My daughter Emma was born at 27 weeks in January 2013. She weighed only 1 lb., 4 ozs., and was 12 inches long. Everything was going well for the first 2 months until they discovered that she had pulmonary hypertension and may not survive.
My son was born completely healthy and normal. All my appointments while pregnant went great. There was never any worry that something would be wrong. At the end of September 2014, when he was 15 months old, he seemed to have a respiratory virus.
I was 33 weeks and 1 day pregnant when I had my son unexpectedly after no fetal movement for a day. Carson was born on June 21, 2014, by an emergency C-section and was thought to be fine. We soon learned that was not the case. He went into respiratory distress and his limbs were completely blue.
On Dec. 22, 2014, my son, Brodie, stopped breathing. CPR and shocks with a defibrillator did nothing to restart his heart. Once we arrived in the ER they were able to find a pulse. Brodie, a 6 month old, spent his first Christmas in the PICU at Akron Children’s Hospital, hooked up to a ventilator
