I am the parent of a former micropreemie, who is also a surviving twin. After identical twin sister died at 27w4d, Daphne was delivered in critical condition and suffered kidney failure due to the blood loss in utero. She also had a congenital heart defect. She spent 5 months in the NICU and had open-heart surgery at 6 months. She continues to face feeding problems and some developmental delays. She is a professional patient, and a very happy baby.
