Jason is just so awesome




Yesterday I was watching the show Maternity Ward or something like that on the Discovery channel. They were talking about how this lady was going to have a premature baby. I am always interested in listening because Jason was a preemie. I was listening and heard the ob tell the reporter or who ever it was that they do not allow super preemies to be born breeched (especially ones that are born butt first) because their heads are the biggest part of their bodies and the head will get stuck in cervix and die. Which was such an eye opener to me. For those reading this and do not know Jason was born at home (NOT PLANNED) 13 weeks early. Brian helped deliver him. Jason was born breeched butt first. I feel so blessed that nothing happened to him during the birthing process. He is truly our little miracle.They told us that he had 70-80% of surviving, but he had to make it past the first 48 hours. They told us that he would a ton of medical and developmental problems if he did live. Well, I guess he proved them wrong he only currently suffers from asthma which is not too bad. I am so thankful for all the doctors and nurses that worked around the clock and so hard to keep him alive.
p.s. sorry for the small pictures just click on them and they bigger.

That is so scary to give birth at home and so early. I didn't know that about you. I am glad that he is doing so good now. When was he born. I think he is about the same age as my 2nd Olivia.

Wow stephanie. I can just imagine how scared that must have been for you and Brian. He's such a great kid and so lucky to have you as parents. I used to take care ofo preemies back inthe philippines and I felt great when they make it through. Love you

I remember hearing about all that when it happened. What an experience Sis. Jason is awesome! From what I hear he's only getting better.

P.S. Jason must get his awesomeness from his mom!

You got me all teared up. I never saw those pictures before. I only saw pictures Mom took when she visited after he was home from the hospital.
