This week Brenda is joined by Liz LaHaye of Edmonton, Alberta Canada. Liz went into early labour while she was home alone with her two young children. Her husband was a six hour drive away and she had no choice but to leave her kids at home and be taken by ambulance to the hospital. Her son, Francis, was born shortly thereafter, a “micro-premie”. At one pound, 15 ounces, he was so small that she dressed him in doll clothes! They spent the first 96 days of his life in the NICU. Listen in and learn what life was like for Liz and her family and how they are all adapting to living with Francis’ disability. Liz shares the importance of support and her perspective on what parents who have children in the hospital need from family, friends, and the very health professionals saving the lives of our children.
