Y was born at Saint Francis Hospital in 1987 at 2 lbs. 15oz (32 weeks).
Y's mother visited the NICU Staff annually after her son was born and Y has kept with tradition. Every year, for 31 years, he comes to thank Buna and the NICI Staff.
The thank you care reads:
With heartfelt thanks to Buna and the rest of the NICU Staff –
You make the world a better place for all those lives you touch.
Hope all the good care you give to others comes back to you.
Although the thank-you visits are annual, the feelings of gratitude for everything you did for me is constant and eternal.
With deep appreciation,
Y and family
