Sister kiss her dying brother to say goodbye then a real miracle Happened!

An awesome moment when her sister blew a raspberry on her abdomen a brain-damaged two-year-old girl wakes up after days of worrying that they were running out of time with poppy she miraculously responded to her sister macy by blowing a raspberry on her breast and laughing the parents of a young girl claimed that her elder sister blowing a raspberry on her abdomen brought her back to life

Poppy smith two years old sustained brain injury on her second birthday and doctors said she had a poor chance of survival poppy on the other hand has defied expectations and is crawling again just nine weeks later the tiny tot had a disorder called mobius syndrome which causes her face muscles to malfunction after her parents stephen age 34 and amy 31 noticed that she dribbled her meals

Frequently she was diagnosed poppy was born on december 17 2014 at 29 weeks and weighed only 2 pounds she was allowed home to barrow in furnace cumbria after three months on a neonatal unit weighing four pounds six ounces despite physicians predictions that poppy’s growth would be delayed and that she would never walk or talk normally she exceeded all of her milestones poppy suffered a couple hospitalizations due

To respiratory issues but as she approached her second birthday in december 2016 physicians were quite happy with her development that was the incredible moment when she giggled when macy blew a raspberry on her stomach macy’s mother amy when amy went to wake her up only days before she turned two she couldn’t get her to wake up we could feel her heart beat but she was unresponsive said stephen a designer we

Had a feeling things weren’t quite right she was breathing but she was gasping for air says the narrator she was airlifted to barrow and furnace general hospital where she was stabilized before being transferred to liverpool’s alder hay children’s hospital for more specialized treatment poppy’s condition improved so dramatically the next day that she was taken off the ventilator her parents recognized something wasn’t

Quite right two days later on her second birthday her eyes were starting to slide to the back of her skull steven explained her lungs were full of fluid and she suffered another respiratory arrest according to a chest x-ray that night she began to jerk and have seizures she was rapidly deteriorating when i requested if she’d be able to walk or talk again they said they didn’t know if she would live it was

Heartbreaking when it began to sink in an mri exam two days later revealed some grave effects when she returned from the scan physicians pulled us aside into the side room and told us she had serious hypoxic brain damage stephen continued i inquired as to whether she would be able to walk or speak again but they replied they didn’t know if she would live it was heartbreaking and it started sinking they said we’d have to wait and see but

Things didn’t look promising all i needed was for them to reassure me that she was going to be fine medics were able to re-establish poppy’s respiration but she remained unconscious she couldn’t feel anything and didn’t respond to a torch being shown in her eyes stephen continued we had her in our arms but she was staring right through us that’s the most intense pain i’ve ever experienced in my life the agony was

Unbearable poppy’s sisters alicia now 14 macy 12 and her brother alfie 11 spent christmas in the hospital with their family believing it might be their last on christmas eve we went to midnight mass and lit candles for her stephen explained i asked the priest if he might come and bless her poppy was transferred to a high dependency unit on christmas day and her entire family came to wish her a merry

Christmas but then after days of worrying that they were running out of time with poppy she surprisingly replied to her sister macy by blowing a raspberry on her breast and laughing that was the magical moment when she laughed as macy blew a raspberry on her belly stephen continued it was incredible we later learned that it was usual for persons in the state to express emotion but it appeared to us

That she was responding then she started twitching her limbs and legs doctors speculated that it could be spinal reflexes but i knew it was much more poppy’s extraordinary recovery baffled doctors and she gradually recovered day by day learning to speak and crawl all over again we couldn’t believe it steven stated it had just been eight weeks it’s fantastic she’s come a long way

Doctors are perplexed she shouldn’t be doing what she’s doing they say they’re overjoyed that she is but they didn’t expect her to be she’s going to show them all how incorrect they are the family is now raising funds for two weeks of intensive physiotherapy at the cosmos suite rehabilitation unit in italy believing that it must act soon to help poppy return to normal we want to get more physio for her sooner rather than later stephen added

Because we believe the sooner we do the more of her mobility we’ll be able to save our hospital’s been wonderful but it’s little and they don’t have the resources to provide her with that level of care she only attends one physiotherapy session each week we’re hoping that having it every day will aid in her mobility improvement she’s still wobbly but i believe she’ll be able to walk on her own soon and

