We decided to start a blog to update everyone on our sweet, little Peyton. Peyton was born on April 18th, 2012 at 7:35am. She was 5 lbs, 7 ounces and 19 and a 1/2 inches. We were so thrilled to welcome our little girl into our family. Shortly after her arrival, she was readmitted to the hospital since she was struggling to eat and she was losing weight. When we checked her into the hospital she was 4 lbs 15 ounces. We were at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for 2 and a 1/2 weeks before she was diagnosed with a rare, genetic condition known as Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS). Let me just tell you, Peyton is AMAZING, she has already changed our lives in the most wonderful ways. We feel so blessed to have her as our little girl. She has taught us so much about life and all of its possibilities. Peyton has a determination about her. Her smile is magical and her laughter is so contagious.
We have learned so much about PWS since she was diagnosed and we have so much hope. We are so thankful to have this diagnosis early on and we have already started intervention. We have been connected with the most amazing people and we are so appreciative for all of the support that we have received. Peyton has so much possibility. We believe in miracles…we believe in miracles. We will do everything we can to make Peyton’s life as wonderful as she has already made ours.
I am so excited to start this blog. We will continue to update all of you. xo
