Does anyone else's child have some kind of scar from their time in the NICU? Logan doesn't have anything other than the herniated belly button from the IV lines. I'm surprised, though. He pulled out his IV several times and it didn't scar.

Casen had the herniated belly button, but it went away and now it looks normal. Other than that he doesn't have any scars!

Addisyn has a scar on her head from an infiltrated IV, a tiny prick scar from her PICC and when she is older she will have one on her neck from her trach.

My son has a scar on his side from where they had to insert a chest tube to fix his collapsed lung. I still have nightmares of what he must of went through even though they didnt allow me in for the procedure! He was sedated but it still upsets me that he might have felt it!
