I was told on January 31st(almost 4months pregnant) that my daughter had gastroschisis. She was born via c section at 29weeks of gestation due to other complications on April 24th at 1:36pm. We spent 100days in the NICU. She has had 9 surgeries, 5 blood transfusions and is still having belly issues with spitting up. She is the strongest fighter I know and ridiculously adorable! She melts the nurses hearts and I hope you will continue to keep my little fighter in your heart and prayers

Zoe Suzannah was born at 35 weeks with gastroschisis. She was born via emergency c-section due to increased heart rate, no movement and her bowels were dilated to over 4 cm. She had a silo immediately. After 6 days of having the silo she went in for her surgery. She did wonderful! At day 23 she had her first bottle of 3mL. She is now at 29mL. She is still in the NICU working her way home. She is pooping regularly and is improving every day. We are looking at her being home by the end of this month (August). She is our little miracle baby :)

gtube placed. She did good but then her tummy would get distended and she wasn't gaining weight. We switched doctors and ever since then she has gained weight and is doing awesome. We recently reached full feeds by mouth and are so happy :) She is a little behind in development but she is catching up.
slow motility, an NJ tube placed. That didn't help and on April 20th, 2012 we had a nissen done, hital hernia repaired, and a
Lyla Ann was born with gastroschisis on 3/24/11 @ 31 weeks gestation, weighing 3lbs 11oz. She lost half her intestine, & suffers with Short Bowel Syndrome. She's had 6 surgeries, 14 blood transfusions, multiple cvl infections, countless of hospital admissions & more to come. At 16 months old, Lyla still receives TPN & Lipids through her central line, continuous g-tube feeds & has a ileostomy to collect her waste, but none of that stops her from living life to the fullest

Brock David was born on the 9-3-2011 at 37 weeks with a complex Gastroschisis. He was taken straight to NICU where the doctors placed the silo around his bowel. On day six he was taken to have his stomach closure surgery. Our little fighter suffered a nasty infection. Once his feeding was well established he was able to come home, so on the 4-4-2011 we got to bring our precious little man home. Today Brock is a very healthy and happy toddler, thanks to all the wonderful doctors and nurses and the love from his family!!
Riley Jacob was born at 36 weeks with Gastroschisis. He had his intestines put into a silo right after birth. When he was 6 days old he had his 2nd surgery for the closure. At 8 days old we were finally able to hold him for the first time. After 42 days our baby boy was finally able to come home and meet his big brother and sister for the first time. He has recently become a big brother himself. He's now happy and healthy.
