A girl that I know had her son at 24 weeks, hes stable and is breathing room air but he needs a few surgeries and she needs someone that will operate on her baby boy, hes 1 lb 4 oz. She doesnt care where she has to go she just needs him to get this surgery..
This is whats wrong with him.. Heres a post off of her facebook.
FAMILY AND FRIENDS FROM EVERY STATE AND COUNTRY. Contact your news and get on air and find a surgeon that will operate on my 1 pound 4 1/2 ounce son! He has tumors in his brain and heart. He is STABLE. The problem is his hydrocephalous. Which is fluid build up in his brain. I need a doctor that will try and operate on him due to his small size. I, Donna Lorraine Boutalis, Wesley's mom give you permission to help me and my son. Whatever information, I give you permission to release. Please contact me if you found someone. I am desperate for help.
what do you mean he's breathing room air?
Not meaning to sound rude, but couldnt that hurt him. (Him being so small, and having brain issues. ) if a procedure was done right now if he is stable?

The closest hospital, perhaps? And breathing room air at 24 weeks? That's not possible...unless I'm not reading it right.
Micro preemie with brain and heart tumors? Tell her to enjoy her time with him. Not every baby can be saved. He's probably too small and weak for the invasive surgeries.
i dont understand why the doctors where the baby is at wont do any thing. and i know here if babys are born that small they take them to the childrens hospital.
My heart goes out to them.... but perhaps he is beyond even the most skilled surgeons saving
He could simply be too little for surgery

Quoting Nicole m Jackson:" i dont understand why the doctors where the baby is at wont do any thing. and i know here if babys are born that small they take them to the childrens hospital."
The surgeons where he is say hes to small for them to operate on.
Quoting Logan&Lilly's Mommy:" Hes not on oxygen. And hes not on any medication so hes stable he just needs these surgeries to help him."
when was the baby born? and what hospital is he at?
Quoting 5 blessings so far....:" when was the baby born? and what hospital is he at?"
He was born february 23. and hes at Childrens hospital of the kings daughter (CHKD) in Norfolk, VA.
