Methodist Women’s Hospital held its 4th Annual NICU Reunion on Sunday.
NICU families came back and reunited with hospital staff, physicians, the NICU care team, and other parents they may have met during their NICU stay.
"If it wasn't for the NICU staff here, I don't think we would even have him," said Prairie Parker, Micro Preemi Mother.
Parker's son Cole was born weighing just one pound nine ounces. She said he wouldn't have survived without the doctor's and nurses at Methodist Women's Hospital.
Families also came to show off how big their NICU baby(s) have gotten!!!
"It certainly is a challenge," said Lucas Negus, father of quadruplet's. "It's a lot of fun, but it's a lot of work at the same time. They are at a really fun age right now, we are chasing them all over the place. They are learning to talk, and climb on stuff, and cause all kinds of trouble, but it's a lot of fun."
The Garcia quintuplets were also there.
"It's, you are busy, busy all the time," laughs mother Bianca Garcia.
One-hundred-seventy NICU graduates attended, including:
-1 set of quintuplets
-1 set of quadruplets
- 5 sets of triplets
- 25 sets of twins
One-hundred-twenty-eight families came to reunite with the staff. It was an afternoon to connect and celebrate these babies as they thrive.
