DS is not a disease, you will not die from it, I promise
Moses very very very very sick. 6 years old.
He was stressed.
He was hungry.
He was alone.
He had medical conditions un-related to his Down Syndrome!
These conditions were not always properly cared for.
Children died around him and they did not die from CP, TBI, DS, ADHD, RAD, or any other diagnosis they may have had.
Some died from hydrocephalus~ only because it was left untreated !!
Children with Down Syndrome do not die from Down Syndrome.
But they sure do die way too easily from neglect.
He is fashionably wearing- a pumpkin hat, orange monkey fleece top, each arm sports a Lufthansa flight toy!! (LOL!!) and last but not least American flag socks!! ROTFLOL!!
He is sitting in the "King" chair made with LOVE and care with Duplo Legos; by his 10 yr old sister Lysa!
In fact all 3 of our new boys caught a really bad cold with us. And I say really bad because our 8,9, and 10 yr old, Gabe 17 and Tom and I had it too. It was a bad cold. We thought for sure that the 3 new boys were headed for Urgent Care and antibiotics.
LOVE, good nutrition and lots of diaper changes later. (don't forget LOVE is an action word!)
They have recovered from the cold all on their own!!
We are all! healthy here!!
