Who You ARE Supporting

My second pregnancy was a smooth, healthy one with no red flags on any of my routine ultrasounds. Rylan was born in Waterbury on Monday, October 6, 2015 weighing 9lbs 1oz. There were no red flags at the time of Rylan’s birth. It was not until 24 hours later, when he was ready to be discharged, that everything changed. Rylan went for two routine tests.

This is the test he failed….
