altBenthe was born in Hengelo hospital on 2nd November 2004. On first appearance everything seemed normal. She was allowed to come home with us. The next morning Benthe looked blue-grey and we immediately went to the hospital. She needed oxygen, her saturation level was around 50. She couldn’t drink by herself and so was fed via a tube. An echo was made. Her heart looked a little enlarged but it was not alarming. During her birth Benthe had swallowed amniotic fluid so people thought it was an infection. Even after a course of antibiotics she didn’t improve. The oxygen support remained necessary.
