I think my parents were shocked that I was ready to enter the world so soon – but I was! I made my grand entrance at 27 1/2 weeks! Hello world!
Although I might have been ready, my little body was not. I had really bad brain bleeds that lasted a while and the doctors ended up having to put in a little shunt to help get rid of all of the fluid I built up. It’s really cool though! It goes from my head all the way to my belly.
I came to Taiwan Xi En over the summer when I was around 1 years old. My parents tried really hard to take care of me but I just kept getting sicker and sicker. I ended up having to go into the hospital because I was really tiny and not getting enough vitamins. When I got out of the hospital, I went to Xi En so they could help get me back on track. Since July I have gained almost 5 pounds! Everyone is really proud of me.
Sometimes I also have a little trouble keeping my eyes still. They like to move back and forth all the time, I like to think I just like to see what’s going on with everyone. I might need a little extra love to get to all of the milestones that my friends are at, but I know I can get there!
After all, I did get a head start – you can see now why everyone calls me Transformer!
