Both my boys were premmie - 4 weeks early and with premature lung disease.
They had to be flown out of Grafton and Goof went to Camperdown, Nathan to Sydney Childrens Hospital at Randwick.
It was a very stressful time. Watching your baby be intubated is not pretty and seeing them in those cribs is awful. The worst part was that I was not there with Goof - they only take one parent and his father went - so I wasn't there at all and was stuck in a maternity ward with all these new bubs for a week.
When Nathan was born, we knew he would have problems so I was more prepared but it was still awful. I took pics as the equipment came off each day - it was like an unveiling. Then when I got home, the film didn't work - that was the end of me, I had held up until that stage
I did watch the shows and they brought back so many memories that I sat there and cried along with the rest of Australia.
