Our Journey ... to health

  

  I'm a 24 year old single mom, blogging about my life raising former preemie Hannah & Hailey. 
The beginning of our story started with me unknowingly pregnant with twins at 20weeks, spending two months pregnant in Vancouver, Hailey being in the NICU for 93 daysbringing Hailey to see Hannah in the hospital for 414 days, Transferring hospitals, Learning about Tracheostomy care and going home for the first time after 507 days!
       We're in what I hope to be in the middle of our journey. Living life at home. Having around the clock nursing care. Dating with a special needs child. Trying hard to stay germ free. Growing Hannah's little lungs, taking naps off the vent. G-tube feeds. Hailey having her first seizure from her brain injury. trying to avoid hospital stays and constant battles with doctors. 

We don't blog/write as much as we use to because we started to share our journey though vlog/video form! It gives a better look at what our life is really like. Click HERE for our vlogs

Hannah's 1st Decannulation Attempt


Hello,



    For those of you who don't know who we are; Hannah is 4 years old and has had her trach since she was 1 years old (She got it a few days after her birthday). Hannah lived in the hospital for the first 507 days of her life. She was born at 29 weeks and weighed 1lbs 7oz. She was intubated for the first 3 months of her life, cpap for a month, high flow for a month, low flow for 6 months ( after having her VSD repaired)... Then bipap followed by intubated, followed by bipap, followed by trach..

    Hannah has chronic lung diseases from being premature. She was pretty much ventilator depended for the first year of having a trach. Then a year of just when she was a sleep, just at night and now has been off the ventilator for a year!!!

  The only throat problems I was told she had since the beginning was that her vocal cord looked a bit sluggish, but not for sure paralyzed.

  We originally started off at children s hospital in Vancouver and now are at a smaller hospital on the island that can handle trach care. 



Here is our video from our first decannulation attempt trip 




Here are each of the days in FULL, I made the 1st video just with any important medical bits for quick watching.. if your interested in the full days here they are :) 



Day 1, Leaving for the hospital



Day 2, Hannah goes to the OR



Day 3,  Hannah's trach gets capped 

Day 4, Disappointment going home
