My granddaughter, Theresa Ann gave birth today to a baby girl, Sophie Annamarie. 3 lbs 15oz.
My first great grandchild.

She was born with Gastroschisis, a birth defect in which an infant's intestines stick out of the body through a defect on one side of the umbilical cord.

The doctors were able to replace all of the bowel back inside, only requiring one surgery; however some of the bowel was damaged. Although it was damaged, the doctors placed it inside hoping the bowel will repair itself.
She will require another surgery in appoximately 2 months in which they will check to see if the bowel healed itself. If it has not, Sophie will a need to be transported to Pittsburgh, PA for a transplant.

Without the transplant she will not survive.

Prayers that the bowel will heal itself and that a transplant is not required.
Your prayers are appreciated and greatly needed.

Be encouraged, it's a miracle they can to any of those things at all. I'm amazed at what dr's can do today with newborns and even babies not yet born.

God bless her. May he send a complete healing and cause her to thrive and do well. That she may have a long and happy life.

Sophie and all your family are in my prayers. It is such a difficult thing to watch such a precious little one go through this. Kensington is right - there is so much they can do today that they couldn't do just a handful of years ago.

Stay strong and know the forum prayer warriors have you in their prayers.

God bless.

Oh, my heart aches for sweet little Sophie and her family. My nephew was born a tiny preemie 25 years ago, and I was amazed at all they could do for him back then, the knowledge and special equipment they have NOW is so much more. My prayers go up right now for your family and especially Sophie. (((((((LadyT))))))
