My First Week As A Father *emotional*

  • Published on:  Wednesday, August 1, 2018
  • Shortly after my baby Wes was born, he got sent to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). It completely tore me apart.

    I have been trying to figure out how I want to tell this story for weeks. I kept recutting this video, reliving the emotions. It has been hard.

    But it's a story I want to share. I hope that it makes others who have been through or are currently going through similar experiences feel less alone. I hope that it inspires you personally, and fills you with hope that life, despite its challenges, after all, can be beautiful.


    P.S. A HUGE thank you to all of the nurses, doctors, and administrators at the NICU and all hospitals. We appreciate you so so much.

    Hey, Ned. I'm a single mom of a son who was born premature with severe brain abnormalities. They told me he was passing away slowly so we did skin to skin. His stats started getting better slowly. We were put into the NICU for 9 days and then sent home with hospice. The best I've ever heard is that he would live to be two years old. Well his fifth birthday is in October and we're celebrating at Disney (he loves mickey and the avengers). Kids have a way of surprising you...continually. Here's the best a...

    Ned, I was a NICU baby. I was born at 23 weeks and expected to die within hours. I spent 3 months in the NICU. I recently celebrated my 18th birthday and am 100% healthy. You’ll be a great Dad.

    I just recently started watching Try Guys, so I'm a little late here. But man this video made me cry. I'm only 23, but I have two kids. They both had complications. My daughter was born 4 weeks early and couldn't breathe on her own. She was in the NICU for about four days - hooked up to a breathing machine with an IV in her hand. My son actually made it to four months before we found out he had a hole in his diaphragm, and his liver was pushing up into his lungs. The next thing I knew my tiny baby boy ...
