Kemuel was 6 weeks old when he woke up from a nap and was crying. His birthmother picked him up and tossed him into a recliner and started punching the sides of his head. She only stopped because the stones in her wedding band cut his scalp and he started bleeding. She called my stepson at work and said she tripped over the cat and fell while holding him and he hit his head. My stepson drove home from work and called 911. His head started swelling in the ER. He started seizing and was intubated. The doctors said it was the worst case of abusive head trauma they had ever seen and they didn't expect him to live past 48 hours. Then when he did they said he would be a vegetable. He is not a vegetable thank goodness but he is very limited in what he can do. He was discharged from the hospital 2-3 weeks later and into our care. He is now 3 years old. He has the mentality of a 3 month old. He has seizures daily. Allan cannot walk, talk, crawl, see and has difficulty hearing. He can smile and let us know when he is hungry. Allan loves music. He loves interaction. He has recently been put on oxygen. The older he gets the more he seems to decline. We are not sure if he will even reach his 4th birthday. Doctors have already started to bring up placing a tracheostomy. We have signed an out of hospital DNR and he has been placed on hospice. His mother was given 10 years deferred adjudication probation. We have custody of him and we are in the process of adopting him and changing his name to Allan Wagner.
