Welcome to our blog! We love new people! We LOVE comments too!
I am Nancy ( YES! CLICK!! I LOVE to take pictures!) and I am the mom to a former 25 week M preemie ( YES he was 15 weeks early!) and the miracle that we blog about. His whole life has been filled with HUNDREDS of medical procedures and 9 brain surgeries ( and we are NOT done yet). Shortly after he was born he had heart surgery to correct his a small heart defect known as a PDA. He suffered from brain bleeds that left him with brain damage and resulting hydrocephalus. He was diagnosed at age 3 with Cerebral Palsy. He has had brain surgery to correct Sagittal Craniosynostosis that was a result from his prematurity, several shunt malfunctions and ROP surgery. His ROP surgery has left him legally blind.
He is amazing! ( and funny!!) Though we still deal and will deal for the rest of our lives we are so proud of him. He does walk. ( And currently walks UNASSISTED!!) He doesn't talk. But he does have some communication that seems to be improving EVERY SINGLE DAY!
While I mostly blog about Tyler we do have other things going on. I am a stay at home mom that uses my blog as an outlet when I am still riding the roller coaster here in "Holland." The Dad is a independent computer program developer and he writes Apps for the app store for Iphone and also for Mac computers like THIS ONE! And THIS ONE! ( which we will be giving away!)
We also have endometriosis which has been causing some infertility issues in our world. We have been trying to add one more to our family for a while. So sometimes the emotions are RAW and not nice!
Please take a look around!
