How to test the tube baby
The infant who survived a botched circumcision and now has the test tube babies in his stomach says he is grateful.
“It’s a blessing,” said Kari Eberhart.
“I’ve always had a soft spot for babies, and I’ve always been a little bit curious to see what would happen if I got to see a little baby.”
Now, I’m just looking forward to seeing what’s going to happen to the little ones,” he said.”
And I’m sure they’ll do just fine.
“He is now being treated at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Toronto.
The baby who survived was born on Nov. 18, 2012.
His parents, David and Linda Eberhard, had been waiting since July to have a baby, but when it was announced the procedure would not be performed, they went to see the doctor.
They had the baby circumcised on their home floor, but then went to the doctor at the Children’s hospital, hoping he would agree to the procedure, David Eberharts said.
Instead, the doctor informed them the procedure was a medical emergency.
The Eberharsts were told by doctors at the hospital that the baby would need surgery and that the operation would not occur until after the baby was discharged.”
He said he cried when he realized the baby had been cut open.””
We had just taken a picture of our son, and we had no idea what was going to go on.”
He said he cried when he realized the baby had been cut open.
“The doctors had to cut it open so the baby could breathe,” he recalled.
“But I still cried.
It’s just like a big sigh of relief when you think you’ve seen the end of something.
I think it’s just the relief of knowing that everything is going to be okay.”
David Eberhorn said the parents knew that the surgery would not happen until the child was discharged, but they were too scared to get to the hospital.
He said it was a stressful time for the Eberbarts, but he said he felt lucky that they were able to see their son’s future.
“We had a lot of pressure,” he explained.
“To see our son grow, and then see that, and see what the future will hold for him, that’s really what it’s all about.”
David and Linda were grateful to the baby for coming home and said they are grateful that they survived the surgery.
“What you see here is the first step in his life,” David said.
He hopes the child’s life will be just as good as his own.
“He will be happy,” David added.
“If he gets to see that little one and see how he’s going, then he’ll be so happy.”
David said he plans to bring the baby home as soon as possible and has set up a GoFundMe account to help cover medical expenses.
