Waylon was born 10 weeks early in Columbia and spent the next 10 weeks fighting every step of the way. Having three surgeries and tons of extra medical support. He also had some great weeks with hardly any support which allowed his family to hold him and give him their love. Waylon had the Women’s and Children’s Hospital NICU staff who stepped up and loved him. They also became attached to him. He had two special nurses, Hannah and Karissa, who loved him and became his primary caregivers.
