    Vera Ganyo
    Infant-Related Illness

    Vera was born 3/31/22 with no interventions and seemingly healthy. At her 24 hour newborn screen, they noticed her oxygen levels would dip and her breathing would get shallow when she would get into a deep sleep. It was decided she should be admitted to NICU for oxygen therapy and further evaluation. An echocardiogram and chest rads were performed to figure out a cause. Her chest rads were clear, but her echo showed a small hole in her heart called an atrial septal defect. This is an incidental finding and likely will only require further follow ups with a cardiologist. Vera simply needs help adjusting to life outside of the womb. She doesn’t take big enough breaths and therefore her lungs haven’t been expanding as they should. After some high flow oxygen, her lungs have opened up and we’re hoping our nicu time is coming to an end.

    Growing Like a Weed

    Baby Sister is 7 pounds 12 oz! 6 oz over her birth weight. She nurses like a champ and takes a bottle from the nurses when mom’s not there. We love her so much and are anxiously waiting to take her home!

    Vera’s first Easter was spent in the nicu. Not what we wanted, but we were able to visit and dress her in the outfit we had planned for church. Our little princess is still doing well<3

    We’ve been off oxygen therapy since 4/11/22 and doing well with that. She started having some periodic breathing episodes, which has extended our stay. She was given a caffeine bolus today in hopes it helps her brain remember to take big breaths. With this, we’re here for at least another 7 days.
