Persistent fetal circulation
Breanna Daniels

Breanna was born on July 28, 1993. She immediately quit breathing and had to be put on a respirator. After about an hour, we were told that she would have to go to Children's Hospital. After a few slight problems with the jet because of weather, she finally flew to Birmingham. This is when we found out she had persistent fetal circulation. Because of her breathing problems, we could not hold her until she was twelve days old. We stayed in ICU for three and a half weeks, and then in a room for one and a half weeks. The doctors, nurses, and all of the staff were wonderful. If it were not for God guiding their hands, Breanna would not be alive. She has a mild case of Cerebral Palsy, but is not limited on any activities. She is now 14 years old. We still see Dr. Killian for her arm and leg. Thanks to Children's Hospital for having a knowledgeable staff!!! They mean the world to our whole family. They not only took care of Breanna, but would make me leave to rest. I was able to do this because of the trust I had in them. Thank you, Children's Hospital, for being such a caring place. Breanna tries to help with fund raisers and with the stuffed animal giving to Children's Hospital because she knows how important it is.
