Remember a few days ago I told you my cousin christine had a baby? And we all thought everything was fine with them? Well it wasnt.
When the baby was born he looked ok. But he didnt make any sound. He cried I think at birth but then once in the ward afterwords he never made a sound, or moved. He had tiny ears, and he wasnt feeding properly.
The doctors came that evening, and looked him over. It turns out he has downs syndrome. He is also deaf. His ear canals arent developed properly.
His heart and lungs are very weak too. He’s gone to neonatal and is in an incubator now. We dont know if he’ll make it. We’re hoping he will but literally its hour to hour. He’s very very ill.
If you pray please pray he’ll pull through.
We’re all devastated. Its awful. How something as happy as the birth of a new baby can turn into heartache within hours. Its so so sad.
Please pray he’s going to make it. I know he’s badly disabled, but my cousin can deal with that. We just want him to live.
