And The Winner Is...

Thank you to all who entered, blogged about the book and stopped by Team Spectacular to check out the wonderful work of Scott Wright. I want to thank Scott for not only writing/illustrating a truthful book about life in the NICU but also for providing a copy for our giveaway.

And now what you all have been waiting for...

Paige put all of the entries (49 numbered squares) into the tub that was used to give her a bath in the NICU.

She mixed them up,

gave them a good shake,

and picked one lucky entry...

and the winner is...


Congratulations to tbonegrl! Please email me @ with your address.

Once again, thank you all for supporting Scott with your kind words both here and on your own blogs. After you purchase a copy be sure to stop back here and let us know what you thought!

I love that you used Paige's NICU bath tub, a great visual of just how tiny she once was.
To Paige, you have the most delightful smile!

Off-Topic here but I wanted to pass along a parent opportunity that I received for my p-l parents. This study is being done in the Netherlands (a source of historic good follow-up preemie data). The email address of the individual who tendered this opportunity is Her request is below - I hope Stacy doesn't mind my forwarding this on via her blog (which has some p-l parents but lots of non-pl preemie families too).

Dear parents,

I would like to invite you to take part in research concerning prolonged or chronic pain in the newborn. In the last decades much work has been done regarding acute and procedural pain. Prolonged or chronic pain still needs exploration. With the aid of your opinion and the Delphi method we aim at describing the concept of chronic pain in the newborn, including a definition and description of etiologic and diagnostic determinants.

You can find detailed information about the background and methodology on Furthermore, on you can participate in the first of our three-round Delphi survey. In this first round you will be asked to answer three short, open-ended questions.

With kind regards,

Christ-jan van Ganzewinkel

Herpes is a serious and recurring disease which can't be cured through drugs or injections by the doctors but the best way to deal with Herpes is by taking natural herbs medicine for it,  I have read about DR NOGADU the great herbalist doctor who cure me from herpes  with his powerful herbal medicine.  i contacted him to know how he can help me and he told me never to worry that he will help me with the natural herbs from God! After 2 days of contacting him, he told me that the cure has been ready and he sent it to me via UPS SPEED POST and it got to me after 3 days! i used the medicine as he instructed me (MORNING and EVENING) and i was cured! It was really like a dream but i was  so happy! you should contact him for his herbal medicine because i am a living testimony and i was cured of herpes and his medicine is legit.  I sent him what he requested and he sent me his medicine which I took for 2 good weeks and today I am out here with a negative result. When I went for the test I was so happy after going through his medication. you can reach him through his email: or call/whatsapp number:+2347010627760 he will help you out.
