That’s T just a few days old in his NICU incubator in Miller Children’s Hospital’s “Fat Farm.” That’s the room where the babies graduate to (or spend their time in) if they are large enough to not require more specialized NICU care and/or treatments. T was receiving special fluids as he hadn’t received the required nutrients from my placenta during his last several days (possibly weeks) in utero. He was breech and his positioning was such that my placenta became rapidly depleted and cut off in utero; he was born 5 lbs. 10 oz. but dropped to just 5 lbs. within 24 hours after birth. Needless to say, it was one awesome day when T moved from his more specialized room to the Fat Farm!
