Hi all! My son Asher was born at 28 weeks and 6 days. He spent four months in the NICU at Vandy, and he was on a vent for over half of that time. He was born on March 13, 2008 - due date was May 30 - and he finally came home on July 20!

His premature birth was a mystery since I had not had any complications with my pregnancy. Around the time he turned one, we found out that he has a genetic condition called CFC (cardiofaciocutaneous syndrome). It's very rare - it's estimated that there are less than 300 people in the world with CFC. Asher is quite delayed (at almost 2 he has yet to crawl or talk), but he's such a happy guy.

I would post pics but I'm too new.
Wife to Chad (est. 6/4/06) and Mom to Asher (est. 3/13/08)
