There is always a miracle in someone who can survive an unusual condition. Likewise with the story of Jaxon who struggled to live with his shortcomings. Even now that Jaxon can celebrate his first birthday, he is strong with the half brain he has.
Jaxon, was born with an imperfect condition with a skull and brain that he has is not common than others. He was born with a skull and half brain but nevertheless managed to survive. In fact, many do not believe that this baby whose full name is Jaxon Emmett Buell can survive. Not only the public did not believe in this miracle, even the doctors who handled it also thought that Jaxon could only survive a few days.
As it is known that the brain is one of the fatal organs to regulate other body systems. Jaxon’s condition is thought to be a rare condition where he has an extreme brain disorder. The negligence experienced by Jaxon had already been noticed by the doctor while still in the womb. Even doctors suggested ending the womb of Britanny Buell, Jaxon’s mother.
At the time of the womb examination and it was discovered that the baby Britanny Buell was carrying had an abnormality the doctor suggested terminating the pregnancy. It’s just that at that time Brittanny still maintains a pregnancy that has just entered the fetal age of 23 weeks. She and her husband still want to raise their child.
The choice given by the doctor at that time was not heard by Brittany and her husband Brandon. She chose to keep her pregnancy. Even as quoted on the Daily Mail page. That at all Brandon will give his efforts to keep fighting to raise the fetus until the day of delivery arrives. In fact, he said that they agreed to still have children at any risk and listen to their first sounds when they were born.
Even a married couple from Florida who still want to keep Britanny’s pregnancy admitted that they never gave up. Not even long ago, in 2014, Jaxon was born by caesarean section. Although the baby boy of the young couple from the United States was born safely, his skull has an unusual condition. Jaxon’s skull was not round, even doctors diagnosed Jaxon with anencephaly.
Anencephaly is a condition that occurs during the first formation in the uterus. This condition is often referred to as a congenital birth defect that causes loss of central nerve bundles. Even the Center for Disease Control and Prevention says that babies born in the United States, about one in four thousand plus births and have this condition usually don’t have a long life expectancy. It’s just that Jaxon can show the public and the medical team, he can fight until he is one year old.
In the first week of birth, Jaxon was very apprehensive and even struggled with using a tube. The surgeons were already trying to understand Jaxon’s condition at that time. Many ways have been done to increase Jaxon’s life expectancy. In fact, he was treated intensively at Boston Hospital especially for children. At that time, the team of doctors found a special diagnosis, namely Jaxon’s condition, who had microhydranencephaly.
Mother Brittany always thought positively that Jaxon could survive. It’s true that the stimulation given by his mother for 24 hours made Jaxon even stronger for life. Until now Jaxon is one year old.
