It has been one year since we nearly lost our son, Tyce, to pertussis (whooping cough). He was only 2 weeks old and had a little cough. We were told by his Doctor that he looked okay and to just keep an eye out for a fever. We kept a close eye on him but he never got a fever. His cough got progressively worse and he started to have moments when he would gasp for air. My husband was determined to find out what was wrong and immediately started researching online. He came across pertussis (whooping cough). As I watched the videos, I did not want to believe that my son was sick with pertussis. He had not made the Whooping sound. Later that day, he had a coughing spell and while i was holding him his lips turned blue and he stopped breathing. It was a horrible and helpless feeling. We rushed him to the ER with our own video of Tyce in hand.

We had an amazing team of Doctors and Nurses that were assigned to Tyce. And our little warrior, Tyce, had an inner strength and will to fight. We were BLESSED that he recovered and a year later is doing well. My hope is this video helps another family in the way that other families videos helped ours.

PLEASE MAKE SURE TO GET VACCINATED. IT CAN SAVE A LIFE.
