New Orleans based Huffington Post writer Stephen Maloney thanked New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees for helping him keep an extra eye on his son while he was in NICU.

The Huffington Post reports, Brees' donation to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Ochsner Baptist Hospital funded individual Nicview webcams for each infant station.

Though Maloney's son was in NICU for five days, he said it felt like an eternity. Maloney said the five days were made better by being able to watch his son via the webcams whenever he wanted.
