We have three kids, all were born premature due to some issues with my wife's "lady parts". Our first child was born in kidney failure and was on
dialysis within 48hr of being born (and he was just over 2lb at birth). Being new parents we were not really up to speed on the issues with vaccines
and he got his in the 6 months he was in the NICU after birth and a few leading up to his kidney transplant at 2 years old (along with human growth
hormone). The other two were born even smaller then him and received no vaccines (not easy to accomplish when they are in the NICU for so long). The
middle child had no issues in the NICU or after, she is perfectly healthy.The youngest had bowel issues, a rupture of the small intestines due to meds
given to close a valve in the heart, common in preemies. He had to have a second surgery later to open the bowel up again after he started vomiting
stool, that was scary.
The only issues any of them have now is the oldest, who was vaccinated initially has behavioral, sensory and learning issues. The other two, who have
had no vaccines are perfectly normal, if not a bit advanced mentally.
I will admit that I can't say with any real certainty that the oldest's issues are due to the vaccines only (he has had 19 surgeries), but the two
that have not been vaccinated are not suffering any ill effects. It's a personal preference of our not to vaccinate, we share that infomation if we
are asked but tell new parents they need to research it for themselves before they decide one way or the other.
It's like I tell people when they ask if I'm getting a flu shot, I don't get flu shots and I never get the flu. People I know that get a flu shot
every year end up being out of work for a week or two every flu season. You do the math.
