Little Miss Saleena is a living miracle. With all of the odds against her, she spent the first 7 months of her life, 219 days in the NICU; yet she has been victorious in meeting her milestones and developmental milestones! Saleena is a Survivor of a complicated gastroschisis case that resulted in the resection of 95% of her intestines at birth. But you wouldn't know! Look at her! She is beautiful, she is vibrant, and she is alive! Doctors have no answers as to why she is still alive, they call her the miracle baby. She is the greatest gift, life. Saleena has made beautiful progress.
There are not many babies that make it from neonate in NICU with ULTRA SHORT BOWEL SYNDROME, Saleena is truly a living miracle, i don't know how else to describe her.
Please vote for Saleena as this may be the only contest she ever enters.
We don't know her future or outcome or how long she has. She survives on total prenatal nutrition TPN through her broviac central line, and smoff lipids for nutrients and fats for 18 hours a day, while she also runs 24 hours a day on a feeding G-tube...
My Hope for Saleena is to bring awareness of her conditions and birth defect. Her condition now is listed as Ultra short bowel syndrome as she only has 17.7 CM left of both small and large intestine combined. As of today, we got put on an intestinal transplant list! We just got referrals to go to Pittsburgh children's hospital or Nebraska children's hospital for her transplant clinic options. (please keep her in your prayers and thoughts, forever more and remember to say a prayer for the little girl's profile you came across that one day, We'll forever be grateful).
She loves to be home and is just so happy!!! She loves her big brother too! She doesn't even know she's any different.
God love her, protect her, and if you guys are reading this please say a prayer for my baby, please pray for a long life of prosperity for her so she can experience Joy and the beauty of the world. Thank you
