Baby Mila Fund

A message from Baby Mila's dad:
First of all, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone on behalf of my family. We are eternally grateful for all the donations and shares from everyone. Baby Milania (Baby Mila) has a very long road ahead of her. The reason why she is in the NICU is because she was born with a GI tract blockage. On day one of being in this crazy world, she was whisked away to surgery to figure out where and what the blockage was from. They originally tried to do just a small incision on her stomach, but after pulling some of the intestines out, the docs quickly realized it was more serious than a little blockage. They then had to make a cut across her entire belly and remove all of her GI Tract to go over it inch by inch. The meconium was so backed up that it caused her small intestine to rupture while she was in mommys belly. The docs ended up removing 1/3 of her small intestine and had to make small incisions along the GI tract to remove the blockages. The doc said the meconium was the worst she had ever seen being that it was the constancy of Laffy Taffy. As of now Milania has two ends, about an inch of intestine on each side, hanging out of her stomach from where they removed the ruptured portion. The doctors will not be able to reconnect the two ends until the eight week mark. Once we hit that date, we can begin the recovery process. The doctors still dont know what is causing the blockage. The docs are leaning towards Cystic Fibrosis being the cause of it all, but we wont be sure until later on down the line. Today (Dec 16, 2013) was the first time Mommy was able to hold her since she was born (Dec 9, 2013). Mila still has a long road ahead of her, but we appreciate the support, prayers, and donations from everyone. Thank you again and we will keep you all posted and major updates occur. -Ryan
