A Full Recovery after 15 Days in NICU

Submitted by Mandy McQuay, mother of patient Raelee
Brookland, AR

My daughter was born five weeks early. Her Apgar scores were 1/3. She was unable to breathe at all, and at birth had to be bagged and have chest compressions. She was airlifted to ACH within hours of her birth. She was intubated and had to receive Surfactant. She was in the NICU for 15 days. She is now 3 ½ years old and is completely healthy and perfect! The care we received when she was there was amazing. Our nurses, doctors and everyone else involved in her care went above and beyond.
