  • go to the nicu if they will let you. have a look around. its gonna sound harsh, but his problems are minor comparatively. that's how i stayed sane when my boy was in nicu. he died twice, and still, his problems were miniscule compared to those other babies.
    prayer helps too. and a great bestfriend.