She’s already come a long way all we want to do is raise money to help her out a little more and we don’t want to waste any time mobius syndrome mobius syndrome is a rare congenital existing at birth condition caused by a lack of development in the facial nerves that regulate some eye movements and facial emotions the nerves that control speech chewing and swallowing can also be affected

Symptoms and signs these symptoms and severity of mobius syndrome differ widely from person to person one facial paralysis or weakness affecting at least one but generally both sides of the face two paralysis of sideways or lateral movement of the eyes and three preservation of vertical motion of the eyes are the classically accepted diagnostic criteria

Other cranial nerves are less commonly impacted drooling and crossed eyes are common in infants with mobius syndrome the youngster is forced to turn the head to follow objects since the eyes do not move from side to side infants with no facial expression are typically described as having a mask-like face which is particularly noticeable when laughing or sobbing affected infants may also have feeding

Challenges such as difficulty swallowing and sucking corneal ulceration can occur if the eyelids are left open while sleeping there are a slew of other abnormalities to consider a short deformed tongue and or an unusual small jaw are common in children with mobius syndrome it’s also possible that you have a cleft pellet feeding and respiratory problems are caused by these disorders ear infections are common in children

With a cleft palate external ear abnormalities might include underdevelopment of the outer region of the ear or complete lack of the outer section of the air hearing loss is likely if the eighth cranial nerve is damaged anomalies of the teeth are not rare cavities are more likely to develop in children some of the children who are afflicted have speech problems and developmental disabilities

Over 50 percent of children with mobius syndrome have skeletal abnormalities of the limbs clubbed feet and under development of the lower legs are examples of lower limb malformations webbing of the fingers under development or disappearance of the fingers and or under development of the hand are examples of upper limb male formations scoliosis occurs in a few children and under development of the chest muscles

And the breast on one side of the body occurs in around 15 percent of patients because to upper body weakness some affected children have difficulty reaching specific milestones such as crawling or walking however most children eventually catch up minor intellectual disability is rarely related with mobius syndrome the autistic spectrum is a term used to describe a group of children there’s no definitive link between mobius syndrome

And autism some research have suggests that children with mobius syndrome are more likely to develop autism spectrum disorders however other investigations have not proven this and imply that any such link is exaggerated mobius syndrome is frequently linked to a slew of social and psychological issues observers may misinterpret what an affected individual is thinking feeling

Or intending due to a lack of facial expressions and the inability to smile although clinical anxiety and sadness are not more common in children and adolescents with mobius syndrome uncertainty and frustration may cause affected persons to avoid social situations causes in the absence of familial history of the disorder most cases of mobius syndrome occur at random for unexplained

Causes with a gene map location of 13q 12.2 q13 the syndrome is known as online mendelian inheritance in man omim number fifteen thousand seven hundred sporadic mutations in the plx nd1 and rev3l genes have also been found in a number of patients and validated in animal models to induce a constellation of symptoms compatible with mobius syndrome familial patterns have been found in a

Few cases mobius syndrome is most likely multifactorial meaning that both genetic and environmental factors play a role in its development it’s possible that distinct underlying causes exist in different circumstances heterogeneity there is evidence that mobius syndrome is inherited as an autosomal dominant trait in familial instances when just one copy of a defective gene is required for the disease to manifest

It’s known as dominant genetic disorder the faulty gene can be inherited from either parent or be caused by a new mutation of the affected person the likelihood of transferring the defective gene from one parent to their kids is 50 percent for each pregnancy regardless of the child’s gender the range of symptoms in mobius syndrome reflects a hind brain developmental abnormality the cause of mobius syndrome has been

Attributed to a variety of theories one theory is that the disease is caused by reduced or interrupted blood supply to the growing embryo during pregnancy according to new research a shortage of blood affects the cranial nerve nuclei in some parts of the lower brain stem an environmental mechanical or genetic factor could be to blame for the absence of blood flow nonetheless the source of the disease is unknown necessitating more scientific and clinical data thanks for reading.
