    Alyah Johnson
    Premature Birth

    Alyah (pronounced Ah-lay-ah) Rae Johnson, was born on January 14th, 2023 at 8:32am via emergency c-section at Regions Hospital in St Paul. Alyah was 22 weeks and 5 days gestational age, weighing under one pound and measuring 10.25 inches long.  Alyah was immediately transported to the Children's Hospital NICU center where she has been receiving the best care possible. Alyah has fought some of the toughest battles between a blood infection, slow weight gain, and  struggles to breathe on her own. Day in and day out Alyah continues to fight for her life. We appreciate any and all donations to help with financial costs during this hardship.

    Good afternoon, a few days ago Alyah started to have a large amount of blood in her stools. She had to undergo an upper GI dye test as well as an ultrasound of her stomach. These test came back essentially normal, but it did show a thickening of her intestinal wall which is usually caused by inflammation. She had a culture taken from her breathing tube which has now shown 2 types of bacteria that usually grow in the stomach. This could be the cause of the blood in her stool. She is currently on 2 different types of antibiotics to treat the bacteria and on bowel rest for at least 7 days (meaning she will not eat). The NICU has placed another PICC line to help get her some nutrients during this time of bowel rest. She will continue to be closely monitor for any other changes in her clinical status.
