Good morning everyone. I am taking a moment to ask you for some much needed prayers for my baby girl Savannah Grace and my wife Stacy Lynn. Savannah is our first and only child and is just 5 days old and has been in Neonatal ICU here in Memphis since she was 15 hours old due to her having seizure like apnea episodes where her blood oxygen level would plummet from 98% down to 70% or so. Her little body and lips would turn blue during these apnea events, and the doctors would have to administer oxygen to resuscitate her. The doctors monitored her and ran a bunch of test over the last few days and all of them but one came back positive. The CT Scan they performed yesterday was the exception. The CT Scan showed some intracranial hemorrhaging to some degree, and possibly intraventricular hemorrhaging based on the location of the blood (middle of brain). They will do another CT Scan on Saturday to see if the bleeding is worse, better, or about the same. They are planning to get a Neurosurgeon on board in case they have to put a shunt in at some point to relieve some pressure due to hydrocephalus (abnormal amounts of fluid on the brain). We will know more tomorrow afternoon as far as our path forward and the required steps necessary to get there. If you would be so kind as to send up a few prayers for both Savannah and my grief stricken wife Stacy, I would be forever indebted to you. As one would expect with a first time mom, my wife is having an EXTREMELY hard time with this news. Please pray pray and pray some more that our results Saturday are an improvement over yesterday. As previously mentioned, those results will determine our way forward and basically outline what all we will have to endure to get through this, or not endure. As proud parents, we are praying for the best and ask that you do so as well.

I figured I should at least show you a few snapshots of our little angel over the last few days. She weighed 8lbs 8oz and was 21.5 inches at birth. She is so innocent and so in need of your prayers.

Mom and Savannah right after birth

Andy, I am so sorry that you and Stacey are having to deal with this.

May God be with you, Stacey, and especially Savannah during this excruciating time, and guide the doctors in taking the best course of action to alleviate the situation.

Rightfully so, everyone is concerned with the mother in times like this, but the dads also go through many of the same emotions!

Hang in there man, and thank you for sharing this experience with us!

Prayers sent. Our little one was in nicu last year at this time for over 10 weeks. Born at 3lbs and it's a helpless feeling watching that oxygen level plummet as they become blue and lifeless. She's a healthy rotten little sweetie now. God bless your family and know that He has this.

I have two young daughters, and my heart breaks for you and your wife right now. There is no such thing as a "minor" complication when it is your baby, and nothing that anyone can say will comfort you until everything is ok. Only the God of comfort and peace can give you strength right now, and I am praying for exactly that, in addition to your daughter's healing.

Thanks a million to all of you! As you might expect, words cannot express my sincere gratitude for your continued prayers and support. I am about to leave work to go visit Savannah and mom and hopefully get the opportunity to spend some quality time with her. I will check back in either tonight or early tomorrow morning with an update of sorts. Thanks again to all of you who were compelled to lift up a prayer for my angel and wife.

The TAFKAP family will be at the Heart Clinic "reunion" tomorrow afternoon, down in the main clinic waiting area. They always have a pretty good bluegrass band playing. Holler at me if you have a few minutes.

We just got home from the hospital. All in all, we had a good visit with Savannah. We fed her, burped her, weighed her, took her temperature, changed her diaper, took a million pictures, kissed her ten million times as well as all of the other fun stuff new "greenhorn" parents do, right? \:\)

I was made aware last night that the neonatologist and neurologist would possibly bring a neurosurgeon on board at some point, if for nothing more, to make he/she aware of our situation, get a second opinion of the CT Scan, and to get his/her prognosis. I had a few friends in the medical profession inform me that if I had a say-so in my daughter's care, they would highly recommend Dr. Boop from Lebohneur. So as a scared father would do, I informed the neonatologist that was on call this morning that I would like to request Dr. Boop and influence the decision right now if I had that authority. I never heard anything back to confirm that my voice was heard so I called Dr. Boop's office today at lunch and spoke with the receptionist about my situation and felt her out as far as how I should go about getting in touch with him, as well as the likelihood that I could get an appointment with him if need be (considering he was so highly recommended). Much to my surprise, Dr. Boop stopped in this evening to review the CT Scan as well as introduce himself to Stacy and I. When they said Andy, Dr Boop is here, and he would like to speak with you, I was as confused as ever and I know my face had it written all over it. I told him "while I am glad to have finally met you sir, it is a little unsettling that you are here." I then proceeded to ask him why he was there and he said he got word today from the neonatologist that someone had requested him and that he just wanted to stop in on his way home from work to meet and talk with the parents as well as review the CT Scan. To say I was taken back would be an understatement. I just did not expect a highly desired neurosurgeon such as himself to "just be stopping in to review a CT Scan on Friday night and meet the parents."

