Welcome to our CaringBridge site. It has been created to keep friends and family updated about our loved one, Addyson Renee.
You can read her full story below. Please check out the links button above to learn more about pre-eclampsia, preemies, and Addyson's hospital. Be sure to read the latest in the journal, view the photo gallery, and drop us a line in the guestbook.
Addyson was born on Wednesday, April 25, 2007. She is considered a micro-preemie because she was born at 25 weeks and only weighed 1 pound, 7.9 ounces and was 11 1/2 inches long.
We believe that Addyson is our little miracle and the power of prayer, along with the love and support of friends and family have kept us strong through this trying time.
Addyson was able to be released from the hospital and come home with us on August 21, 2007.
Addyson had a G-Tube Insertion surgery on November 16, 2007 to assist with her feedings, as she is unable to take feedings by mouth due to her prematurity.
Addyson had her G-Tube replaced on January 2, 2009 due to her growing size and the deterioration of the original tube. At this point, Addyson only puts food into her mouth for tastings and isn't taking any nutritional value from oral feedings.
