March 2022 – Preemie of the Month

Preemie: Lenox Sanders
Gestation at Birth: 26 weeks

A miracle and blessing wrapped in one. – Linda Lewis

I found out I was pregnant at 23 weeks while getting a physical. Immediately, I was told to go to the hospital for an ultrasound. Once I got to the hospital, I was told I was 23 weeks and 5 days and that I was having a boy.

Omg I was shocked! I couldn’t believe I didn’t know there was a baby growing inside of me! At 25 weeks, I had another ultrasound scheduled and my baby wasn’t showing up where he should be in the ultrasound. I was told by the doctor that my baby was due any day and that I had to be on bed rest until he came. I was rushed to the hospital and my son, Lenox was born a week later at 26 weeks. What a crazy 3 weeks!

Advice to parents: Keep faith high and pray faithfully.

What life looks like today: Lenox is now 2 years old, fully potty trained, fully sleep trained and he can ride a pedal bike.

Lenox can count to 10. He knows his entire name, he can name all colors and he can put on shoes by himself and he can undress himself.
