Watch Now Peru vs Denmark My First Week As A Father *emotional*


Shortly after my baby Wes was born, he got sent to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). It completely tore me apart.

I have been trying to figure out how I want to tell this story for weeks. I kept recutting this video, reliving the emotions. It has been hard.

But it’s a story I want to share. I hope that it makes others who have been through or are currently going through similar experiences feel less alone. I hope that it inspires you personally, and fills you with hope that life, despite its challenges, after all, can be beautiful.

-Ned

P.S. A HUGE thank you to all of the nurses, doctors, and administrators at the NICU and all hospitals. We appreciate you so so much.

I was born prematurely I was hooked up to oxygen tanks, my IV didn’t go in right so that impacted my life in a big way (long story) ,I had to be attached to lots of wires for 5 months my parent barely knew what they were for, I have had lung issues with lots of stuff but my parents know what you’ve been through anyway Congratulations ????????

  4. You’re both amazing parents. ? NICUs are great, but I’m biased since I stayed in the NICU from the time I was born (Aug) til Nov ‘96. So happy tech has come a long way since then.

  5. $100 says they’ll do something retarded like leaving that baby in a hot car, it’ll die, and within 2 minutes they’ll make another video about it.

    I give it 3 years.

  6. My cousin had to go into that extra section because she was too small, weak and underweight she had to be under constant care. She had a twin sister but she died in the womb because she was even weaker than my cousin

  7. I was born 4-5 months early and my mom said when i was born they had to take me into this helicopter but it was only there because this guy had a heart attack but they chose me over him because he was old but he ended up living (:

  8. Putting aside the fact that babies that are born at home don’t need the car seat test BECAUSE THEY’RE ALREADY AT HOME. I understand why preemies are born in hospitals, higher risk, makes sense. I understand the car seat test is necessary for preemies once they’re born at a hospital because the parents then have to transport the baby home safely. BUT considering the baby was deemed perfectly healthy before the car seat test, what I don’t understand is why it was necessary to put the baby in the NICU. His oxygen dropped & they put an oxygen mask on him & inserted an IV, why was it necessary to do that in the NICU? Couldn’t they have done that in the room they were already in? Couldn’t they have done all that and then let Ariel hold the baby? Why did they have to put Ned & Ariel through seeing all those sick babies & them thinking their baby was sick too? Were they not able to get the baby’s oxygen level up fast enough? Did they have to perform extra tests? Does failing the car seat test imply that there are other issues? Or does it simply imply that healthy babies that are that small shouldn’t go in car seats? Like why not just wait till the healthy small baby is 5lbs before releasing them from the hospital? Can someone with medical experience please explain this to me?

    If you have to (because of high risks or complications), or choose to have your baby at a hospital there should be no pressure to leave quickly. It seems like the hospital policy is, “If we can’t put your baby in this dangerous device so we can kick you out after two days there must be something wrong with your baby” (for this I blame terrible medplans, not the hospital employees). Keeping a family with a healthy, yet small baby a 3rd or 4th night to make sure travelling is safe wouldn’t seem like so much of a problem (for the hospital or the parents) if hospital care was covered under a proper medplan. Why does our society have to pump so much unnecessary fear into labour & birth? Even healthy successful births?

  9. I’m not a parent…but I remember when my little sister was born and in the NICU…I can only imagine how terrifying it is for parents. It sucked for me because I couldnt go in, I wasnt yet old enough to not have the potential of getting all the other babies sick. I could only watch half of this because of the reminder of that time period and how emotional that memory makes me. I’m sorry you had to experience that but I’m glad he turned out okay in the end!

  10. You seem like a great dad already! ?
    I have to get my husband to vlog and be comfortable in front of the camera!

  11. My twin little brothers were born really early and they had to be in the NICU for a month. My whole family of 5 stayed in one of those little courtesy rooms the entire month, it was crazy. I was 7 and it was flu season so I didn’t even get to touch them or be in the same room as them for over 2 and a half weeks until one kind nurse snuck me and my siblings in. Don’t wish it on anyone, but I had heelies so those hospital halls were like a little girls dream skate park

  12. God bless your little one. My son was a preemie by 4-6 weeks…4 lbs 1.5 oz…back then (1976) this was cause for great concern, and there was only one NICU in IL back then, if I’m remembering right. Yes, it IS a very scary place. He did thrive and flourish, thank God. And thank you for posting this.

  13. I’ve never really liked little kids but that video made me cry what a cute baby I’m so happy for Ned he looks so damn happy ???

  14. I thought babies didn’t actually produce tears until at least two weeks…wow, ned that’s an insane thing to have to go through. I’m glad little Wes is okay now.

  15. I can’t remember the last time I saw two people who were so excited to be parents and were filled with so much love. As someone who sees only when children have been mistreated, this just makes my heart overwhelmingly happy. Congratulations on your beautiful baby

  16. My cousin went to the NICU because she the artery to her heart was almost blocked so her heart wasnt beating right so she had to have a surgery. It was the worse moment of my life and the unit was really heart breaking

  17. 22 and 13 years later, I can still recall every emotion, every sacred moment, of my children’s births. You never forget. Its will be imprinted on your soul….on your heart….until the day you die. ❤❤❤

  18. to me its kinda amazing to see people like this guy so happy with their marriage and child i could never do that, to me a wife+child in my life= a living hell-hands down to u buddy

  19. NICU momma here – definitely a scary time – thank you for sharing your story <3 Wesley is the cutest little thing ever!
