Milo

Our hearts are broken right now.


Last night, Milo came off ECMO and continued to defy the odds for a while with "remarkable" numbers - but ended up suffering a pulmonary hemorrhage in his right lung which he was unfortunately not able to recover from.


In the end, Milo gave it everything he had and fought like an absolute warrior for over two weeks after being born with less than 10% of his diaphragm, a left lung barely the size of a peanut, and a severely under-developed right lung. And I can't stress enough how proud we are.


Together with our families, we surrounded Milo with so much love in his finally moments with us here on Earth. We are comforted knowing that he is already wrapped in love by Kevin’s mom in heaven. Milo will forever be our guardian angel. Never could we imagine being so inspired by a two week old - but here we are, in complete awe of our son and the fight he put up.


Right now, we need some time to grieve and process this loss. But we just want to extend our sincerest thank you to all of our family, friends, coworkers, doctors, nurses, etc. - everyone who prayed for Milo, showed love to our family, helped us get here, and will help us get through this difficult time. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
