My grandson has baby shaken syndrome. He was shook and slammed down by my daughters boyfriend while she was at work. My grandson suffered at the age of two months old and has to live the rest of his life with the brain damage and the Cabral palsy that was caused by the attack. Nicholas was a defesless 2 month old. June 30,2014 he was took to kings daughters hospital by ambulance. He was not responding when the call was made to 911. Test that was done at kings daughters hospital showed he was abused he was shaken. I will never forget my grandson gasping for air laying on his back and trying to cry but no sound could come out. There’s a small left sided subdural hematoma measuring 5-6 mm in greatest thickness.Nicholas was transported to Cabell Huntington Hospital we was still fight for his life. His brain swelled, his head and face swelled. He had to be put in a coma. We was told he had a 50/50 chance and not to expect it to be the better outcome. His retinas was bleeding, his lungs collapsed and had to have tubes in both lungs. He died and was brought back, he had 18 seizures in 24 hours. Every time he had a seizure he had to get a shot. It was explained that the shot would reboot his brain every time he got it. If he made it we wouldn’t no if he had any brain damage till the age of 5. Nicholas was in Cabell Huntington Hospital for three weeks. Not knowing from one day to the next if he was going to die. He had to hand physical therapy for his right hand and feet. Then August 30 2017 my poor disabled grandson was abused again. This time no one was charged but he was abused. Cps intervened. Nicholas had a not on the back of his head, a bruise on his cheek and both ears was bruised. The help me grow lady called cps and the ambulance. By the time Nicholas at the age of 3 now got to the hospital his forehead and nose was swollen and started getting two black eyes. His mother said he fell  two feet out of bed the day before and hit is head. His bed was a mattress on the floor. When asked about the old bruises she told emt his bruise on left ear might be from his brother hitting him with a stick. His brother was 2 years old. His mother told the doctor he falls a lot causing bruises. She also said his younger brother hits him causing bruises. She stated the toddler in home is causing injuries. August 30 2017 test showed Nicholas has old appearing bruises noted lateral face overlying lateral zygoma. Appearing Russo swelling noted medial aspect of the orbit and brow. New appearing contusion noted to parietal area on right. Ecchymosis to bilateral pinnacle of the ears. Nicholas had a subgaleal hematoma over the right parietal skull measuring 4.8x1.4 cm. Questionable area of low attenuation subcritical white matter right frontal lobe. By the time I got home with Nicholas he had two black eyes, bruises on his ears, a bruise on his cheek, his forhead and nose was swollen. His little brother Jacob had a bruise on his back, a bruise on the side of his leg and a bruise on his eye lid. Our children and grandchild are being abused, being shaken to the point they bleed from the brain and some have died from this. The children are suffering and having to deal with brain damage, eye damage, left with not being able to walk or talk and sadly some never make it. Nicholas his In speech, occupational and physical therapy because a man who wasn’t his father shook him and slammed him down on something hard. He killed him. Thankfully he was brought back to us. My grandson has to live the rest of his life being disabled because of a act of another. The man who shook him only served a little over a year while my grandson is having to ware glasses, a hand brace, a foot brace. He can’t talk like a normal 5 year old he can’t think like a normal 5 year old. He can’t dress himself and he’s not been able to get potty trained because of the brain damage. Please help these children our children our grandchild our furcture . There is a little 2 year old girl fighting for her life as I speak. Her mother was at work and her boyfriend shook her and slammed her down. She was unresponsive for 15 minutes and the paramedics brought her back. She’s had to have surgery because her brain swelled up and was still swelling swelling. We need better laws . We need more prison time for these men who are disabling and killing our children. We need a Nicholas law that stands up for our children.
