NICU on Discovery Health

So there is this new program on Discovery Health about life in the NICU.  It premiered tonight. 

And no, I did not watch it.  I know it's a good thing, to try and educate the public about things like this. Heck, I wish I understood it more before our life in the NICU.  Maybe it would have been less of a shock.  And I'm sure the stories have "happy endings."  But that's not real life.  So how true is it?

I don't know if I can watch.  I don't know if I need to.  I lived it.  I breathed it.  For months.  And honestly, I don't know if I ever want to have to go back through that emotional journey again.  Ever.

And that's ok.

  1. Tasha,

    I can't watch shows like that either for the same reason. Let's show reality not the glossy picture that we all hope to happen.
