My son Joshua

My son Joshua turns two on 11/18. He was born three months premature. My wife was 25 weeks pregnant when she gave birth. Full term babies are born at 40 weeks. When Joshua was born the doctors said he had a brain bleed. Brain bleeds can result in heavy complications that will last for life. My wife and I prayed and it turned out Joshua did not have one, his brain is healthy as any newborns. He has had five surgerys before he turned one. He is now a healthy two year old boy. He has amazed doctors, family, and friends. He required no therapy and had no complications.

Happy Birthday Joshua, Daddy is proud of you.

Re: My son Joshua

congratulations dude what a cutie !, families are where its at (as well as guitars of course)

five op's sounds stressful mate, I know cos my eldest was in the hospital so often I though about buying a parking space !!

Im still amazed that in the UK babies are allowed to be terminated at up to 24 weeks -

Good times mate !!!

Re: My son Joshua

I can't see the slide show from work, but I'm very glad to hear he's doing well.
I have a 3 and 1 year old and I'd lose my mind if something was truly wrong with them.
Happy B-day lil' man!
