    Oh no, so sorry to hear that. Will definitely keep your baby in my prayers. Have you asked for someone to translate for you if your having problems understanding English? Its scary enough to have a critically ill baby , but to not understand what is being said must be very scary for you. May God watch over & keep you baby safe.

    Please tell a nurse that you are not understanding what they are saying and that you need someone to translate what the doctor was saying.
