hypoplasia? ~*Allie*~n~company Due July 5; Aberdeen, South Dakota 1 posts9th Jul
so my son was born on the 4th of July. He was having trouble breathing and they found fluid in his lungs, so he was flown to the NICU. He only weighed 4 lbs 9 oz. Here at the NICU they determined he had an infection, and began treating him with antibiotics. Yesterday he had an eye exam, and the doctor found an abnormality with his optic nerve, and diagnosed him with hypoplasia. They aren't sure if he will be completely blind or just have severe vision issues. He is currently getting an MRI to make sure his brain doesn't have any abnormalities as well. I was just wondering if any other moms had a kid with hypoplasia and how it turned out. I'm a first time mom and I'm really scared about how I'm going to deal with this.
