Lauren's Visual Journey

Welcome to Lauren Elena's homepage on the World Wide Web. She was born Jan 14, 2003, a week earlier than expected. Her mom Lisa waited almost until the last minute to deliver her, just 1.5 hours after arriving at Piedmont Hospital!

Lauren Elena spent five days in the Neonatal Intermediate Intensive Care Unit at Piedmont with an I.V. of antibiotics to battle a mysterious blood infection. The doctors and nurses took really good care of her and she is just fine now.

In some of the photos you'll see little velcro patches that hold on Star Trek-like 'sunglasses'. The 'sunglasses' protected Lauren's eyes while she went under the "Bili Lights," basically a tanning booth to treat jaundice. Folks tell us it's a common malady for newborns and if it was summer we could've just put her by a window.
