[Trigger] I had my son July 19 2010 after being in labor for about a day. The doctor said he was in distress so they did an emergency c-section and he was rushed off to a NICU an hour away from me. The nurse that was attending him said that he has no tone, he doesn't swallow, isn't comfortable breathing on his own and his head head seems swollen in places where it really shouldn't be. They recently did a head scan and said it came back normal but would likely do another if he doesn't start responding, even at a preemie level. I'm not sure if im asking the right question but i was wondering if anyone had any similar stories to share or could give me any infoView Thread
[Trigger] Thank you for your stories and congratulations on your healthy babies. Unfortunately my son passed away August 4. The doctors did an autopsy and could not find anything that would have caused his early birth or his dysfunctions. He was one in a million and I think about him every day. But i am glad to announce that i am currently in my 5th month of pregnancy with a little girl. I can only hope and pray that she will be a normal and functioning child.View Thread
