Julien Update ( 11/10/2018 )

Hi friends! I have been very busy lately (what else is new, right??). I am growing up so fast….it’s crazy to think that I am only 3.5 months old! I feel like I have lived an entire lifetime already with all that I have done so far (I bet mommy and daddy would agree too!).…

Julien’s post 10/31

Hi everyone! I have missed you since my last post! I have been keeping mommy and daddy very busy for the last couple of weeks between doctor’s appointments, physical therapy and my new excessive drooling habit. Last week was a busy week.

Hi friends! Julien here. Can you believe I just turned 3 months old on October 14th?? It feels like time is flying by…..for me at least……maybe not for mommy and daddy since they have been so worried about me this whole time. I feel pretty good so far but I don’t have much to compare…

Hello! We got home late last night and spent most of it trying to unpack, doing laundry, etc. Julien as SUCH a good boy on the plane and throughout the entire airport. Julien stole the hearts of the flight attendants on Delta and one of them shared her NICU story with me as I waited…

Julien Update- Day 6 (9/29/2018)

Buckner’s here, We are happy to report that Julien has been doing so well “post-procedure” that Dr. Mancias cleared him to fly home tomorrow (Sunday) rather than Tuesday.

Julien Update- Day 5 (9/28/2018)

Hello friends! We spent the day at the apartment so that Julien can rest and lay “flat.” Since the stem cells were injected into the spine like an epidural (and they are thick in consistency), they like for the patient to lay flat as often as possible for 2 days post-procedure. Try telling that to…

Julien Update- Day 4 (9/27/2018)

Hi everyone! Our little superman did such a great job today during his procedure. Of course he couldn’t have done it without the amazing staff of the University Hospital here in Monterrey, Mexico.

Hi Everyone! Julien here. Thank you so much for all your messages, calls and support! I have felt the love and I know that my mommy and daddy have as well. They have really needed it throughout this entire journey. After all, I gave them quite a scare when I was born. Today I had…
