BABY BOY IN THE NICU FOR THREE MONTHS AT BANGOR HOSPITAL
Baby Liam .J. Osgood came into this world through a c-section April 10th 2015 at EMMC (Easter Maine Medical Care.) He was born with a medical condition called gastroschisis. Gastroschisis is when a baby is born with his/her intestines outside the body.
Little Liam was cared for by many experienced nurses and doctors in the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) and was unable to eat anything during his time there due to his condition. Little Liam was visited by family members on and off during these long three months. His mother and father went back and forth from the Ronald McDonald House to the hospital. Family members unable to visit Liam prayed for him constantly and hoped for his return to be as soon as possible.
Thanks to the knowledge of the doctors and nurses caring for Liam, the hand of the LORD, and the unconditional love of his parents, Liam returned home in late July. Liam is now a happy soon-to-be two year old, who loves to play with his older brother, Jackson R. Osgood and all his loving aunts and uncles.
