Another Happy Birthday! by jenp

Another Happy Birthday!

Today is my third son's (and youngest child!) birthday! He is my miracle baby. He was born 5 weeks early. He and I both had a very traumatic birth. He almost didn't make it, he wasn't breathing, and neonatal respiratory did CPR and bag valve mask. I almost didn't make it and ended up in emergency surgery. He was born at 3:55 PM and I didnt get to hold him or really see him until 9pm.

He is truly a special gift that I am so grateful for every single day. We are truly lucky! ❤❤❤
That cake looks so good! Happy birthday to your son.

@sugarmuser @kali66 @bruni - Thank you ladies!
My gift is that he's here and I get to see him happy and healthy! Scariest moment of my adult life.

No wonder the birthday boy looks so happy - that's such a yummy looking cake! Best wishes to both you and him on this special day.

Great shot and great smile he has. You are both so lucky, I myself was born 12 weeks early in 1972 and weighed 2lb 1oz. 2 1/2 months later I was diagnosed with Reflux Nephropathy, which is basically a leak in the bladder affecting the Kidneys. I’ve since had 4 kidney Transplants.
I’m so glad that nothing more sinister happened and you are both here to tell the tale so to speak. Looks a lovely cake too 😁

bit of a rush on birthdays at the end of January in your family, when he should have been a March baby!

Such a blessing. And I don’t just mean the cake :)

Wow... What a great smile. I'm so glad you're both alive and well after such a traumatic beginning.

@bcegerton - you are truly a miracle as well! 12 weeks early in the early 70's, when they didnt have as much equipment to keep super preemies alive. You are a fighter for sure!!

Happy birthday to your baby, that's some cake!
