My son was born 3 months early.
I wasn’t ready to be a dad and my wife wasn’t ready for the baby to come early.
Everyone was taken by surprise when Michael arrived early. My wife and I didn’t know if he was going to ever come home from the ICU. He had a collapsed lung and he was having a lot of trouble breathing. When Michael finally came home from the hospital, he was four times and 4 weeks old. My wife and I had to be sure that the nursery was a clean and germ free environment, so we called a company that specializes in air filtration equipment. We met with a salesperson from the staff and we talked about our need for an air filtration system. We told the salesperson about our son and his medical needs. The salesperson didn’t try to sell us an expensive system that was not affordable. The guy told the two of us that we would be fine with a portable air purifier. The portable air purifier was very affordable and a great option for the nursery. At night, my wife and I let the portable air purifier run in the nursery. During the day, we put the portable air purifier in the living room where my wife and the baby spent most of the day. My wife and I were nervous for the first six months that Michael was alive. We worried every single night and day about his health and safety. It’s hard to believe that was almost 10 years ago, especially when we see our healthy and energetic boy running around the house with all of his friends.
