April 9th, 2009 by Melissa Lane

On June 14, 2007 at 29 weeks 5 days Calypso was born. She was 3 lbs 1.9 oz and 13 inches long. She arrived here with a cry after a 6 week hospital stay while pg.

She did well at first and they started her on feeds. On June 20th she stopped digesting milk and her stomach was ‘loopy’

They officially declared her in NEC on June 21st.

The NEC killed her kidneys and she began to swell and get very sick. She had multiple transfusions, xray’s about 3-4 times a day. They couldn’t do dialysis because of the NEC being in her body.

On July 6 we had a sit down with the drs and they said that the NEC was finally gone. Unfortunately it was too late. On July 7, 2007 at 3:50 pm after life support being switched off Calypso went into Glory with God.
