The Continuing Adventures of SuperPreemie

a non-Shoshanna post

Posted on: December 22, 2004

This is getting a lot of press, but I thought I’d post a link just in case anybody hadn’t seen it. There’s a little girl who was born a week before Shoshanna, at 26 weeks gestation, who weighed 8.6 ounces at birth. That’s less than 1/3 of what Shoshanna weighed… Intellectually I knew that, but the Yahoo article I linked to above actually has a picture… I’ve been seeing bits and pieces of info about her over the past couple of days (first from Jess, who was the first to send me a link). It’s amazing to me that such a little person is doing so well, and I hope that she and her twin sister continue to do so. The article says that both girls are maintaining their own body temperature, but I’m skeptical that a 2#10 baby is actually doing so. *shrug*
