imageToday is gastroschisis awareness day! 1 in 2200 babies are born with gastroschisis every year. When I was first told Jaxson had gastroschisis, I had no idea what to expect & I certainly didn’t expect for the journey to be as rough as it has at times. I went home and started googling and researching as much as I could, but sadly nothing can prepare you because you don’t know the severity of it until the baby is born. He suffers from one of the more severe cases, which lead to many surgeries, being TPN dependent & being listed for an intestinal transplant. Despite all that he has gone through, he is still such a happy boy. This kid is a warrior. 💚
