My son Passed from it at 6 days old i've been doing research and its one of those conditions that if they catch it in time the child can get surgery but if its not caught its within 12 hours they pass, I'm sorry for your loss ♥

I'm so sorry, my heart goes out to you. My son got NEC at 3 weeks old, it was so awful, we were told he might not make it but treatment had stared early enough. He suffered complications in the bowel and developed a heart murmur but he made it.

I am so sorry for your loss. I haven't dealt with it personally, but do realize it is a devastating problem and very hard to treat well and in time.
