Our post today is a guest blog entry from Renee O’Donnell, Baby N’s mom. Baby N has Food Protein Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome (FPIES) and her mom Renee is hard at work raising money for the FPIES United Family Fund. We’d like to thank Renee for guest blogging for us.
My name is Renee; I am a wife and a mother of three magnificent children. My youngest has FPIES (Food Protein Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome). She was diagnosed at 8 months after one of the longest battles of our life.
Our journey started the day we found out we were pregnant. Every mother becomes overjoyed with the thought of having a beautiful healthy baby. But to even think for one moment that something could be wrong is unfathomable.
