I mentioned that we chose the name for Renny that means “reborn.” Not only did she look good when she was first born, but she IS good. In the Ultrasound page I talked about how a week before she was born the high-risk specialist looked at her ultrasound and told us Renny would be a “very, very sick baby,” and basically told us she would have many problems, implying brain and/or other organ damage due to her extreme hydrocephalus. This doctor made her outlook seem so grim, that my mother retired early from teaching so she could be there to help out.
Ren was one of the healthiest babies in the NICU.
My mother went back to teaching.
Yes, she has some challenges, but Ren is a normal, healthy little girl.
She always has a smile on her face. She makes everyone feel special. And she is special in so many ways.
