Jeremiah :: brain damage
Jeremiah was full of smiles today during his Sweet Session! He loves his momma and he LOVES to be told he is “SO handsome!!!!”
Jeremiah entered this world in the most uncertain way; his mom had suffered serious illness while she was pregnant and her body rejected the pregnancy at 30 weeks. She developed cardiomyopathy and required immediate heart surgery. Jeremiah was not breathing at birth and it took a team of doctors over two hours to revive him. Jeremiah was not expected to survive but he fought and is now three years old. Due to an extended lack of oxygen, Jeremiah suffered extensive brain damage and experiences seizures. He is able to communicate in his own way by singing sweet coo’s and facial expressions. He can eat pureed foods by mouth but is primarily fed through his g-tube. Jeremiah is unable to sit or walk and has developmental delays.
Jeremiah is so loved by his family. He is a sweet cuddle and so strong. Please join Sweet Nectar Society in sending Jeremiah some extra love!
