The Scott Family

In October of 2015, McKynlie was delivered via C-section, weighing only 1 lb. 14oz. at just 29 weeks gestation. For 107 days, McKynlie and the Scott Family had a very eventful stay in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). To assist with breathing, McKynlie was was vented for a week, then moved onto a c-pap for a month, followed by high flow oxygen due to chronic lung disease. McKynlie also had liver and kidney issues. She even experienced heart failure and contracted a MRSA staph infection twice leading her to being in isolation for a month. In February of 2016 after 107 days in the hospital, she was finally able to come home. McKynlie continues to struggle with challenges due to prematurity, but she overcomes them all. Today, McKynlie is 5 1/2 years old and full of life. We are all so thankful for our Miracle Ladybug.
