XP from parenting. I don't know if I need to intro, but I have a 16 month old DS, and usually post on Nov 12 moms or parenting.
My coworker had a baby last week at 37 weeks, and it seemed like everything was ok, but now they've found that the baby has something called CMV. This is usually asymptomatic, but for him, the doctors have said that he will likely have hearing loss, liver and bone marrow problems, and decreased IQ. He will likely be in the NICU for a few more weeks until he can eat on his own and regulate his body temperature and platelet count.
I responded to her email with an email to let her know that I'm thinking of her and praying for her as they determine the best way to take care of their sweet baby, but what else can I do? They live in a different state, but I think I can ask another coworker who lives there what restaurant she likes and send a gift card. Or would a BRU or Amex gift card be more appropriate? I'll also have to think about what to write in the card. Please send T&Ps for this sweet family.
