An Indianapolis family is forever grateful for their miracle baby, who fought all the challenges to survive.

According to the WXIN, Rowan the baby boy who was born in 2018 had a rough start, Daniel Breyts and Jess Novac parents who welcomed this baby. Due to unavoidable circumstances, Rowan was born three months early, where a normal baby is in the womb for about 9 months. Unfortunately, the baby wasn’t expected to live longer because of his extreme premature birth. Medical professionals also explained to parents that Rowan had a less than 1% chance to survive and instructed them to start planning for baby’s funeral.

“It was a really hard balance between — I wanted him to survive, but I was a realistic person. They told me he was going to die. I didn’t want him to be in any pain and drag it out at that point,” Jess mentioned in WXIN.

Rowan was having a very hard time as he was suffered from necrotizing enter colitis (NEC), It is a devastating disease that affects mostly the intestine of premature infants. The wall of the intestine is invaded by bacteria, which cause local infection and inflammation that can ultimately destroy the wall of the bowel (intestine). Such bowel wall destruction can lead to perforation of the intestine and spillage of stool into the infant’s abdomen, which can result in an overwhelming infection and death.

Hopefully, his parents were waiting for two months and expecting something good. Ultimately, they decided to visit the Riley Hospital which has a special concern about children. Unbelievably, doctors at the hospital assumed that they could help the little Rowan.

“She told me they saw a lot of pink viable intestine, which was the exact opposite of what we had been told,” Daniel Stated

Fortunately, baby boy has undergone with surgery for a few days at Riley Hospital and the surgery got succeeded. Rowan was able to go home for the first time in his life.

Currently, Rowan is in a good condition and growing his self-day by day. It’s true that this little fellow is definitely a fighter.
