My Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most.

Tyson was born by emergency c-section at 26 weeks gestation November 1st, 2012 at 15 oz. and 10" long. Because of his prematurity, he has developed Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia and Pulmonary Hypertension. This site chronicles his victory over challenges brought by his very early birth.

Tyson is named after one of the greatest champions of all time, Mike Tyson. I knew that Tyson would have an incredible fight for his life, and no one with the name Tyson could ever be weak. Tyson is our champion.

After 509 days in the NICU, Tyson came home with a g tube and oxygen. He continues outpatient therapies to help him overcome global delays. We anticipate a full recovery from his premature birth.

Today Tyson started pushing up on his hands and knees! This is so exciting. The first four months of Tyson's life, I wondered if his legs worked because I never saw them move. I'm encouraged all the more that Tyson will make a full recovery from his preterm birth. Progress has been very slow, but he's getting there. I'm so proud of him! I'm so grateful for the experience and deligence of Tyson's therapists in the NICU. He would not be at this point developmentally without their dedication.

:D I feel like celebrating.
