So much of this babes first week I didn’t share, and for a while afterwards I thought I missed out on a lot, those first couple weeks where all you do is snuggle, and adapt to one another, you get into a routine I was so used to from my other babes, that I didn’t get that this time around because this is what our view was, machines, beeping and lots of tests and doctors- I still hadn’t said the words Down syndrome out loud, let alone be able to tell anyone what was going on. So I kept quite (except for rheal) and only messaged people because I could control my responses and didn’t have to make eye contact because I thought if someone looked into my eyes they could see what I was thinking and feeling, and I couldn’t let that happen. So instead I tools lots of pictures of him and snuggled him ever change I got, because while I felt there wasn’t much I could do for him because so little was known at this point, that I could do, I could love on him like he (and I needed) #lincolnsfirstweek #memories #nicu #downsyndromelove #downsyndromeawareness #mybabe #lincolnhuxleymantha

Just finished a guest lecture on Neonatal Intensive Care for SLP graduate students at CSUF! We used a real #nicu Simulation Lab! 👶🏻 🍼
This profession gives and gives and gives to me every single day. It’s important to me that I take time to give back.

What are you doing to help our future generations of SLPs be outstanding clinicians?

Who knew half of my heart could be outside my body!?!? BREATH the second matter! ❤️ God thank you from the bottom of my heart for putting your hands all over my little dude! 🙏🏼 As the days keep getting closer and closer to Christmas Eve my mind starts to remember the very second you where born! It took you a while to breath on your own but then you got the hang of it and cried! Those few moments I’ll never forget!
How are you almost one!

What a crazy 24 hours. 2 for 2 on NICU babies!!! Little one is considered full term but still has the minor complications of a preemie. She should only be here for 2 days at the most. Nothing like going in for a routine appointment and being told you are giving birth NOW. Obligatory carrying life is nothing short of awesome statement. Monday morning I woke up feeling fine, more than fine, like hot shit 😂 Sure I felt like I was nursing the worst hangover of my life for the 234th day in a row, but otherwise I felt fine. Cue 3 hours later and I’m being told I’m a walking seizure factory. It’s amazing because the moment my baby was out, my blood pressure was normal and I wasn’t sick anymore. Never once has this whole ordeal brought me down. Sure I’m annoyed and it sucks a bag of red rockets, but I firmly believe that when you embrace all the suck, nothing is impossible. You have no other choice but to plow through the bullshit and laugh when you wanna cry #lifecomesatyoufast #keepitmoving #nicu #nicubabies #newborn #twinsies

17日も予定してたけど無呼吸状態が目立つ為、出来ませんでした😢
19日はお父さんの番☆
②.③なんだか不機嫌…お父さんの胸にのせると泣いちゃった!初めて聞いた彩葉の声ー!!嬉しい😭
④少ししたら落ち着いて寝ちゃった😌

11/21
④慣れてきた…かな🙄

1回すると2.3時間!?聞いた時は嬉しいけど、長いなーって思ったけど実際するとあっという間😳もっともっと触ってたい!

結月1ヶ月♡

体重は+150gで540gへ!
0.5ml/回から始まった母乳も、8ml/回へ増量。total64ml˙ᵕ˙⑅
沢山飲めるようになってきてるから、1ヶ月でこんなにぷくぷく( ¯꒳¯ )b✧
4枚目と最後の動画は10日前の10/13の結月。
10日前と比べても肉付き全然違う😊毎日スクスク大きくなってます。

呼吸はステロイドで助けてもらいながらも呼吸器条件は少しずーつ下がってきてて、、、
28日超えたので、病名的には慢性肺疾患ってのがついちゃったけど、、、
呼吸忘れちゃう回数もすこーしずつ減ってきました꒰ ¨̮͚ ꒱♩♩◦. 表情もすこーしずつ出てきて、少し笑ったり。
手で握る強さもだんだん増してきて、挿管チューブを引っ張ってヒヤッとさせてくれる場面も多くなり、たまに抑制されてたり、、、(笑)

毎日可愛い˙ᵕ˙⑅❤
ゆっくり大きくなーれ。

A wonderful teenager now, I asked him if he knew what today was. “No, what is it?” he asked. “It is the day you came home from the hospital after you were born,” I said. “Wait. What? How is that even possible? My birthday is in September!” He knows he was born early however, many parts of his story are incomprehensible. In fact, they are incomprehensible to most anyone who hasn’t been pregnant and imagined what giving birth three months early means. Story at link in bio

Today I volunteered doing hair for families at Dell children’s hospital, and walking in felt so strange. 6 months ago I was walking in there every morning to see Chloe in the NICU unit. We weren’t sure in the first couple of days if we would ever bring her home with us. Today I met a lady and her husband who were just counting the days until their child’s brain stops working. They were in an accident and had to have an emergency delivery, her daughter was born with a very bad brain injury, and they will never be able to take her home with them. I’m so lucky and blessed to be able to hold Chloe and watch her grow. I love her so much.... hold the ones you love tight tonight, tomorrow is never promised to us. And don’t forget to smile when you do!!! .

