My name is Christie. I have been married to my husband since 2007. We have two daughters: Alexis and Skylar. December 27, 2013 I was 17 weeks pregnant with Skylar and it was the first time that I had ever heard of Gastroschisis. Skylar was born at 36 weeks and 2 days weighing in at 7lbs. and 6oz. She was born with both her large and small intestines outside her body. She had a silo put on right away and had her closure surgery at 3 days old. She spent a total of 36 days in the NICU at the University of Mississippi Medical Center before coming home.
