STORIES OF IMPACT
Spreading some magic! Sharing our little superhero!
"Rylee was born to an emergency c-section at 35 weeks with left mainstem bronchus compression." shares his dad @reintroductions.
After an aortopexy, a procedure where the aortic arch is fixed to the sternum, and several weeks on CPAP, his airway was still not able to maintain the rigidity needed for normal breathing.
At 2 months of age, his parents opted for a tracheostomy, and with the support of a ventilator, he is able to retain normal lung function.
After 6 months in the hospital, 1 month at a level 3 NICU, 2 months at a level 4 NICU and 3 months at a rehabilitation facility, they were finally able to bring Rylee home.
Rylee's parents are also an inspiration to all the parents; they said that caring for Rylee has its challenges but they continue to push forward as a family.
They are looking forward to that day that Rylee's condition will improve in approximately 1 - 2 yrs of age.
We are excited to witness that Rylee, join this little superhero in his journey.
