jwilder28 My niece Natalie has come such a long way in her little life thus far. From a code blue at 3 days old, open heart surgery at 10 days old only weighing 5lbs, to finally being approved off her feeding tube at 7 months old. Natalie was born with a defect in her 22nd chromosome called Digeorge Syndrome which led to low calcium levels, a tiny thymus gland, and a defect in her aortic valve with multiple holes in her heart. This is the second most common birth defect next to Down syndrome, yet no one knows much about it. One thing that I cannot deny from witnessing all this, is that God does exist. & If you don't believe in God, tell that to the doctors who were in disbelief when her heart started beating again on day 3 at the hospital, while they were giving their "condolences" to my brother in law and telling the nurses to call the chaplain. Tell that to the surgeons at Eggleston who kept telling my sister "IF she makes it to surgery. IF she makes it through". Well docs, I know you believe in science and "facts", but the "fact" is- She's here. Healthy. Strong. And she's a miracle. I can't wait to see what this baby has in store for her life. Whatever she does, I know she'll do great things with the life God chose to give her, and us. So proud of her and so happy she's off her feeding tube. One step closer to a "normal life" for her and her parents. 1d

jwilder28 I couldn't imagine our life without this little one in it and while we celebrate her today, I can't help but be sad that one more year has ended on her puppy life. Happy 4th Birthday Nugget. 1mon
