Baby Kaleb was not to be here according to the doctors because there was not any possible way his parents could have a baby. He was conceived. Mom developed life threatening high blood pressure and yet the baby was surviving. A reverse blood flow from mom to baby started to occur, this caused an emergency c section.
Baby Kaleb was born 10/13/09, 27 weeks and 3 days, 1 lb and 10 oz, 12 inches long. He was taken to the NICU immediately where he lived for 5 months. Believe it or not that is a size 1 preemie diaper and it was still too big for him. During those difficult times Kaleb’s parents held on to a song that gave them strength to believe that Kaleb would be home. Click on the link below to hear the song…
On March 24, 2010, he came home to his family weighing in at 10.5 lbs. He took his first car ride to where he belonged, at his new home with his loving parents;leaving behind the wonderful NICU family that took care of him from the moment he was born. While he was in the NICU his parents would always play a song on their I phone that soothed him….to this day the baby recognizes this song. Click on the link below to hear it..
He is now a healthy baby boy with minimal complications to his lungs, but vibrant with life weighing 16.5 lbs and defeating medical science. His doctors were amazed. But he is one of the examples of the Miracles of Life! Today 11/13/10 he is 1 year and one month chronological age and 10 months corrected age.
