about

Cunero 12, la apasionante biografía de caricaturas de Jenny Jaeckel, describe los intensos detalles de una madre, una recién nacida, y una estancia de cinco meses en la Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos Neonatales (UCIN). Un rutinario examen prenatal revela un problema peligroso, y los padres se encuentran metidos en un mundo de los escapes por pelos, las noches sin sueño, y la crisis psicológica. Rodeados por discusiones, la muerte, las tensiones familiares y cuestiones de la fe, la madre lucha por mantener un estado de ánimo positivo.

Dentro de la realidad mecánica y antiséptica de la UCIN, los dedicados profesionales de la salud se representan con amables (y a veces irónicos) animales. El Doctor Ojos y la enfermera Pañalsuave son dos de los profesionales que cuidan a la bebé Asa. Pero aun los mejores de los profesionales se equivocan, y Jaeckel y su esposo deben vigilar constantemente la situación. De vez en cuando luchan por no sentirse impotentes, pero su determinación, valentía, consciencia y conexión, en última instancia ayudan a mantener viva su pequeña. 


Spot 12 delivers the gritty details of a mother, a newborn, and a five-month stay in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in a visually gripping graphic memoir by Jenny Jaeckel. A routine prenatal exam reveals a dangerous problem, and first-time parents find themselves thrust into a world of close calls, sleepless nights, and psychological crisis. Surrounded by disagreements, deaths, extended family tensions, and questions of faith, the mother struggles to maintain a positive frame of mind. 

Against the antiseptic, mechanical reality of the NICU, the dedicated health professionals are drawn as sympathetic and wry animal characters. Doctor Eyes and Nurse Gentle Diaper are two of the care providers that do all they can to take care of Baby Asa. But even the best hospital staff make mistakes, and Jaeckel and her husband’s vigilance must be acute. At times they battle feelings of helplessness, but their determination, insight, bravery, and connection ultimately helps keep their little one alive.
