The first few weeks were by far the scariest moments of our lives. Would he survive? What would his life be like? Would he be a normal child? My husband and I were unsure of what the future would bring. Each day we spent staring into the incubator seemed harder than the last. But Chase refused to give up. He fought to live the entire 74 days, 13 hours and 9 minutes he spent in West Boca NICU!
Today Chase is a happy boy who battles many obstacles on a daily basis. The lung disease that he has requires him to stay inside most days and keeps him from doing the daily activities the average three your old does. His Cerebral Palsy holds him back from being able to communicate with us, and to play with his big sister, but most of all just being a kid.
People often ask how do you do it? My response is there is nothing in this world that I would not do for my kids. Chase's smile and laugh is infectious. When I am so down and unsure, one look at this boy's face lets me know it is going to be OK!
