My boyfriend was born almost 4 months premi. with a 20% chance to live. He weighted only a pound and was the NICU for three months. The second day of his little life he had a stroke. His Brain was swollen and they had to put in a shunt to drain the fluid. He still has the shunt in but causes him no pain. He was supposed to be mentally retarded and not supposed to walk. He is now a healthy 18 year old boy who plays baseball and goes to college. I have never been so proud to have someone in my life like him. He is my miracle and i have never been so in love with someone in my whole life. =] Any personal experiences like this.

My ex-husband's son was a premie, he weighed 3lbs when he was born 2 months premature. However, he made up for it! lol He was 6'4" and 210 when he was a senior in high school, playing sports, rodeoing. So as you can see and as you know, the doctor's aren't always right about their predictions.
