Hydrocephalus is a fatal disease that causes buildup of water in the brain due to which baby's head swells up to three or four times than its normal size. A baby born with swollen head has little chances of survival. Somehow, even if the baby managed to survive, his/her quality of life is very poor.
Unfortunately, mother's happiness was short-lived when her baby was diagnosed with hydrocephalus during fifth month of pregnancy.
But mother decided to give birth to her baby.
Jillian and her son Robert proved the doctors wrong.
Baby born with swollen head is very intelligent and fun-loving.
He faces developmental delays but is smart enough to read, count and identify animals, shapes and colors.
He is fighting every single minute of his life.
The 6-year-old boy has challenged all the odds and is leading a happy life now.
Lots of prayers, medical care, love and support from his mom contributed in making his life better.
Jillian explained, "Right now he has a wheelchair and a walker. He is very strong-willed and likes to move his own chair. He gets frustrated when others try and push it!"
God bless him!
