“We knew from the beginning Winston was going to have a long stay in the NICU.  At 20 weeks pregnant we found out Winston had RCDH.  He had a 50/50 chance of survival after birth.  He was a warrior for 55 days and fought so hard.  We love you, baby boy.”

We would like to thank our family and friends for the endless prayers and all the doctors, nurses and staff and University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital.
