As if things couldn’t have gotten worse, one day the little boy’s mom heard him wheezing and struggling to breath. It turned out that this birthmark was moving down into his windpipe and began to obstruct his breathing!
The doctors had to make emergency surgery, but they had another option. Though it was a new therapy, it seemed like using beta blockers might actually help. Usually meant for high blood pressure, these drugs might help save little Ethan’s life.
What began as a scary concern about how the baby looked suddenly became life threatening.
Mom noticed her little boy struggling to breath one day, and she must have been horrified to learn that the birthmark was making its way down her baby’s airways. He was fighting to breath and could potentially die.
So Ethan’s parents had to make an incredibly hard choice: do they let doctors perform an invasive operation on their newborn, or do they give him pillsthat are usually for people with heart problems or high blood pressure?
Amazingly, just a few weeks later, Ethan’s birthmark totally disappeared and never came back.
Now, 7 years later, Ethan and his twin brotherAhren are inseparable, and though they had to spend the first few months of their lives apart from each other, things these days are about as perfect as you could ask for!
