Indiana photos

Here are many photos from Indiana. As I said, Loki met lots of relatives. We tried to get photos of him with all of them, but still missed quite a few (including my mother and brother!). So, you have our apologies if you are not here!

Videos will come soon.

Lanette's daughter Leah really knew how to charm Loki:

By this time, Loki was too squirmy to sit on anyone's lap. But here is with his great-grandmother Helen:

Great-aunt Rita:

This photo was captioned "Big Preemie & Little Preemie" by my friend Marcey. Her son Sam was born at 32 weeks, and weighed about 3 lbs 7 oz. He also had feeding difficulties for years, throwing up a lot. He also had a speech delay. Now he is 14 years old, just fine, and gives people like me much optimism.

About Loki Sky

Loki Sky is a special little man. He was a very early micropreemie, weighing only 610 grams (1 lb, 5 oz) after 24 weeks, 3 days gestation, born to an American Father and a Dutch Mother in Berkeley, California on October 18, 2008.

On January 11, 2009, while still in the hospital NICU, his one kidney stopped working. It was repaired after three surgeries. After spending time in three hospitals in three cities, Loki came home on February 17. He struggled with eating, and then stopped in July, leading to 8 days in the hospital, a failure-to-thrive diagnosis, and a NG feeding tube. On October 10, a minor surgery installed a G feeding tube. Another procedure replaced it with a new one, and then again with a Mic-Key button in Jan. 2010.

In August 2010, he and his parents moved to the Netherlands.
