I am still fighting for you my baby

A year ago today we brought my Down's syndrome home from the hospital after an 8 day stay in the NICU. He came home on oxygen and monitors and medication. We were new to being parents of a baby with unique medical needs. We met with multiple doctors and therapists those first few weeks. It all felt a bit overwhelming although we were so grateful to have him home. We knew how blessed we were to have such a short NICU stay.
To think of all that he has been through and all that we have learned and how much we have grown this year, well… it makes me a little teary eyed to be honest.
It has been good to sit here and reflect on this past year. The good AND the bad. I am continually trying to process things and pick up the pieces of who I once was and put myself back together. Only, the pieces will never ever fit together like they used to. And that’s ok. My new weaknesses and triggers- they are the scars of what I have been through. The battles that I have fought. Some of them, I am still fighting.

Down's syndrome

Imagine that in 1 year, something you did not know anything about, which may even have seemed scary, can become even everyday. It becomes a completely natural part of your life and you can not even imagine the thought of being without it. So it is with Down syndrome. It makes you grow as a person, you learn to see and value things in a different way. One becomes humble appreciating other things than before. You learn to see the little things in life and appreciate them. When Down Syndrome came into my life, the words joy and love took on greater meaning than before. My whole life changed, for the better. Why? Yes, I became a mother! Love from Sweden ❤️🇸🇪

Thank you for these amazing thoughts. We just started this exact same journey 6 weeks ago. 13 days in the NICU, and my wife and I feel the exact same. It’s good to hear what a year in looks like. Stay strong! Hudson is such a cute boy!!
