Danylle went into pre-mature labor just a week before Liliya was born at just 24 weeks and 4 days! Her water broke causing her to lose the majority of her ambeotic fluid which is a necessity for the baby to grow and thrive in the womb. Justin rushed her to the hospital where she was put on bed rest while they monitored little Liliya.
At that time Liliya weighed close to one pound with under developed lungs, so the doctors gave Danylle a steroid to boost the development of Liliya's lungs. The hope was to try and keep Liliya in for at least 48 hours to allow the steriods to do their job. Danylle had to lay on her right side and was unable to move from that positon for fear of Liliya's stats dropping.
Through Danylle's will and amazing strength she was able to keep Liliya in the womb for an entire week after her water broke. Danylle was rushed into an emergency C-section on late Saturday night and little Liliya was born at 1:25am Sunday morning weighing 1 lb 13.7oz.
Liliya is breathing room oxygen on her own, but she still has a long road ahead of her with the doctors predicting her to be in the NICU for the next three months.
