On today’s episode, we chat with Darlene about her son Owen, who is just a few months shy of his 4th birthday. After being born as a micro preemie at 24 weeks, Owen was diagnosed with chronic lung disease.
Darlene discusses the journey at the NICU and the support her family received from the local community, the staff at Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego (@radychildrens), and the Ronald McDonald House (@rmhcsandiego). Among the many resources she highlights, the music therapy of Resounding Joy (@resounding_joy) also stood out. Darlene shares plenty of advice for parents throughout this heartfelt conversation.
