So I have someone to introduce to everyone! Meet Gabriel Lynn! Long story short at about 7 AM on July 13, 2019 I woke up with a massive migraine and high blood pressure I was rushed to the hospital where they thought it was just a stomach bug I caught well my blood pressure remained high and I got even sicker while at the hospital so they wanted to keep me for 24 hours for observation at about 6 that evening I had a seizure and when I came to from it my OBGYN told me that she needs to deliver my baby to save both mine and his life. At 7:05PM on July 13, 2019 I welcomed the love of my life to this world weighing only 2 pounds 12 ounces this little boy made me a momma. I dont like asking for help but my little man is in a NICU and I had to leave work early because of this. If anyone is willing to donate towards helping with gas, food or even his medical Bill's I would greatly appreciate it I do have
I hate asking for help but me and little man need all the help me we can get right now!

This is one very special Walk sponsor, Earlybirds has supported us for 14 years!! 👏 🧡
They have provided so much for families including beautiful clothing for premature babies and small babies. We can't thank Lynda and the team for ALL they do in supporting the prem community.
Check out the beautiful ranges they stock at 👉 👉www.earlybirds.com.au “Earlybirds has been proudly supporting the Life’s Little Treasures Foundation since 2005.
We are a committed advocate of the Foundation. The “Walk For Prems” held each year signifies the camaraderie of the prem community – which has been a tower of strength for me as a parent of a premature baby (and now teen) – and it’s a really lovely celebration of my son’s strength and determination.” ~Lynda Day, Owner/Director, Earlybirds Pty Ltd

Today was supposed to be my “due date” 🤰🏽...... yet here we are celebrating 2 months of life on the outside with my little love. Bellamy is the most wonderful gift from God 🤱🏽🎁👨👩👧. I have never felt so loved by so many people as when going through all of these health challenges, hospitalization, and watching God work through it all to add to our little family. 🙌🏽💕
Thank you so much everyone, family, friends, and even people I literally only know through social media, for your prayers 🙏🏽 for your gifts 🛍 some of you even sent money to help us pay for all the unexpected expenses of having a baby 2 months early 😳💸. I don’t know what we would do without the kingdom of God and our incredible worldwide family, and the caring hearts who’ve loved us during this time. Thank you everyone 🌎💖 #Preemie #NICUBaby #Prayers #ilovemychurchicc #PureLove
These past few months have not felt good. They have been filled with loss, disappointment, questions, frustrations, feeling alone, refinement, and stretching. They have challenged my faith in ways that can’t be articulated. However, I never measured God’s goodness based on how I felt, or how things were going. I know that God is good, and His goodness isn’t measured by what I feel. I encourage you tonight and remind you of the goodness of God. Psalms 100:5 tells us, “the Lord is good; his love is eternal and his faithfulness lasts forever.”
This tells us that He’s a good father whose love for us is never-ending, and He’s dependable, trustworthy, and reliable. He’s FOR you, and NEVER against you.
You can head to the blog (link in profile) to learn more about ‘The Goodness of God,’ and how you too can handle unpleasant situations while standing on the goodness of God.

Tonight will hopefully be Tierney's last night in the NICU. And as luck would have it, my two favorite nurses were on shift. Maria has been our most consistent daytime nurse & grandma Karla has been our most consistent night nurse. Whenever these two women were on shift I rested a bit easier. During our 2 week stay we had about 6 different nurses, they were all wonderful, but these two were spectacular! I learned so much from all the nurses & occupational therapists, little tips & tricks for taking care of my tiny little girl. I spent about 14 hours a day at her bedside and I'd watch these women work. I've been so impressed with the care they give these babies & the support they give the parents. I cried to both of these nurses several times & they always knew what to say to help get me through to the next day. I cannot express my immense appreciation for them enough. Having a baby in the nicu is rough, but a part of me is grateful because it was great training. I literally knew nothing about babies, but I'm now feeling confident that I've got this & I couldn't have done it without these two wonderful women! We are blessed beyond measure! Now let's hope we all pass our overnight tests & get to bust out of here tomorrow!
Xori the warrior Princess.
Today broke my heart and I cried harder then I have in a few weeks.
We thought we would be cleared to bring Xoraya home some time during this week however things have made a turn and she will remain in the NiCu for next several weeks or longer.
Today they stopped Xorayas gtube feeding due to some major reflux she was having causing her oxygen levels to desaturate in the lower 20-30s.
They placed a new iv in her arm for fluids.
Her Gtube site is beginning to look like it’s healing slowly but surely.
Overall not the best day for Baby Xori but the day is almost over and then we move on to the next day.
Good vibes and love is always appreciated.❤️

She is so little...and precious 💕. Kiyleigh was born premature and found to have several problems including congenital heart ❤️ disease, butterfly 🦋 vertebrae, esophageal atresia (a blockage of her esophagus), tracheoesophageal fistula (an abnormal connection between her esophagus and her windpipe), and duodenal atresia (a blockage in the first part of her intestine). When she was not quite 2 days old and weighed only 4 lbs, Dr. Troy Reyna took her to surgery and repaired her esophagus, trachea, and duodenum. She’s done really well since then and we are optimistic that we can get her bigger, stronger, and able to drink milk on her own. Little babies like Kiyleigh are simply amazing: no matter what obstacles they face, they continue to grow, heal, and thrive 🌈. Keep doing what you’re doing, little girl, and the team at @chocchildrens
will do all that we can to help get you home safe and sound. #longlivechildhood #pediatricsurgery #premiebaby #nicu #nicubaby #nicumom #nicunurse #neonatology #esophagealatresia #esophagealatresiawarrior #tracheoesophagealfistula #eatef #tef #duodenalatresia #doublebubble #congenitalheartdefect #congenitalheartdisease #vacterl #amazing #littlepeanut #yougotthisgirl #wegotyou
