Here is an update on the special needs baby. His name is Wyatt. “We have a baby diagnosed with microcephaly who is in need of a family. It’s been a rough couple of days. At one point we even had a doctor tell us that this baby boy might not survive. After his MRI yesterday which was abnormal of course, the doctor reported that his was one of the most complex cases this doctor has ever seen. Yesterday he was still on g-tube feedings and the physical therapist said that trying to feed him had not worked well and caused him distress. She thought it would be Monday before they would even attempt bottle feeding again. This morning when his adoption specialist arrived at the hospital, this baby boy was doing remarkably better!! All his IVs are out, he’s breathing room air and being feed with a bottle. She said he definitely has the capacity to let everyone know when he’s hungry! Now we just need a family!! Baby’s echocardiogram and abdominal scan are reported to be normal. We’ve been told that discharge probably won’t happen for 2 weeks due to him needing to be able to take regular full feedings each day. The hospital staff anticipate needing to watch him and make sure he is “feeding and growing” for about 10-14 days, but of course, this can change. Due to his current legal limbo with no adoptive family, we aren’t able to receive any written medical records for this boy. However medical information can be provided to this baby’s adoption specialist and she can prepare a written report. She will be attending his team meeting on Monday so she can receive the most up-to-date info. The neurologist will be able to give us more information on Monday, including information on life expectancy, since the pediatric neurologists are the ones who have researched and followed similar cases. We plan to share this information with all approved interested families as soon as possible. After that, families will give their final decision on if they wish to be considered. We are wishing for a miracle family for this little boy!!! After a family is selected, we’ll arrange a video call with baby and his medical team. Following that the adoptive parents will need to travel to the hospital right away. We’re hoping that if all goes well, these events will all happen within 2-3 work days. Thanks so much to those of you who have shared this baby’s info with others. Please continue to do so. Giving him a family will make all the difference in his life!” Thank you for sharing this!
