“A random massive stroke”: Kidron Flynn’s Story

I have been blessed with 2 children as well. My first spent nearly 2 weeks in the NICU after suffering from a random massive stroke hours after birth after a normal, healthy pregnancy. I was hospitalized for a month before my daughter arrived because I had a small placental abruption. I tell you this not because I feel I can in any way understand your grief and experience yet I can relate to the fact that there are emotional and financial tolls that shadow you long after its genesis.

When you spoke so eloquently and emotionally I wanted to hug your family and your children in support. I want you to know that your family and your experience will continue to live with me in a collective of perseverance and strength we all share in parenthood. May your family continue to grow and heal.
