, but born sick like Nicklaus, there are a whole host other issues that no one tells you about.  Nothing that we can not get through and nothing that should last forever.  The neurological development in my experience is the hardest.  The developmental stuff is common and they almost always catch up.  What is scary is not knowing what triggers him, what stresses he has, how long it will take to overcome.  We have come a long way.  He has come a long way.

He had his debut today with the Daycare.  He loved all the teachers and overall did very well.  Until he was just done.  Screamed the whole way home and is having screaming bits throughout the day.  Very strange.  I will be so happy when he is over this stage- and have no more worries about how he is going to handle things. 

In the interim we day it one day at a time, and pray for the best!  Everyday is a marked improvement and we are so proud of all his little accomplishments.
