Our Thanks of the Month
April 2010


Name: Brigid

State: Victoria

Relationship to Baby: Grandma

Parents Names: Lucy & Peter

Premmie Baby(s): Davis

Premmie Baby(s) Gestation(s): 27 weeks gestation

Hospital where born: Royal Women’s Hospital

Length of hospital stay: 99 days

Why this loved one is so special:

I could not live without my mum! She is such an active part in Davis’s life in so many ways. The support she provided us when Davis was in hospital was incredible: from the unconditional love, the daily visits, getting me out for a coffee, doing my washing, cooking, buying lots of prezzies and supporting us financially…. I could just go on and on.

Now Davis is home, the support has not waned at all. I cannot thank her enough and honestly could not have got through the last year without her. She never makes assumptions or believes she knows better. She takes the time to listen and doesn’t trivialise things.

It is now so lovely to see how much Davis loves his grandma, he couldn’t have asked for a better one.
