Tyson’s 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.

Latest Journal Update


Tyson's first week at daycare went okay. There are still a few things that I will have to straighten out there... I don't think that they are taking good care of him. And they always take his helmet off because they don't agree with it. They just show a lack of experience and attitude of excellence. Hopefully, I can get this straightened out so that I won't have to find another developmental daycare. The waiting lists are LONG.

Tyson is otherwise happy. He's nearing the end of his cold. He and big brother are becoming best friends. Watching them play together is the sweetest thing.

I plan to end this page soon for legal protection from another party... This will be my last post. Thank you everyone for your encouragement and support. I looked forward to reading your posts on the guest book. Having you there cheering Tyson on helped make this journey less lonely. God bless.
