March of Dimes

As most of you know my God daughter Audree just turned ONE, however some of ya’ll don’t know “her story”…

Around 3:30 in the morning "A" called me and told me she was bleeding, she was 32 weeks pregnant, and after she got off the phone to call the on call Dr, I told Zach “something doesn’t seem right”…she called me back to let me know they were headed to the hospital and Zach and I looked at each other and said “Lets go!”

"A" had a placenta abruption, and they decided due to the blood loss that "A" had, they needed to do an emergency c-section. At 5:57 in the morning Audree Emma was born weighing a whopping 4lbs 13.8 oz and 18.5 inches long. She was rushed to the NICU due to her lungs being so premature, she was in the NICU for around a month, she was on a breathing machine for a little while, then quickly progressed and luckily had no “major” complications other than her body temp staying up and normal preemie things…Audree is a very strong little lady, and she fought through that bumpy path the first month of her life…

However, some little babies aren’t so lucky, some babies have to stay in the NICU for months apon time…some babies don’t ever come home. The March of Dimes is amazing organization which helps to educate those so that these helpless little children who are born early can have the easiest and fastest recovery and can ALL go home.

On April 25, 2009 in Waco TX there will be a 3 mile walk to help the March of Dimes. Sign up for our team, Audree's Allies, and come out and walk with us—below is a link to my March of Dime Page…please don’t feel as though you have to donate money, however just know that if you do it’s going to a great cause! “The money you raise supports programs in your community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the serious problems that threaten our babies. We've been walking since 1970 and have raised an incredible $1.8 billion to benefit all babies. The March of Dimes uses 77 cents of every dollar you raise in March for Babies to support research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. And your funds are used to bring comfort and information to families whose baby was born too soon, or sick”
