Happy and Healthy
Each year, former patients from The Nebraska Medical Center's Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) return to the hospital. Their parents meet up with others who understand the unique challenges they've survived and also talk with the nurses who helped care for their babies when they were at their most fragile. Patients attending this year's event ranged in age from a few months old to into their teen years. 2013 was the first of many NICU reunions for Raylynn and Aubrey. Both girls spent some time in the NICU after being born prematurely. Today, both of their moms say they are happy, active little girls. Each of the more than 100 families attending the reunion have similar stories of survival and of overcoming odds.
