The Dreyer Family

 
Lori and John are thankful to be parents to four healthy children. To look at their family today, you would never know of their battle with prematurity. When she began her first pregnancy in 2006, Lori received prenatal care right away and did everything "by the book". However, at her six month checkup, her blood pressure was elevated and she was diagnosed with preeclampsia. After bedrest at home, Lori was admitted to the hospital high risk unit at 29 weeks where she and her baby were monitored around the clock. She received steroid shots to help her baby’s lungs develop and treatments to try to lower her blood pressure, but Lori’s condition worsened and she developed HELLP Syndrome, a life-threatening liver condition. Baby Rylie was delivered by C-section at 32 weeks, weighing 3 pounds, 6.4 ounces. She spent 20 days in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) where she received surfactant for her lungs and many other treatments. Today, Rylie is a healthy fifth grader that loves reading, horses, and ice skating! Their doctors recommended early prenatal care and close monitoring if they chose to add to their family. Following a regimented plan of supplements, doctors’ visits, tests, and periodic hospital stays, Paxton was born in 2008 on his scheduled delivery date at 37 weeks! Four years later in 2012, Auggie also made it to his scheduled delivery date at 37 weeks! Lori was diagnosed with preeclampsia with both pregnancies and both boys were treated for jaundice, but neither baby had to spend time in the NICU. Lori’s fourth pregnancy, ten years after their battle with prematurity began, proved once again to be very challenging. Hospitalized again at 29 weeks and given steroid shots, the doctors determined that her baby had stopped growing and decided to deliver at 33 weeks. Avery was born at just under 3 lbs. Avery stayed in the NICU for 19 days and also received surfactant for her lungs. Today, she is a feisty 2 year old that tries to keep up with her brothers and sister! Our family is LIVING PROOF that the research funded by the March of Dimes is helping us win the fight against prematurity and we are very thankful for the wonderful doctors, nurses, and hospital staff that are advancing education care for mothers and babies. We are proud to represent the March of Dimes, share our story, and continue to fight for healthy families, healthy moms, and strong babies.
