FLORESVILLE -- At just two months old, Atlee Boone has proven to be a fighter.

Atlee Boone has begun to take the first steps on the long road to recovery. She was born with VACTERL Association, a rare group of birth defects, which affect spinal and bone development and renal function. She underwent her first corrective surgeries soon after her birth on July 20 and will face more as she grows. (See “Premature baby faces medical challenges,” July 25 Wilson County News.)

“Atlee had been on a ventilator since she was born,” said Nathan Boone, Atlee’s father. “They had tried twice to remove her from it, but she couldn’t breathe on her own. One Tuesday, the doctors told us we would have a care meeting the following Monday; they gave us a week to get all of our questions together.”

Nathan said he and his wife, Lauren, were able to determine the subject of the meeting: Atlee couldn’t breathe on her own and the doctors were going to discuss options.

“It was such difficult time for us,” Nathan said. “Then, the day before the meeting, they tried again to take Atlee off of the ventilator and this time, she breathed on her own. God had a plan and He said, ‘Not yet.’ He said Atlee’s not done here yet.”

“God has a plan for all of us,” Nathan said. “Whether we like it or not, there is a plan. He will not give us more than we can bear.”

Atlee has been moved from the neonatal intensive care unit to the intermediate intensive care unit, but is expected to stay in the hospital for an indefinite amount of time. Medical costs continue to mount, and friends have organized a benefit Sept. 28-29 to raise funds to help Atlee’s family.

See “Boone benefit” for how you can help.
