I am almost 3 months old and have spent my entire life in the NICU. I've had a lot of problems with digestion and have had multiple surgeries on my bowels, even needing an ostomy for a while. It took the medical team a long time to figure out why my belly wouldn't digest the way it should and my family is relieved to finally have a treatment plan that will help me get home. They found out I have Cystic Fibrosis. I can't wait until the day when my whole family can be together under one roof!

I was born with a cleft palate. A few days later, I was diagnosed with Pierre Robin Sequence. This was causing my tongue to fall back and block my airway. I have a small chin and was not able to take a bottle. After jaw surgery, I can now eat and breath all on my own! I will still face another surgery but I am doing well and growing stronger, and stronger every day. I was recently discharged from the NICU, and my two big brothers were so very excited to meet me for the first time. Mom and Dad are so happy to have our family together, all under one roof for Christmas.

I was born full term and everything was going well until I was 3 days old. My skin was jaundiced and my bilirubin was an extremely high number. My doctors were worried that something was not functioning correctly with my liver and that my liver may fail. That’s when I went to the NICU for further testing. I spent nearly 1 month in the NICU and we’re still not sure why my liver is acting up. I now have routine blood draws and see a liver specialist but I am overjoyed to be home with my Mom & big sister.
