Support and Care

Jacobi 1Jacobi was born at 30 weeks weighing only 2 lbs even and 12 1/2 inches long. We were in the Mercy NICU for 87 days.

Although I stayed at the Ronald McDonald House for only about three weeks of our NICU stay, it was a get away for me and my family when they could visit. Also the House allowed me to use their laundry facilities when I had no way to go anywhere else. The support and care the House gave us was amazing.

Jacobi will be turning one on February 18th. He is small but thriving and doing amazingly well. He loves crawling around everywhere and discovering this big world.
