Mother Ee Chooi Wen blames herself during pregnancy has caused stomach pains and needs an injection, which also affects the child's lungs. She was depressed for a time. She is thankful for the accompany of her family. Now she is following the doctor's advice to breastfeed exclusively. She hopes that the child can pass thru the difficulties.
Ee Chooi Wen from Ipoh was found to be unable to breathe on his own, suffering from persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN), neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS), and neonatal abstinence syndrome. Infant respiratory distress syndrome (IRDS) requires hospitalization in the ICU, and the huge medical expenses burden the parents.
The doctor said that this is a very difficult case because the medicine the mother took during pregnancy caused the baby to have sequelae after birth, including drug addiction. The doctor originally expected that the baby would need to be observed in the ICU for 3 weeks, but fortunately, the baby is progressing well, but her weight dropped from 3.2 kg at birth to 2.8 kg. If the baby gains weight, she can be discharged, otherwise, she will need to stay in the hospital for observation for a few days.
As the funds they need have been raised, the parents are very grateful for the assistance from the generous public to keep their child out of danger. They will continue to protect their child and promise to continue to help those in need.
