Landon was born January 30th just after 10:00 pm. Due to complications with the delivery, he was rushed to the NICU. That night was the scariest night of my life. He spent the next two and a half days in the NICU at Madison Memorial, and each of those days was also hard for my husband and me. I’m so grateful for the nurses and pediatricians that took care of our little boy. They answered my questions and were so good with Landon beyond what their jobs required. Everything was very professional and informative yet sensitive enough to help a new mom feel comfortable.

Thank you ~ Michael, Aubree, and Landon Low
