Gabriel’s Story

Site created on July 15, 2019

Thank you for visiting our page. ALL help, prayers and or financial help is appreciated beyond words!

Gabriel Solomon Alexander Nolasco is anticipated to arrive on August 5, with a team of NICU staff ready. Gabriel has a hole in the lower chambers of his heart and his pulmonary artery is dilated, which is pressing on his bronchial tubes. This condition means he will most likely be intubated at birth. In addition, his pulmonary valve is not working. There is flooding of blood back to his lower right chamber, which is causing some swelling along with the hole that causes more flooding. He also has multiple cysts on his right kidney so it is non-functioning, but “Praise the Lord” he has one strong left kidney that is working beautifully.  

The prayer is that Gabriel has good weight when born and does not arrive before the date Mom (Chelsy Mae) is to be induced. Also, pray that his lungs are strong and working well when he is born. He should be having open-heart surgery within the first few weeks of being born. Further, we are asking for prayers for the family’s financial situation through this whole ordeal. Dad, Eric, will only have about 4 days paid off from his job and will have to continue working full time just to try to meet the family bills. 

Baby due 8/5: Gabriel Solomon Alexander Nolasco
Mom: Chelsy Mae Nolasco
Dad: Eric Nolasco

Newest Update

Journal entry by Chelsy Mae Nolasco

We are asking for prayers for Gabriel. They found a blood clot in his Superior Vena Cava. They are going to run further tests to determine treatment. They also found that his J Tube is in the wrong spot, and just finished an ultrasound on his gut, to see exactly where it is, and what they need to do. 

Gabriel will be having an MRI and MRV tomorrow at 09:30. He will be sedated and intubated. Prayers that the doctors get the answers they are looking for and that God pours His strength into Gabriel once again. 

We will update when we know more.
