Update on our Miracle Grandddaughter
Tue, 07-03-2012 - 10:04am
Many of you know that my DD and her DH conceived their miracle daughter via IVF in May 2011. Rylan Patricia was born on February 3, 2012 - 7 lbs, 13 oz, 20". She was, for the most part, healthy. She gave us a little scare in the beginning due to bradycardia and cessation of breathing while she was sleeping - she was admitted to NICU at Children's Hospital where she was diagnosed with sleep apnea - obstructive - due to severe reflux. She is still on an apnea monitor, but is medicated for the reflux and her episodes are very few. She is FIVE months old today and is beautiful, healthy (19 pounds and 26 inches!), and happy...not to mention a chatterbox...LOL! Here are a few pics of our "princess" Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Hello and a big congratulations to you and your granddaughter. She is beautiful! It has been a long time and I am happy to hear that everything eventually worked out for your daughter and granddaughter. Your granddaughter was born just a week after my little girl.  Sierra Adelaide was born at 7:36am on Friday, January 27th, weighing 7 lbs and 21 inches long.  Now at 6 months, she was over 16lbs and is 27 1/4 inches long. They grow up so quickly!! Hope you are enjoying the summer.  Take care and wish you and your family all the best.
