Max Maggie Miller Burle

Maggie, Max, and Miller are triplets born 16 weeks early at 24.1 weeks. Maggie weighed 1 pound 6 ounces and both boys weighed 1 pound 9 ounces. All three babies had different complications but all spent time on the oscillator, D.A.R.T. Protocol, and rode the “micropremie roller-coaster.” Maggie’s biggest setback was her size, bradycardias, and fighting E-coli blood infections. She spent 142 days in NICU. Max had the hardest ride and had numerous setbacks during his time in the NICU. Max suffered a Pneumothorax early on and had 3 chest tubes put in as he recovered. Other setbacks included: E-Coli blood infection, staph infection, Nitric Oxide treatment, ROP stage 3 with eye injections, a grade III bi-lateral brain bleed, and spent 158 days in the NICU. Miller had a PDA, battled 2 blood infections, ROP stage 3 with eye injections, and he had the hardest time learning to feed. He spent 158 days in the NICU. We are now 19 months old and tackling all challenges that come our way. We spend our days in therapy and doctors’ appointments. All three babies have come so far!
