Lochlan was born at just 24 weeks and 5 days gestation, weighing-in at 1 pound and 7 ounces. Though tiny, his feisty spirit was apparent from the beginning. Lochlan’s development was initially slow, due to his heart PDA (Patent ductus arteriosus) remaining open. He was transferred to Le Bonheur at almost three weeks old to have a PDA plug successfully implanted. Positive results were immediate as he became stable and growing steadily. Two weeks later he became very sick and unfortunately succumbed to NEC (Necrotizing Enterocolitis).
To honor his memory, we want to show our support and appreciation for Le Bonheur and their amazing staff. Please help us meet our goal by making a donation or join our team and participate with us.
We miss Lochlan every day, and though devastated by his death, we will always remember him in our hearts and minds.
