When Brandon and Megan Fyler found out they were pregnant last fall, they were ecstatic to give a sibling to their 2-year-old son, Colton. But they soon found out that their family would be growing from one child to five children in seven short months. The young couple from Albert welcomed quadruplets Ayden, Braxton, Cameron and Dexter on Feb. 23 at 31 weeks gestation. After an extended stay in the NICU at Wesley Medical Center, all four babies were discharged and sent home by early April.
While the precious miracle babies couldn’t be delivered at Great Bend Regional Hospital, the local hospital recently made a gesture to help the family of seven after they’ve accumulated so many medical expenses.
“Our hospital orders diapers in bulk to stock our Women and Children’s Center, so we thought it would be neat to order extra supplies for the Flyer family and help stock their nursery as well,” said Teresa McHenry, supervisor for the hospital’s Central Supply department. “Recently, we delivered 25 cases of newborn diapers and 10 cases of baby wipes to the Fylers’ home in Albert, and will continue to do that each time the babies move up to a new size.”
Shortly after the visit from Great Bend Regional Hospital’s staff, the babies visited a pediatrician for their two-month check-ups. Ayden weighed 8.3 pounds, Braxton weighed 7 pounds, Cameron weighed 7.2 pounds, and Dexter weighed 7 pounds. At birth, the boys weighed between 2 and 3 pounds each and their mother couldn’t be happier with their growth.
“I can’t believe they have all grown this much. We are officially in newborn size diapers,” said Megan Fyler. “We are going through 40 diapers a day, so we really appreciate everything that Great Bend Regional Hospital is doing for us.”
