Claire Henderson and her family were celebrating a birth of a baby girl, Brooke, when lethal tragedy scarcely altered everything.
A caller kissed a baby baby girl…unknowingly infecting her with a herpes simplex pathogen 1 (which is a aria that causes cold sores). It can be eliminated from oral-to-oral hit — and it can be fatal to newborns.
One night after a visit, Claire beheld that Brooke had a cold bruise and distended lips.
Frightened, she rushed her baby to a hospital. Once she got there, a doctors told her she was right to take a infection so seriously.
The sores were found on her face, lips, and in a behind of her throat. Both her mind and liver were tested for damage/infection.
This kind of infection is really rare, though can outcome in serious neurological illness or even death.
An anti-viral season saved Brooke — and now she is happy and healthy during home with her parents.
Most babies are stable by their mother’s antibodies, though these infections can still happen.
All mothers, fathers, and families should know that this pathogen can be lethal to immature babies…and do their best to strengthen their newborns from it.
