Rainbow, my prayers and thoughts are with your family and little Spencer.
There have been so many advances in medicine for pre-mature babies. I've no doubt he'll be okay.

So sorry to hear this Rainbow!!! Many hugs & well wishes to your and your family. :goodvibes: for little baby Spencer!! :grouphug:
August 9th, 2009, 12:08 PM
Tiny baby for sure. My sister was only 2lbs when she was born. She was 3 months early. Spoiled rotten by the hospital staff by the time mom and dad could bring her home too. :laughing: I hope little Spencer is as tough and strong as his wonderful name. I can't wait to see some pics of him.
August 9th, 2009, 02:33 PM
Thank you everyone. :grouphug:
I know they get amazing care nowadays. :thumbs up It's just that one of my sister's other daughters gave birth prematurely to a tiny one and he ended up with cerebral palsy and I know that is weighing heavily on their minds. :o
August 9th, 2009, 02:40 PM
Little spencer and the whole family are in my prayers :grouphug:

Rainbow, I'm sending your grandniece :goodvibes:.
My friend had triplets, all at 1 pound. They are all 11 years old now and healthy....Doctors are amazing these days.
August 10th, 2009, 03:13 PM
Any updates on little Spencer Rainbow ?
I agree with the others , doctors can make miracles happen now a days.
August 10th, 2009, 04:20 PM
Rainbow like CPietra's friend my son was born at 28 weeks 1 lb - in neo care for 3 full months, not only did he survive he's over 6' played football, baseball, hockey you name he's so awesome ... that was 23 years ago miracle absolutely - combined with today's technology baby Spencer could very well be a quaterback :)
:goodvibes: please keep us posted in the meantime we will :pray:
August 10th, 2009, 04:42 PM
I also had a friend who had her baby almost 3 months early - although I don't know exactly how much she weighed, I know she was in the neo-natal unit for 4 months. She is now a healthy and beautiful 19 year old.
Good vibes and prayers going out to tiny Spencer and all your family!