In a nutshell, Dr. Boop said the CT Scan definitely showed some blood, but he did not act as if it was a crisis at this point. He also said as of today, it did not appear that she would need a shunt. He felt the top of her head and said it was soft, and that that was a good thing. He pulled on her arms, legs and feet, I guess to check her reflexes or ability to pull back. He never mentioned anything, so I took it he was satisfied with her reflexes etc. He talked with Stacy and I for 10-15 minutes about everything and basically said we are in a holding pattern and that he would be monitoring her in the coming days to see how she is progressing. He did move tomorrow's CT Scan to Monday so that will be the big day for us now. He implied that the fact she was eating, pooping, had good vital signs, etc was a good sign and as long as she continued to do that, we would just monitor her and let time determine our course of action. His presentation, wealth of knowledge, calm demeanor and willingness to stop by and talk with us was above and beyond in my eyes and very representative of a top notch person as well as top notch medical professional. My first impression was he's "top shelf" for sure.

I realize that was probably more than some of you care to read, but that is the result of a scared father trying to get some of this out and off of his chest. We are still hoping and praying for the best and ask that you continue to do so as well. Thanks in advance to all of you who have reached out to me thus far.

Here is a pic I snapped tonight as I told Savannah "smile little angel, this is going on Daddy's Deer Forum". That is what my wife calls TnDeer. \:\)

Based on them moving her CT Scan to Monday, I would guess it would be Monday at the earliest. I will ask the neonatologist in the morning and see what his or her opinion is.

I visited Savannah this morning at 530 and she appeared to be doing good. The nurse said she ate great last night, she didn't have any more apnea episodes and that she was a pleasure to care for. As previously stated, we are in a holding pattern until Monday when her next CT Scan will be peformed. As proud parents, we are praying she continues to eat and have no apnea episodes, as well as heal where the bleeding is. We ask that you continue to pray for our little angel as well. Here's a few pics I snapped of her this morning. She was wide awake, which makes for better pictures. Hope you enjoy them.

We just got home from another great day with Savannah. She ate well, pooped, did not have a fever, and was somewhat interactive for a one week old on medicine. All in all, I would say today was a good day. I will be right back down there in the early morning to deliver her some nutrient rich milk and check on her like a proud father is supposed to do. We are still praying for the best on Monday's CT Scan and ask that you do the same. I cannot say thank you enough to all of you who have been so kind as to lift up some prayers for my little angel. Right as I was about to leave tonight, Savannah kind of stretched and dozed off like newborns do. I snapped this pic to share with you all to remind you of just how thankful my family is for your prayers. Thanks a million for all that you have done and please keep sending them up.

I am praying and hoping all goes well for your family. I know prayers can make a difference. Nearly 28years ago my son was born premature and the docs didn't, give him a 50 percent chance. He left many weeks earlier than they thought he would. Now he is pretty much normal considering he is related to me.lol

Good morning everyone. I am headed out the door to go see my little angel, but wanted to say thank to those who are continuing to pray and also wanted to ask that you keep praying for her today. I will be back in touch tonight with a report of how today went for all of us. Again, thank you thank you and thank you some more for your generosity and prayers for us during these trying times.

Andy,

I am so sorry to hear this, but glad that the last few days have been good. I was also glad to read about your good experience with the neurosurgeon. Just like every area of life, our modern medical system is only as good as the individual nurse, doctor, or surgeon that you are dealing with at the time. This early experience may serve you well in future dealings with medical professionals related to the health of your children.

I am also glad that your wife has been able to provide breast milk for Savannah (that is what I read right?). When you are a new parent and you don't know what you're doing, you know you've done one thing right by breastfeeding. And, that one thing is huge!

Keep us posted!

Good evening everyone. We had another good day at the hospital. It was good enough that they asked us to "room in" tonight so we could spend some much needed time with our baby and the ICU staff be right across the hall, if we were to need them. The nurse told me today that we had been cleared to be discharged by every doctor/specialist except the neurologist. He will come by tomorrow after they perform the CT Scan and give us his interpretation of it, and possibly release us too. That is what we are praying and hoping for. As I have said before, tomorrow is a big day for us and I continue to hope and pray that her CT Scan will come back and show some improvement over the one from Thursday. I will give an update tomorrow at some point when I know more. It may be tomorrow night after we get home and situated. Again, thank you all for praying for us and please continue to send them up. I cannot say thank you enough.

Thank you sir, we are too. We are up and at it down here at the hospital. We have our typical busy day planned as well as the CT Scan, an interactive CPR class, a parenting class and a few other requirements before we are allowed to be discharged. We are praying praying praying so hard that little Savannah will do good today on her CT Scan and get a good report from the neurologist. Thanks to all of you who have continued to send them up.

