Payton & Matthew's Story
Written by: Mom Rahn
Being born at such an early 29 week gestation was the beginning of quite the journey for the twins. With such an unexpected birth came many complications. Payton being born at 2lbs 10oz and Matthew being born at 2lbs 6oz deemed for a long 3 month NICU stay which involved learning the basics on how to survive day to day life from eating to breathing.
1 week after birth, Matthew had a Grade 3 Brain Hemorrhage that caused hundreds and hundreds of seizures. With all odds against him, Matthew fought hard day in and day out, every day in the NICU. 3 months later, Matthew came home first, having no seizures, breathing and eating on his own! 2 weeks later, Payton came home having no complications after birth, doing everything on her own!
Although its been a long rocky 2 years since the twins were born, they show us every day how strong willed they are. Payton all caught up to her adjusted age and is smart as ever. As a result of Matthew's Brain Bleed, he has been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and struggles with a seizure disorder called Infantile Spasms. Matthew encounters new struggles every day but he is the happiest little boy you will ever meet. Not a day goes by that he doesn't have the biggest smile on his face. We are very blessed and thankful for each day with Payton and Matthew. They are Preemie Strong!
