My grand-daughter was born at 27 weeks. She was 1 pound 4 ounces, she had many problems such as the need of 100% oxygen, jaundice, acid reflux, hernia surgery, sleepapnea, 2 blodd transfusions, anemia, and finally brain bleed, it was categorized as a 3.
She was in NICU for almost 4 months.
She is 6 months old and yesterday the doctors told my daughter that she is at 1/3 % of her height and weight.
She has not gained weight or grown in almost three weeks.
Could all her birth problems or the brain bleed had cause her to have a growth hormone problem.
In short could she have dwarfism?
