A 20-day-old baby born with a deadly aneurysm has been saved with the help of superglue.
It all started when Ashlyn Julian, born May 16, went from quiet all the time to screaming and throwing up.
‘At that point,’ says mom Gina Julian, ‘you know something’s not right.
Fearing the worst, Ashlyn’s parents rushed the tiny girl to Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Kansas. That’s where an ultra-sound uncovered something lurking inside her brain.
‘[That’s] as far as we made it because they saw something in her head at that point in time, so they decided to transfer her to a hospital that was better equipped for what was going on,’ Julian told CNN.
The decision turned out to be a smart one, but no one could have known that the moment doctors at the second hospital diagnosed Ashlyn with an almond-sized aneurysm in her brain.
