View Full Version : Victor III aka Tre`
03-14-2007, 12:08 PM
I hope all is well with everyone. My name is Dwana. My DH and I are proud parents of a former 25 weeker. He was born January 6 due to an incompetent cervix at 1lb 12oz. Heís also a surviving twin. Our happy family of three resides in NJ.
DH is a software developer and Iím a SAHM. I host on another website for preemie parents but this is the first time Iím visiting Aaronís page. My child appears to be the only trached kid on my board so itís kind of hard to vent or get answers/ insight about what ever is going on. However they are all very supportive and we are able to talk about other preemie issues.
Tre` has a sugaleal shunt, a vp shunt, a g-tube, tracheotomy, ventilator dependent, major delays, and sadly but many other preemie issues. Heís also undergone 12 procedures and surgeries.

PLeased to meet you and your adorable looking Tre! My son is trached and vented due to having a small ribcage - he has a form of dwarfism which gives him dwarf lungs unfortunately. Your son is a real fighter. Welcome to the board! :)

Hi Dwana and welcome to the board. You will found a great source of advice and support here. Glad you found us. Welcome Tre, that's such a cool name!

I'd like to thank you all for your warm welcoming! I'm going to have tons of questions that I can never get answers too because I can never "compare notes" to anyone.
Preemie issue, I can do it with my eyes closed, lol...But the trach questions are a bit much.
I have a blog for him. I'm not one of those hard core bloggers that can do it daily but I try. I don't get the opportunity to talk about his vent there because I feel I might lose a few, you know?
Everyone's question (that I find annoying at times) is, "When is he going to kick the vent?" If looks could kill. I just can't explain the steps, the trials, the possible sprinting without having the feeling that I'm either talking to a wall or someone that doesn't care just decided to ask me a question.
I'm going to try to roll around these boards. It's a lot different than what I do daily but I pick up easy.
Again, thanks a lot, guys, this really means a lot to me. :)

Welcome to the board Dwana!
Welcome!! glad you found the boards, this is a wonderful place for support. I could relate very much to your last post about answering that BIG question everyone loves to ask- "how much longer??"...it's hard not having the answer and you're right sometimes people just ask to ask but don't realize how rough it can be:hug:
looking forward to hearing more about Tre!

Welcome Dwana. It's OK to mention your preemie site. Lots of preemies here and we like to share resources. :thumb:
My twins were 26 weekers, now 13 years old.

Thanks again guys. I'm slooowly trying to work my way in. I have sooooo many trach questions! I'm working on it.
Wow another Jan 6 birthday. This might sound weird but I said to DH that my son was supposed to come when he did. My husband said, "Waitttt." I said, "it's in the stars." Keep in mind I was saying this after a day full of crying. I'd be liable to say anything. So DH says, "Dwana." I said, "Babe, look, listen. My birthday is 10/6 and Tre` is 1/06, He was born at 7:43 and you're dad (Victor I) was born in 1943, Our child came five years into our marriage. Did you know you came five years into your parents marriage? He's looks exactly like me but even though he's so small he acts like you. Babe, all I'm saying is he was supposed to come when he did and he's supposed to be our son." He said I love you or something to that effect.
Whenever I think of his birth date I think of that. LOL, Yes, I did sound crazy thinking back but it's all true.

Hi and welcome, ive seen -and replied to some of your posts but keep forgetting we have a welcome area to check out now! Tre looks like a real fighter! How do you pronounce your name? It looks so pretty written with the w right after a D! Deb

One thing I like to do is talk about people and things I LOVE. It's not just my son but other people and their children that has touched our lives. KWIM? Yeah, I'm one of those moms.
I got to the point where I stopped answering the question. It might be rude but I think it's more important that I don't get too vexed while on the subject.
