When I was Maggie's age (6 weeks) I was hospitalized for strep throat and scarlet fever. I don't remember it (of course), but how very scary for my parents!! I can't even imagine. Luckily, the IVs in my little head and little heels did their job, and the long term effects were nothing but messed up teeth (from the antibiotics).
I'm so very thankful that Maggie has been so wonderfully healthy. She had no jaundice or anything, so we haven't need to deal with a bili blanket, portable oxygen concentrator, or any other medical equipment that would be so scary with a new baby.
