Batteries: Unexpected killers

john_jr

Simply put, we owe our son John Jr’s life to the brave, passionate and dedicated doctors and nurses at the Montreal Children’s Hospital. Please read my story in the hopes it will help prevent other families from going through such a stressful experience.

Meet Milo

Milo

Milo was considered a micro-preemie. At his lowest, he weighed only 450 grams, earning him the nick-name of “the one-pound-miracle”. His brainstem and lungs were not fully formed. Tubes came out of every part of his tiny body as he lay in the incubator in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). On his third day of life, Anissa finally got to hold and kiss Milo. “Holding him skin to skin, after 3 days, was the first time I felt like he was really mine,” she says.
