I would recommend this book to anyone. This story definitely demonstrates the courage and faith that this couple had during a very dark time in their life. It really shows how God was leading them and guiding every step of the way. I loved it

A Thank You From Florida Hospital

No one understands what it feels like to have a baby in the NICU quite like another NICU mommy! Over the holidays Rosie Moore stopped by with her family, including former NICU baby Kaleb, to give teddy bears to our current NICU patients. Thank you, Moore family!

Cold Flu and RSV Season

As a parent of a preemie baby Rosie Moore of 27  Miracles and author of the book A Story of Faith is aware first hand the importance of avoiding illness in her household due to the risks involved in her little one’s lungs.  Rosie is a registered nurse and has always worked in surgery and labor and delivery in the past and knew that hand washing was always the key to preventing infection spread.  But right after her little guy Kaleb was born, she knew it even more due to the delicate health of her 1 lb 10 oz baby in the NICU.  The hand washing became an even bigger part and to this day   will always remain along with the hand sanitizer.

Some may say, “relax you have to expose your child to germs at some point or another.”  Rosie Moore says, “really, did you ever have a baby in the NICU hanging on to life every day until the day he came home?  Did you sit countless hours in the hospital NICU wondering if a treatment he was receiving would help him breath on his own again?  Then don’t tell a mom of a preemie to relax and expose them to germs.” The world is full of germs and illness and yes we trust in God, but we also need to be prudent and avoid the spread of illness.  So if you happen to come across a parent of a preemie that asks you before they go to your house or you come to theirs if you are sick or to wash your hands before greeting her son or after greeting the dogs, don’t feel insulted, just say yes.  Here is what the CDC has to says on pets and washing hands

Florida Hospital most recently made an interesting jingle about hand washing.  It is funny, but you know what? It gets the point across…Wash your hands!!!

A Letter from A Preemie Family

During the RSV Season this article brings even more concern to families and why preemie families insist on proper hand washing.  This article was written by a preemie mom:

Dear Friends and Family,

Truth is, it makes me really uncomfortable to ask you to wash your hands when you enter the house.  I hate that I have to ask if you have had your flu shot and are up to date on your TDaP (pertussis) vaccination.  I am just as upset that I have to cancel at the last-minute because someone in your family, or our family, has the sniffles.  Actually, because we have limited exposure with the outside world, I’m probably even more disappointed to miss your company.

The last thing I want is for you to feel unwelcome in our home or in any way put out because I notice when you sneeze into your hand and then try to touch my son’s hand.  And do you know what?  In most cases, I agree with you when you say that colds are just a normal part of life.  I know you think I’m paranoid.  I understand that it’s embarrassing to be asked about your hygiene. I know your suggestions about immunity building are well-meaning.

I also must tell you, I hear your exasperated sighs and see your all-knowing eye-rolls at my requests.  When you respond begrudgingly, my embarrassment dissipates and is replaced with anger.  It makes me really angry that you could put your pride in your cleanliness and healthfulness over the life of this child.

what a medically fragile child looks like

You see, Owen is doing remarkably well and has overcome so much in his 20 months of life.  He is so much better than six months or a year ago, but the fact is, he is still a medically fragile child.

This week there have been so many top news stories about the thousands of Americans in the hospital right now due to the Flu.  In Minnesota, one healthy teen has died and another is struggling to live.  As a parent who has watched my child fight to live, my heart breaks for the parents of these children.

At the same time, I am alarmed for my family.

You’ve asked in the past how you can help our family.  The biggest way you can help is this:

  1. When we make plans to see each other, volunteer that you received your flu shot more than two weeks ago.
  2. When you arrive at my house, greet me and the baby and say, “I can’t wait to hold you, as soon as I get my hands washed”.

That’s it.  Those two simple steps will make me feel more support than any other gift you can give.

Maybe, like some say, “paranoid” is the correct word, but really, I don’t care.  I’m just trying to do the best I can for my son.  He won’t always be medically fragile, and while he is, I hope you’ll bear with my requests and support and respect my best efforts to love and care for this child who we all want to see succeed.

Thank you for your understanding, and sticking by our family during this difficult time.

Sincerely,

A Preemie Family
