Hello everyone! My name is Abi and I am a WAHM with three beautiful children. My youngest child, Cooper, was born with Esophageal Atresia which was corrected at birth. He now has a G-tube inserted due to severe acid reflux and eating refusal.
He is also very developmentally slow, not walking yet and only saying a few words that are very hard to understand. He is scared of any type of new situation and will 'shell up' if he is nervous or too overwhelmed. When at home and playing with me, his father or his sisters, he is very happy and smiley. The doctor is bordering on diagnosing him with moderate-severe mental retardation but cannot diagnose until he is a bit older.
I am glad to have finally found an active forum community :)
