NO MORE OXYGEN (YIPPEE!)

February 26, 2013

October 12, 2012: I’ve been doing very well eating from my bottle and packing on the pounds, only 1 more ounce & I’ll be 4 pounds! I have reflux that’s keeping me in the hospital but I don’t need oxygen anymore.


MEET DESTINATION HOME FAMILY 7

February 26, 2013

September 2012: I was born 10 weeks early and have been growing up at St. Louis Children’s Hospital for about a month now. I’ve gained 4 ounces since then and tip the scales at 2lbs, 7oz!  I still need oxygen to remind me to breath.  I have a special tube in my belly for feedings but I’m getting stronger.  I’ll need to stay here a little longer...

NO MORE BREATHING MACHINES

February 26, 2013

June 20, 2012:  We are growing, we’ve both gained over a pound since birth!  We both had to get over pneumonia but don’t need a breathing machine anymore!   Right now, we get our milk through a special feeding tube.  All we have to do now is learn how to eat & keep growing.

TWINS! MEET DESTINATION HOME FAMILY 6

February 26, 2013


May 18, 2012:  Hi, We are Tylyn and Taylyn and were born 4 days apart.  Yes, we are still considered twins with different birthdays.  I, Tylyn, was born at 23 weeks and 2 days. I, Taylyn, was born at 23 weeks and 6 days. So yeah, we weren't yet ready for the world. We were transferred from St.Mary's Hospital to our current home at Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center because we both needed help developing certain skills; such as breathing, eating, and growing.

MEET DESTINATION HOME FAMILY 4

February 25, 2013

October 21, 2011:  I decided to be born 3 months early & only weighed 2 pounds, 2 ounces back then. Now, I’m up to 2 pounds, 11 ounces & I don’t need any more help with my breathing.  I still need a special tube in my belly that helps me get my Mom’s milk, so I can grow big & strong.   Things are going well here at Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center and I’m looking forward to the time when I can go home!
