On June 17, 2006 King Kaleb was born ectionVia Emergency C-S in San Diego, CA. To a Loving Mother, Father and an 8 yr old Big Brother. He was Born premature and was said to have ingested amniotic fluid and breathing was labored. He was placed in the NICU where he was exposed to spinal Meningitis. After TONS of specialists and 7 spinal taps, Finding infection and fluids on his brain, having seizures/Tremors and high fevers, It looked like he was getting better. He was place back with me for a few hrs and his breathing was quick and shallow and wisked away again to the NICU. He got better and was then place in the PICU.
When he did come home his Daddy, A United States Marine was deployed to Iraq for 9 months. After being home for 3 weeks Kaleb had a 103 temp and he was placed back in the NICU and again a spinal tap. He was Diagnosed with Spinal Meneningitis again. This time he stayed for a week.
*Since his birth Kaleb has suffered with ADHD tremors/seizures, Neurologic Problems, OCD, Anxiety, Severe weight loss, Having fevers often, A major underbite and facial deformity, Mood Mania due 5 diff meds he has been on, Autism Spectrum Disorder Scale, Has been to DUKE for an EEG and MRI, and places around here seeing specialist.
