Shelby keeps on fighting

January 20, 2017

Despite all the ways life can be tough for her, Shelby keeps right on smiling.

“Shelby forgets to breathe about 8 to 10 times.” A recent sleep study revealed Shelby is really struggling with obstructive sleep apnea, so she has begun using a CPAP machine to monitor the episodes and bring some peace of mind to her family. Mom Victoria shared that Shelby had a rough beginning adjusting to this new machine, but is hopeful that she will adjust well with a little more time.

No matter what, Shelby continues to radiate with her infectious smile! She's doing better with her feeds, putting on weight, and the Huerta family is excited about how well Shelby is doing! We wish them well – and lots of great sleep soon!
