As we’ve been sitting at the hospital these past 14 days, my cousins and I realized that this is the exact same time of the year that we sat there for her 32 years ago and waited 4 long months for her to recover from her severely premature birth. (She was born at 6 months and only weighed 2 lbs. 6 oz.) She was born on May 14th, 1985, and was released from Cardinal Glennon sometime in mid September 1985, if I recall correctly. Her “new” re-birth date is May 22, 2017, and here we are, some of the same family members (minus quite a few loved ones that we have lost along the way), staying by her side every minute of every day waiting for her to wake up and leave this amazing hospital.
Never underestimate the power of a woman born in September shirt, hoodie, tank top and v-neck t-shirt
