Way to long since I have updated

I made this blog for a reason, not only to share this with Savannah one day but to also to keep the people who prayed so much and so hard updated. I figured most people followed on Facebook but I know there are bloggers out there so here goes a long needed update. Savannah is one strong little girl, her brothers better watch out. After a little over a month in the NICU Savannah came off all breathing deviceses except the nasal canula and then moved to NICU II where she battled with reflux and feeding issues. She had another surgery and a G-tube put in for her feeds after that she gained enough weight for her to come home on 10/19/2010 a little less then 2 months old. Since being home it's been none stop with doctor's appointments and making sure us as a family bond and start growing together. I have been truly blessed with such a fighter, she truly has many gifts for such a small mirecle. I should be teaching her lifes leasons but it seems it't the other way around.
Savannah is 5months old and has been slowly been gaining weight. She was born at 6lbs 1oz and now weighs 9lbs 2oz I think by now she should have doubled her birth weight. I am in no hurry for her to grow to fast as long as she is doing good.
Even if there is not BIG news to post I hope to keep this blog alive. Again sorry if you have been trying to follow but I promise there always will be updates,

Savannah's now is 4days old

It definitly has been to long since I have updated my blog so I amgoing to try to fill in from the the time of the delivery to now. Savannah was born on 8/30/10 at 11:57am weighing at 6lbs 10z and 18inches long. The c-section went smoothly and so did Savannah's arrival. Dr. Kays decided it would be best to do the surgery that night which went smoothly. She made it through the first night without ECMO but her body needed to rest so it could heal and she was put on Ecmo at 2days old. The Nurses, Dr. Kays, and God have been watching over her aroud the clock. Along with that a extended prayer chain has been never ending for my little princess which has touch us so much. I continue to pray and take whatever comes at us one day at a time.

1 more week

The count down begins, only 1 more week until Savannah is here for sure. I am so excited but scared because I know she is safe inside my belly. If I could keep her in there I would but I got to be honest it hurts so bad. Not a day goes by that atleast 2-3 people ask me "how many babies are you having" when I answer they are shocked and must think I eat like a pig. My fluid levels are going up but for me this is nothing compared to what my little girlis going to have to face.

My sister flew in today with my niece Kaylynn from Mississippi and they are staying until after Savannah's birth. I am overjoyed to see them, it's great to have family by my side. I have to admit that this situation has brought some great people closer in my life. Words can't explain how thankful I am for all the help and prayers we have recieved.

Yesterday I went for my follow-up with Dr.Richards. I have been praying for some good news but the Doctor said her condition is still pretty scary, not much lung development and everything seems to be taking up Savannah's chest space. My fluid levels have increased to 44 compared to 27 before and the normal is 5-25.That must explain all the pain in my ribs. Although I am scared of being on this roller coaster it seems that the time is almost here and the real battle is about to begin. I am scheduled for a c-section on Aug. 30th but everyone seems to think I will go before that, I have my doubts as well. I thought I could handle Trey being here with me until Savannah was born but it's definitely been challenging. I am confused on how to prepare myself for whats about to happen simply because I don't know whats going to happen. Another challenging situation I have been experiencing walking around the baby section at the store and looking at little headbands, socks, or blankets. I hate to be selfish and ask God to let Savannah survive when so many other parents have dealt with the loss of their baby to CDH, angels who have grown their wings. I guess I should just be grateful that there are so many who are here for me and praying for Savannah.

The Fundraiser

I would like to say thank you to all those who came out to support Savannah Grace Quick and CDH at the fundraiser on 7/29 @ Baja Cafe Dos. I am so sad I couldn't attend due to complications, but am so happy how great the turn out was. So many came to eat, drink, have fun, and win great prizes that were donated. On that note I would like to also thank the Hard Rock Hotel in Hollywood, Fl for such a great donation 3day 2night hotel stay. Not only did everyone open their hearts to help us in this time of need but by also taking the time to learn about CDH.

I don'thave much to update everyone on in regards to Savannah's condition except that I go for a check-up on 8/6 and a ultrasound on 8/9 to find out the lastest on her anatomy. At this time I will also find out my induce date. I can't believe how how fast time is flying.

Update 7/23

Well It's been a while since I've updated my blog so here goes. Last week at a routine check-up the doctor noticed my amniotic fluid was high, I believe the normal level should be a 5 and I was at 27 and now at 33. On top of that I also started having contractions so I was sent to the hospital where I spent 5 days on different medication to help stop the contractions. I am taking medication at home to help control my contractions but because they could come back again the doctors decided it would be best for me to relocate to Gainesville early.
I have to admit even though I knew the time would come for me to relocate it's scary that the time is here. I am leaving on 7/23 for my 33 week check-up with the doctors in Gainesville and then I will find out for sure if I am able to get the room at the Ronald McDonald House. Although I know it's best for me to stay in Gainesville I am sad that I might miss the Fundraiser my friends and family have been working so hard setting up. I would also like to thank all the companies who have been so willing to donate to the fundraiser,Lisa Kelly at the Red Tent,Shooting Star's at Buy Buy Baby, Vicky Scesa for Photography and Graphic Design lessons, Seas View Optical for a pair of Polarized Men's Nautica Glasses, and of course to Baja Cafe Dos in Deerfield Beach for hosting the event.

I will continue to post updates until we are admitted for Savannah's birth.

Thank you all for your love and support!
