  • Looking for other Wyoming Parents of Preemies
    We are looking to start a Wyoming Support Group to help ease the transition for other families into premature parenthood. Our daughter Quincy was born prematurely this summer at 29 weeks weighing 1 pounds 11.5 ounces. She was air-evacuated from Cheyenne Regional Medical Center to Denver's Presbyterian St. Luke's Medical Center. We commuted daily back and forth from Cheyenne to Denver in order to ensure breastmilk was delivered to her during her seven weeks in Denver. Thankfully we also had family and friends make a "milk run" to Denver for us. Our daughter was transferred back to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center where she remained for 2 more weeks. She is now home and growing and thriving like a champ. We look forward to networking with other families with preemie babies.
  • Anyone in Wyoming?

    Take care and GO POKES!
