: I have been researching TOF and ECD for the last 2 years, off and on, because my son died as a result
: of these 2 things. He was only 18 days old. I had several ultrasounds while I was pregnant and was told
: he was ok. At his 2 week checkup, I was told I had a healthy baby. 4 days later he died. He was some
: what pale the 2 last days, which I thought was due to him vomiting. I called a Dr. about it, I was out of
: state at the time, and he suggested the vomiting may have just been colic, and told me to give him Pedialite
: instead of nursing him till the vomiting stopped. He had not been blue, and we had no idea what was
: happening to him. At the ER, the Dr. who tried to revive him, said he had no idea why he died. We had
: to wait for the autopsy report and that took forever! Anyway, the point of my rambling, is I would like to hear
: from anyone who could shed some light on these defects. I am interseted in personal stories also.
: Thank you.
