Mayven Judith Theisen was born on November 14th 2021. She was born at 24 weeks and 3 days. She weighed 1.6 pounds, which made her a micro preemie. With Mayven being so premature she had a lot of problems with her lungs which led to her having bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). Mayven underwent surgery on March 22 for a tracheostomy and feeding tube. After the surgery we had a rocky start and pulmonary hypertension really set her back. The decision was made to send Mayven to a pulmonary hypertension center in Colorado. She spent three months there and now are finally back in South Dakota on the homestretch to get home to Iowa! It’s been a long road but she is the most amazing gift that we could ever hope for.
