Micro Preemie Monday
Welcome to the first Micro Preemie Monday of the New Year! I hope you all had a great holiday, and are ready to read more stories of strength and perseverance.
Today, we meet Emersyn, as told by his mom Sabrina. Emersyn has been fighting for a long time, but I think his story will show us all that we can’t give up.
1. Tell us about your baby.
My son’s name is Emersyn . He was born at 26 weeks, 5 days at 1 pound 7 oz and 12″ long. He was born because my placenta ruptured, and I have a blood clotting disorder that contributed . I checked into the hospital on 10/3/14 with bleeding and he was born 3 days later on the 6th of October. He is our first and only child.
2. How long was your NICU stay? What was the hardest part?
3. Do you know what caused your premature birth?
My placenta ruptured, and I have a blood clotting disorder (I had a clot in my placenta). My son is still in the NICU because his lungs aren’t strong or big enough. He has a trach , BPD, a g-tube and is on oxygen.
