Ryan was born on May 2nd 2017 at 7:14am via c section at 37w 4d. 9.7oz and 21 3/4 inches long. He was taken to the NICU were he spent the next 2 week. He was discharged and about 2 weeks later admitted into the PICU. He has been diagnosed with failure to thrive. He's not gaining weight/keeping it on, holding down food and his GI tract has been working against him since he's been born. He was med flighted to Dallas children's hospital on Wednesday after his parents decided that morning to cancel surgery for nissen fundoplication and get a second opinion.
Baby Ryan has the most amazing and loving parents and big brother!
Chelsea has a licensed home childcare and is here in Dallas so she is unable to work and dad has been taking off alot as well. Traveling for the best medical care, food , bills etc..adds up!
I would love to come together and help them out so they can focus on Ryan and what he needs rather than have to stress about finances. Her oldest son Liam is here in Texas so they can all be together.
Here is Chelsea's most recent update!!:
WE MADE IT TO DALLAS!
Ryan's first airplane ride! After thinking and sleeping on our surgery decision I woke up this morning and it was strong on my heart to talk to the doctor that Ryan had when we were in the NICU for a second opinion. He agreed with us that we needed a specialist and a children's hospital for Ryan's issues. We DID NOT go through with the surgery!! We all have been praying for guidance and it hit me so hard this morning and it was 100% God telling me what I needed to do. Since he was in the PICU in Tulsa he had to be admitted to the PICU here. We should be moving to the gastro floor tomorrow! This hospital is amazing I am very happy and excited to be here! Little man and I are snuggling and enjoying the beautiful view! thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers!
