Summary Dr. Kaur founded the NICU at Lancaster General Hospital in 1984, and recently retired from her position as Chief Emeritus of Neonatology. This book is a celebration of life. As its name suggests, it demystifies the NICU experience, and provides reassurance for parents that these tiny, critically ill infants will typically grow to adulthood and lead normal healthy lives. "My Garden of Flowers" has three main areas of focus: the history of the NICU at Lancaster General Hospital from its founding through to 2017; family stories from 25 families who have had babies in the NICU sharing their experiences; and medical information and practical guidance for families who find themselves in the NICU, to demystify what's happening, and to help them to prepare for caring for their baby through childhood. This book is an invaluable resource for families who suddenly find themselves faced with the crisis of a baby in intensive care, totally unprepared, and not sure what to do. In addition to easy-to understand explanations of the medical jargon, the book provides reassurance for families that they are not alone, and emotional and practical support to prepare them for their role as NICU parents. The book includes a set of appendices with various charts, conversion tables, plus a glossary and an index.--Publisher.
