Landon was born on December 23rd, 2010 along with his twin brother Kolton. They surprised us, coming almost 15 weeks early. Landon weighed only 1 lb 10 oz and Kolton weighed only 1 lb 8 oz. Landon and Kolton called the University of Minnesota medical center NICU home while they continued to grow. At 6 weeks old and 3lbs, Landon started showing signs of an infection later to be determined as NEC an intestine infection that came on very quickly. His tiny body couldn’t fight the infection and much of his intestines became necrotic, liver and kidney shut down, and he started filling up with edema. After several weeks on life support, we made the hardest decision of our lives. Landon passed away in our arms on March 14th, 2011. He will forever be loved and missed!
