"I was born 4 weeks early weighing 5lbs, 1 oz. I've had problems with my kidneys that've caused me to spend my entire life in the hospital. I'm 6 months old now and my Mom & I are learning about all the special equipment and machines that I'll need when I go home. I have to have dialysis for 14 hours every day, that means that I must be connected to a machine by tubing. Im learning how to use a bottle but still get some nutrition from a feeding tube. It's hard to be attached to machines all the time but I'm still a happy girl! I love to smile and play and listen to people talk. I love spending time with my Mom and I cannot wait for the day when we can be together all the time at HOME!"
