Earlier this week we had Brecken's NICU Follow-Up Appointment down at Children's, and we only heard great news! They did a thorough evaluation using the Bayley's scale of infant/toddler development, and Brecken came out almost at his actual age for all categories. In Language usage, he actually came out a tiny bit ahead of his age. They said, "He is just a gem!" and "He is the kind of kid that helps our hospital statistics!" (They keep stats on all the preemies and run reports of the different hospitals. Children's is one of the top hospitals in the NATION for survival rates of the tiniest preemies, and were surely blessed to have that hospital so close to us!) He will return to Children's for one final eval in another year to check his speech, but I don't really anticipate any problems ;)
Way to go, Brecken! Your Mommy and Daddy are so proud of you!
