I'm smashing that damn glass!
There, it's done. Now no one can use it anymore.
Should we really be measuring success based on inaccurate research?
Call me a pessimist. I don't care. The facts show that preemies are not escaping the effects of the NICU. Period.
I am not saying that ALL preemies are majorly affected, long term. There are success stories. I am honestly not disputing that fact. What I am disputing is the number of them. Parents do not share honest information about their child and adult preemies do not either.
I worry what this misinformation does for the future preemies. If neonatologists think the glass if half full, will they try to improve conditions in the NICU?
I hope everyone takes a moment and checks out Clark's post on pain in in the NICU.
