|We brought a cake to the NICU to celebrate Veronica's due date - and also to thank the doctors and nurses.|

Today is Veronica's due date which really is something to celebrate when you think about it. Almost 4 months ago, when I was admitted to the hospital and before she was born, the doctors cautioned us about Veronica's chances of survival and we learned about nearly every potential complication she could face in the NICU. And being born so early, she had a higher probability of developing the most serious complications that preemies can face. But she has done remarkably well. And although we don't know what challenges are ahead of us, we will always be grateful that her NICU journey went as well as it did. I know it's not over yet but we are so very close and reaching 40 weeks was indeed a milestone. Happy due date, Veronica! You've come a long way baby!
