A story by Robert D at San Antonio, TX 78258, USA on the 11th of January, 2013, at 10:00am

At about 1am I was woken up by my wife then 26 weeks pregnant with our first child.

She had been having trouble sleeping for the past few nights but this time she said we needed to go to the ER because something was not right. After going to the maternity ward of the hospital and what felt like hours and hours of tests the doctor came into the room and said that my wife was suffering from something called HELLP Syndrome and both her liver and kidneys were shutting down. The only cure to this is for an emergency delivery 3 months early. We were rushed to another hospital across town because the one we were at did not take babies that small.

At around 10am on January 11th Conrad Danger Duncan was brought into this world via emergency C-section. Weighing in at a whopping 2lbs 2oz and a lanky 13 inches. After fighting in the NICU for 85 days, he was finally able to come home where he has blossomed into and very smart, very strong, tender-hearted little boy.
