lost her 3yr old son, Ray, on 2/13/2006 as a result of a viral or bacterial infection that turned septic in addition to have congenital heart disease. "Although our son had a heart defect and was scheduled for surgery at 3 months of age, we did not expect him to pass away. He was thriving after almost dying during delivery and again at 4wks old. They never found what caused him to go into sepsis at 4wks old but it resulted in hydrocepholis and surgery for a VPshunt. He was back home at 3 1/2 months of age and had unexplained fevers every now and then. He had a seizure on 2/13 and his temperature went up to 107--he never recovered and they still don't know what the underlying cause was. He was our first son and we miss him very much. He was a blessing and a joy."

lost her 6 day old son, Brandon, on 5/17/2006 as the result of NEC (necrotizing enterocolitis). "My son was neglected of a diagnosis although he had all of the signs. This cost him his life although he otherwise was a healthy boy at 5lbs 11oz. He died of NEC initially. It all happened so fast. I only remember seeing my 6 day old son's eyes open one night and the next morning he was hanging on by intubation with a heart rate of 35bpm. He was gone before I really got there. Is there anyone out there with a similar story or answers?"

lost her 2wk old son, Allen, on 2/4/2002 as the result that he stopped breathing which stopped his heart. The cause of this is unknown. "Allen stopped breathing when he was 6 days old. He was rushed to the ER and taken to NICU where he fought for his life for 10 days. Allen went into a coma and never woke up. The doctor's best guess is that an internal burp or reflexum caused him to stop breathing, possibly clamping his vocal chord which is why it took until he got to the ER to be rescussitated."
