When his mother Bethany Homar was taken for an emergency C-section at 26 weeks and three days into her pregnancy, doctors warned her there was a good possibility her tiny boy wouldn’t survive. A placental abruption is when the placenta separates from the uterine wall prior to delivery. A newborn baby born weighing less than two pounds has made it home after a tremendous fight for survival. Isaiah Gordon’s heart stopped during the terrifying 17 minutes of his delivery
The medical professionals at Sheffield Children’s Hospital in South Yorkshire gave Bethany two options: stop the bleeding and keep the baby alive, or take a chance on a cesarean section with a minimal probability of success. His mother said, “I had two options.” Though my kid is extremely vulnerable, I must give it life. I must be patient with my kid. He was born with a hole in his heart and an open valve – which doctors will continue to monitor as he grows. the doctors told me they had resuscitated him for 17 minutes and if it took a few more minutes they would have to stop. He made it through at the last second.
He was very ill and needed many blood transfusions, but he fought. The tiny baby had low blood pressure and had to have multiple blood transfusions to save his life. But fortunately, brain scans showed only two small bleeding spots and no signs of brain damage.
Bethany’s pregnancy was extremely smooth, until at 26 weeks pregnant, she started having cramps and bleeding. My cramps are just like menstrual cramps.
And in August, 112 days after his harrowing April 7 delivery, he was able to return home with an oxygen tank. Bethany, a 28-year-old mother of four, and Reuben Gordon, a 28-year-old partner, were thrilled to welcome him home.
He is home and healthy now? I can’t believe it. He’s a miracle,” his mother exclaimed. There seemed to be no end in sight for a while. He is now 7 pounds, 13 ounces, and cooing and grinning at us. After Bethany was taken to the hospital, everything occurred so quickly, Reuben commented. I was able to see Isaiah soon after he was born, despite the fact that I was unable to be with her while she underwent the c-section. He managed a modest yawn despite his small size, which gave me optimism for his health. But he struggled with a serious illness for a while, which was terrifying. Just be glad he’s back, please.
