I have a dear friend Shannon that I have known my whole life and her husband Brett. They just had their 2nd child a week ago. He was born a month early and weighed in at 5 lbs, 9 oz. Everything was normal and they all came home 2 days later. At his 1 week check up he was a little jaundiced and they told Shannon to bring him back at the end of the week for a billy Rubin check. Last night he started to turn a little purple, felt a little cold, wouldn’t nurse and just about wouldn’t wake up. So they immediately took him to Macon to the Medical Center. Upon arrival the doctors told them they are so glad they brought him on because he is a very sick little boy. He was admitted to the Children’s Hospital in the ICU last night and he is soon to be intubated because he is struggling to much to breath on his own. They have done an ECHO and are waiting for the cardiologist to confirm results. Please, please, please keep baby Cooper in your prayers as well as his mama and daddy. Please.
