The premature baby, Quinton Sim, was finally released from the hospital before the Mid-Autumn Festival after four months in the hospital. The parents took the baby home for reunion.
In addition to the need to feed the baby with a catheter every 3 hours (8 times a day), the family also needs to pump sputum before feeding by the catheter, and also need to dilute the phlegm every 6 hours to facilitate sputum suction, and the catheter needs to be replaced twice a week. More importantly, the ventilator and oximeter are followed 24 hours a day.
In addition, children need to bring a ventilator and oximeter to the hospital for follow-up visits every month, and parents need to learn how to take care of the baby, how to replace the catheter, how to intubate, how to clean the tracheostomy, how to suck sputum, and Observe the child's hypoxia and so on. This is not an easy task.
Although the baby is unable to breathe and swallow on his own, his condition is much improved compared to when he was born.
With the RM32,000 needed for the baby already raised, the parents are very grateful for the assistance from the community, which helped them through the difficult times twice.
