Two parents have described their “terrible” day with their baby girl in the ICU after they thought they were going to have a “normal” day at home.
The parents, from the U.S., had arrived in Chicago from the suburbs of Detroit on Monday for a routine visit to the hospital, where the child’s condition had been deemed stable.
“I was just feeling very relaxed and happy,” said Brittany B. Smith, who was at the hospital with her boyfriend, Adam, and their daughter, Lola.
“She was still breathing and I could feel her heartbeat, and we were able to take a little bit of a break.”
Lola was born three days after the parents, who were visiting from Ohio, were due to return home from their trip to the city.
The couple said their son, a first grader at the time, was so responsive and responsive to her, that they had a hard time explaining why she was still alive.
“He’s so energetic, he was like, ‘Mama, Mama, Mama!'” said Smith, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology at University of Michigan Medical School.
When the couple returned home to Ohio, Lulu had been brought into the hospital and was being evaluated. “
But we were pretty worried that we were going into an environment where he was going to die.”

“They just told us to take her out and relax,” said Smith.
“So, we went back to the hotel and we went to bed and we got up and we just went to work.
It was very, very stressful.”
They were told Lulu was going into shock and would have to be put on ventilators.
But Smith said her son’s “energy was so bright, he would just jump in the air and start running.”
She said Lulu kept jumping into the air for a few minutes after being put on the ventilator, but was then taken into a room.
“It was like being in the middle of a movie,” said B. S. Smith.
Lulu’s parents were relieved when they arrived home on Tuesday morning.
“My son was in the NICU for three hours and was really breathing,” said Ms. Smith of their son’s recovery.
“All the nurses were telling me that he’s just starting to come around.
He was smiling and smiling and just loving to be there with us.”
B.S. Smith said the couple went home and tried to relax.
“At first, it was really scary because we were expecting the worst, and I was worried because I don’t know if this is normal,” said the mother.
“Then we started thinking about what was happening.
I told my boyfriend, ‘It’s going to be okay.
It’s just a little shock.'”
Lulu made it to the nursery by 4 p.m. and was immediately transferred to a hospital room, where doctors found a “severe” infection in her lungs.
Smith and B.B. Smith returned to the U, where they met up with the couple’s daughter, who is also being treated in the same hospital.
Smith told the couple their daughter was born with a genetic defect and was given a different name.
“The doctors told us that it would take at least a year to learn to be able to give our daughter a name,” said L.
Smith said they were both devastated when they heard the news of Lulu being born in a NICU.
“Our family has never been so sad,” said her daughter.
“As a mother, I just hope she can feel like she belongs.” “
The couple is hopeful Lulu will survive the next few days. “
