James had encephalocele at birth. He's going to need all the supports he can.
29 October 2018, noon, I was admitted to the hospital for having constant contraction. However, I only gave birth to James the next morning at 7am sharp after being monitored in the labour room for 8hours. Little did we know that James brought a surprise with him from the moment he was born. My OB was surprised as well because she didn't see it in any of the scanning that I had. Later that afternoon, the paediatrician came to see us(my husband and I) and told us that James has encephalocele.
It's a very rare case and honestly, I've never heard of one till I got my sweet James. Less than 2 weeks from now he'll be meeting his neurosurgeon for the first time to discuss what's next. According to the surgeon who explained to me the result of James' MRI, he'll undergo an operation to put the brain cells back inside and remove the sac. Let's pray and hope that whatever is inside the sac at the back of his head is just dead tissue and James can live a normal life just like his older brother and sister. Amen.
We still owe the hospital for the MRI and room charges, and with the surgery coming up, we really need all the help we can get. Therefore I started this crowdfunding for sweet lil James because I love him so much from the first time I knew I was pregnant with him and I want the best for him just like his brother and sister.
