Mom to Justice 7/02 (he calls me mum mum) and Jordan 2/04

Jordan born emergency c-sect. due to placental abruption. g-tube at 3 weeks then released from nicu to home,(dx w/hypoxic brain injury, poor feeding, seizure activity) fundo 5 months later for severe reflux. worked great for almost 2 years then reflux again w/aspiration causing respiratory problems. g-j tube 6/06 Trached 7/06, can not repair fundo yet, doc. said it would be too tight. Jordan has been dx w/cp, seizures, I am not sure of the actual technical dx for the trach, but it was a very long summer spent in & out of many hospitals, with one issue after another. (My mind is a blur for those few months.)

Jordan is a very sociable, happy boy. Takes everything in stride & is well aware of whats going on. Loves to interact with other kids and get snuggled.

Justice is my high energy mad man. Also very sociable, loves to play with his brother and, figured out how to play with him which is awesome. Loves to HUG!, goes to preschool, & helps take care of his brother.

Me, very happy I found this place.

Mom to Justice 7/02 never stopping mad man, and Jordan 2/04,c.p. trach.
Tracheomalacia, gj-tube, reflux w/nissen, seizures, spasticity.... & it's official the epilepsy dx.
LOVES Sponge Bob, birthday party's,& misses school
