Spencer’s Story … Derek, Jenifer and Spencer Arndt
Unexplained Pre-term Labor … “Your baby might live.” “Your baby may have a chance at a normal life.” “We want your husband to see what happens in the NICU.”
Prematurity & the whole family The nightly NICU separation “that stretch of road” At Home “Is it time for medicine?” The Six-Month Quarantine “Family Day at the Doctor’s Office” Lasting Germophobia “Did I hear somebody sneeze?”
Surfactant therapy NICU We were there when these helped save Spencer Both have roots in March of Dimes efforts!
When the MoD beat polio: First: Care, comfort and therapy for victims Next: Defeated the disease outright For prematurity: Spencer is a healthy one- year old today because of the care, comfort and therapy he received Many of tomorrow’s babies can may not have to go through that at all
Spencer this winter … “… he may have a chance at a normal life … ” Thanks, March of Dimes!
