To Remember Landen and The Amazing Staff at Children's

Our son Landen was born into the NICU at Children's St. Paul on October 2 2007 14 weeks early. He weighed 1 pound and was 10 1/2" long at birth. We told ourselves we would wear the hospital bracelet given to us at his birth until he came home. I had always joked that I would need to buy some sort of bracelet because I got so used to wearing the one from the hospital. Landen passed away at the hospital peacefully in our arms on December 19 2007. That night I cut the hospital band from my wrist and it has felt strange ever since. My wife and I will wear our Memorial Bracelets where the hospital band once was to remember Landen and the amazing staff at Children's.
Thank You