If you're spending holidays in the NICU, ask if you can decorate! NICU, PICU and hospital regulations differ greatly, but you may be allowed to hang a stocking, place a small menorah or even have a small tree. Decorations can help soften the sterile environments and bring smiles to many faces. If decorations aren’t allowed, something as simple as a holiday blanket for your child to lay on can make a huge difference. Read more tips for bringing holiday spirit into the NICU on the blog: handtohold.org/blog.⠀

♥️🌟🙏🏽🐻 Just want to update y’all. Sky 🐻 is having surgery tomorrow or Thursday. It’s called Nissen surgery, and he will get a GTube. It all happened so quickly.

Anyway, we are scared, sad because who wants their baby to have surgery (and this isn’t his first)...and just wanting what’s best for Sky. So, here’s to his safe surgery and recovery. He should be home before Christmas and will get his feeds through the GTube for a few weeks until it’s safe to remove.

Prayers please. 🙏🏽♥️🌟🐻 We will let you know when the surgery is complete. We love y’all. Thank you. 😭😭😭😩😩😩 #triplets #tripletsofinstagram #nicubaby #nicu #nicubabies #newbornbaby #vlog #vlogmas #vlogmas2019 #youtuber #linkinbio #identicaltwins #blacklove #preemiestrong #preemie #preemiepower #preemiemom #carters

Some of the women I admire most in this world are not famous, they are not glamorous, their hair is not perfectly done every day, their makeup is not flawless, they aren’t IG models or fashion bloggers...they are nurses just like these women right here...they show up every day no matter what is happening on our unit, ready to work and sacrifice in order to save lives. ☺️💟🏥 And let me tell you we definitely don’t do this for the money lol😆🤣

Nine months ago, this girl was confined to a gel pillow, sedated out of her mind, coding without warning. She couldn’t lift her head and was very irritable when moved. There were days that put this milestone so far out of reach, but, she worked so hard to get here!

Nine months ago, this girl was confined to a gel pillow, sedated out of her mind, coding without warning. She couldn’t lift her head and was very irritable when moved. There were days that put this milestone so far out of reach, but, she worked so hard to get here!

We’re entering my favorite phase of development- Lily wants to explore everything. She loves to see how objects fit inside of one another, what sounds they make, and how she can use them to further her play. Watching those little analytical wheels turn in her brain is truly a joy ♥️

Day 139: how do I stop my heart from melting every time I see this perfect little face?? Last night the king was running a fever 😩 his heart rate was anywhere from 160-180 and his color was a little off. He wasn’t acting sick tho. He just didn’t want to go to sleep. We put a cool wash cloth on his forehead and unswaddled him so he’d cool down. Also gave him Tylenol and started antibiotics to fight a possible infection. Waiting for cultures to come back. We are hoping if he did catch an infection, we caught it early. Other than that, we were able to go down on his oxygen to 21%!!! His baseline was 25% still very good! And nava level is 2 now. They briefly mentioned getting his g tube today but after his fever, it’s not gonna happen. I brought his boppy in and he just loved it! He fell asleep right on it. His current weight is 9.13 😁 oh my sweet boy, you’re just amazing to look at. #nicu #miracle #myking #kingstonstrong #kingston #trachbaby #trachlife #boymom #nicumom #iloveyou #micropreemie #28weeker #onepounder #ourlittlepreemie #preemiehood #stronglikemama #carters #baby #cute #strong #brave #blessing #godsplan #prayer #boppypillow

#flashbackfriday I will never ever get bored of sharing this photo, two months of being separated they were finally reunited.
Tomorrow is TTTS Awareness Day (which I can’t wait to celebrate) and these are my TTTS survivors!
7 months of hell in pregnancy being told weekly they wouldn’t survive!
1 laser ablation operation at 20 weeks splitting their placenta in half.
Born 10 weeks early weighing 1lb 4oz and 2lb 13oz.
In NICU for over 3 months, these two proved everyone wrong 🙌🏻

After losing her baby at 30 weeks to a rare disease called Trisomy 18, Sierra Strangfeld made the brave decision to donate her breast milk to other babies in need. She pumped for 63 days, donating it to a NICU milk bank on the day her son was supposed to be born.
