I work in a neonatal ICU. I’ve had the joy of doing this off and on since first starting at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston in 1990 right out of nursing school. I love my job.
I took care of Kasen off and on for a few months in 2016. He was a super tiny little guy and went through the usual course of maturing his body systems to the point he was able to be discharged to his parents.
Thanks to the propagation of social media, it is now easy to keep up with little NICU graduates as they grow and take joy along with the family at various stages of growth. I have one such moment that occurred in the last few days I want to share with you. This is shared with permission.
Lindy and Rob decided to do the obligatory professional family photo shoot. Lindy then posted a super cute picture. I initially glanced briefly at the picture and thought it was a nice normal family newborn photo shoot. But then I looked again and locked onto Kasen’s expression.I have no idea what the photo shoot cost, just putting prices out there simply for humor’s sake. I know that a picture like this is exceptional. What a priceless photo!
