Those of us who have had babies or children in the NICU or PICU can only imagine the terror these poor parents must be experiencing. I remember the horror parents felt when they would arrive and their baby had been moved without the
ir knowledge--the first thought was always that the baby had died. (This never happened to us; we were lucky that way.)
Can you imagine how these parents are going to feel when they learn their children have been moved, and they do not know where? And what about the micropreemies who are on high-frequency ventilators, like Chris was for 6+ weeks? He wouldn't have survived long without the ventilator. It just breaks my heart to imagine this scene.
When I posted this on Facebook, one of Chris' nurses, Sheila, said this:
"I remember the power going out in the old unit. We had to hand bag for about 20 minutes. Horrible! Can't imagine how the nurses are coping in such a terrible situation. My heart is pounding just reading this."Please keep these babies, their parents, and their caregivers in your thoughts and prayers tonight and in the coming days, along with all the others who are being affected by this horrible storm.
