Thomas Family

Michael and Keisha met while they were both on family cruises in the Cayman Islands. That day was the start of a whirl wind relationship. Keisha relocated to Nebraska and shortly after Michael proposed and they were married. The dream of starting a family was something that they longed for. While visiting the doctor for a routine baby statistics checkup appointment the family was immediately directed to see a specialist. During the meeting with the specialist it was determined that Keisha would need to have emergency surgery within the next two hours. The surgery was the start of weekly appointments with the specialist. One Saturday night at midnight Keisha was awakened by her water breaking, she was just 26 weeks. Upon arriving at the hospital and after undergoing a series of tests, it was determined Keisha would need to remain there for the duration of her pregnancy. Less than twenty-four hours later Keisha was rushed to emergency delivery as the umbilical cord started to come out. Less than an hour later Miles Josiah Thomas was born weighing 2 pounds and 3.4 ounces. The Thomas Family knew immediately that Miles was a fighter. Miles was breathing on his own but was given assistance with oxygen. Due to Miles early arrival he would have to remain in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) until he reached several milestones. After 74 days Miles was able to come home to complete the Thomas Family. He has been surpassing milestones ever since which has a twist of irony given his name. The family is grateful to have this opportunity to share their story with others and thankful to March of Dimes for NICU Family Support and medical advancements that helped Miles during hospital stay. Miles is now a very energetic little boy and loves to keep his parents on their toes. He likes to sing Daniel Tiger songs & play with friends at daycare. Miles also loves Peppa Pig & Mikey Mouse.
