I don't like defining babies or anyone by their short comings. Like I prefer to say the woman who is blind or the child in a wheelchair or a baby who was in the nicu.

It's usually not thought about how it sounds but saying the short coming first makes it sound like that is the dominant feature.

Like that autistic boy. Or the downs girl. It just sounds like a label instead of a small part to the whole child.

So I know you didn't think of it that way but it's something that can send the wrong message.

There's babies in the nicu but I think they are still just babies in general. :):)

Katrina, I realise the first one was to do with the brain (I'm assuming that's what you mean when you write Brian) but the second it seemed like you were referring to the baby, most people would refer to the baby when saying they hoped "it" (although they would be a nicer word to use) could get better and be like everyone else but I apologise if you hoped the brain could get better and be like everyone else, yes you would refer to the brain as it you are right (although it's a bit odd to hope the brain be like everyone else if you ask me).

My daughter was born with Hydrocephalus which is fluid on the brain and it also affects the spinal cord and one part her brain is dead , Saw the Nuro team and she now has communicating Hydrocephalus and signs of autsim. Ive had three premmie babies and all of them have being in NICU , and all of them have had major medical issues but all doing well in there own way . All premmie babies are all little angels and there all little fighters there gods little angels from the heavens
