Parts 6 and 7 will describe many of these government plans and benefits in detail.

I have researched mitroprematuricy some, but that article really does a good job of summarizing it. Having it all right there really shows just how amazing Olivia really is!And really, Jodi, you did a great job with her these past months. I know it hasn't been easy and it will most likely be even harder once you start exposing her to more situations and more people, but being as vigilant as you were is part of the reason she is doing so well. A really selfless act, one that has kept your daughter healthy and allowed her lungs to heal and her body to get stronger. Well done!And it will be June before you know it! But until that time, if you don't feel comfortable taking Olivia somewhere don't feel bad about it. Your instincts have been spot on thus far.Kerry