Well everyone, your prayers were answered, and we are AT HOME with baby Savannah. They performed a CT Scan on Savannah this morning and the Neurologist came by at 1:30 this afternoon to interpret it and meet with us. Just as I have prayed for more times than I can count, the neurologist said the CT Scan showed lesser amounts of intracranial hemorrhaging, and he eluded to the fact that it may have been an isolated event that happened in the brain that will hopefully heal naturally and correct itself over time. He said the amount of blood on today's CT Scan was a good bit less than what we saw last Thursday. His exact words were "I did not expect to see this much improvement in this short of time. You are cleared to go home by me." As happy and ecstatic as Stacy and I are to get that report and be home with our little angel, we are still a little on edge about the whole ordeal. My wife asked the doctor to send us home with a temporary apnea monitor that would alarm us if she has an apnea event, or excessive low or high heart rate. We practiced using one last night while we "slept in" with Savannah across the hall from the NICU unit, and everything went well as I hope it continues to do. We will continue to pray for Savannah to steadily improve as the days pass by and I ask that you continue to pray for her a speedy recovery and good bill of health as well. We have to make an appointment with a physical therapist as well as the neurologist in the next 2-3 weeks for follow up consultations. I would like to say THANK YOU to all of you great people, many of whom I have never met, that was so generous as to offer up repeated prayers for my little angel. I cannot say thank you enough. Before I get back to daddy duty, I thought I would share this pic to show what my wife has done very minute since we have been home. She has sat in the floor and stared at our baby girl for the last few hours without moving an inch. I cannot even get her to take a break and eat, and that is not like her, or I. \:\)

Thank you again everyone for your support, I sincerely appreciate everything each one of you did!!

Man, look at what a head of hair! She's gorgeous!

Andy, is Savannah able to feed on her own or are you still having to pump and bottle? How long is Stacy off work? How long are you off?

Your biggest challenge now will be getting any sleep. It's bad enough with any newborn. But, given the last few days and the fact that Stacy won't move, I can imagine rest will be hard to come by for the both of you.

I think the best thing we all can pray for is that the worries Andy and Stacy have experienced over the last few days will be replaced by the joy of having a healthy baby at home so that they can get some much needed rest.

I'm headed back into the office tomorrow and will most likely work remainder of week. Reason being is my in-laws are in town from New Orleans and they will be here all week until Sunday. My plan is to work while she has help here and maybe take some days off next week when her parents return home.

Tell me about it. I think we got 4.5-5.5 hours last night, but it was broken up over three short sleeps instead of one long continued sleep, which you know is not the same, not even close. I expect tonight to be about the same as well as many of the nights in the foreseeable future.

Good deal Andy! I just knew the family would be back home soon. Hey, if you start buying her a trail camera now and 1 every year until she's old enough she can really get a good start on finding you some shooters at Ames, lol.

That is too funny. They do not make enough trail cameras to tip the odds in my favor as far as a shooter goes. I have already exhausted the "trail camera behind every tree option" in years past. \:\)

If you saved the cost of one reconyx HC600 per year for the next 18 years, you could pay for almost 25% of the cost of a four year degree at the average state university in Tennessee. ;\)

Thanks for the advice Bow, I will pass it along to Stacy so she will continue to stay focused on taking care of herself as well as little Savannah. I tell her this all the time, but as you know all to well, it will be a lot better received coming from a woman like yourself.

Andy,
My wife and I had our second little girl (Hayes)Oct 26th 2012. Hayes had some issues and was transported to the Vanderbilt NICU. She was there 5 days. We had so much support and prayers from family, friends and the TNDeer family. My baby girl is now just over 3 months old and not a thing wrong with her. Looking back at it, it was like a bad dream. Now she is perfectly healthy! God had his hands on her and my family. My prayers are with you and your family. I am so glad that you are all home and doing well! Keep us updated!

UPDATE:

Savannah has been to several doctor and therapist appointments over the last four weeks with the most important one (to me) yesterday with her pediatric neurosurgeon (Dr. Boop) who performed a CT Scan of her head/brain. We are so blessed and thankful to report that we received good news from all of the doctors/therapists and the CT Scan yesterday showed no bleeding/hemorrhaging, so a good report there as well.

Dr. Boop does want to see her again in four months so he can perform an MRI that will tell him more at that point. He did not appear to be concerned so hopefully it is just a precautionary follow up of sorts.

I want to say thank you again for your all of your prayers, emails, phone calls, private messages and all of the other support you offered up. You all here on TnDeer are the best!

I attached a few recent pics of her for you to see.

Thanks again!

Andy

LOL About 75% of the people I showed that pic to asked the exact same question. I "guess" she has big feet, but really have nothing to compare them too. I wear a size 13 men's and my wife wears a 9.5 women's and was a darn good swimmer back in the day, so yes, my daughter probably has above average length feet for her age.

My wife and I, our babies have big heads. They get it from me. You know one size fits most hats. Yeah, I'm one of the "least" that those hats don't fit.

I went to a client's house yesterday, who just had their first. My first thought, when I saw their son, was, "That babies got a little head!" I kept my thought to myself. \:D

So with Savannah's feet that are full of athleticism and grace, are we thinking she's a future Missy Franklin, LoLo Jones, McKayla Maroney or a Lady Vol?
