Hi, my name is Breanna and as some of you know my family of three is expecting our new addition this December.
My husband Ty and I were so excited that after months of trying to conceive we finally got the positive pregnancy test we had been praying for. Our daughter was over the moon excited when we told her she was going to be a big sister.
The Monday after finding out the news we scheduled to get an ultrasound to ease our minds and confirm everything was going as it should be. After getting our third ultrasound we got news the doctors noticed an abnormality… Ty and I were devastated but we know god does everything for a reason and we have complete faith in him.
After being referred to specialists and having further testing done it was confirmed that our baby boy Huxon has Gastroschisis.
For those of you not familiar with this condition it is a birth defect of the abdominal wall. The baby’s intestines are found outside of the baby’s body, exiting through a hole by the belly button. The hole can be small or large and sometimes can have other organs, such as the stomach, liver, or bladder can also be found outside of the baby’s body. Baby’s born with Gastroschisis need surgery right away in order to survive. The average Nicu stay is forty-five days and the average medical bill for everything is almost 150,000.
Our baby boy Huxon’s due date is December 30th, 2020 but have been warned that baby’s with this condition are known to come early. I am taking three months off from work and will have to stay in Phoenix, (2 hours away from home). I may have to take off more time depending on how long Huxon’s Nicu stay is.
Unfortunately we won’t know the severity of his condition and the exact cost of all the medical bills until he arrives but any amount we raise will be a huge help to our family emotionally and financially.
