Kelly Ineson and Thomas Koummins They do not find comfort after having lost the baby just 14 days of her life due to herpes. Tragedy, however, gives them the power to warn other parents about how dangerous this virus is.
"We were always very careful and we did not leave anyone who looked sick or did not wash his hands, and we wondered if we were remembering someone who had kissed her with blisters but never would have let us," said the woman from Yorkshire , England, according to Daily Mail.
Kiara was the only one between Kelly Ineson and Tomas Kummins. The woman has more children than a previous marriage (Facebook).
They still do not know how Kiara has shrunk herpes. When it was accepted, the doctors brought her to the pharmacological coma and they told their parents that if they survived, they probably had brain damage. A few days later the machines that kept it alive disappeared because the infection became sepsis, inflammatory response to a serious infection.
The little girl was the couple's first daughter, although she was her fourth mother. "The whole family came to say goodbye and then left us to the end," remembers the woman who now seeks to raise awareness of the dangers of herpes.
The doctors led her to the pharmacological coma and told Kelly Inneson and Thomas Cummins that if she survived, she probably had a brain disorder (Facebook).
"There is not enough information about this disease, even for healthcare professionals, all I want is for parents and doctors to be educated about the common herpes virus and how devastating it can be," he said.
The herpes is highly infected and has two types: type 1 that causes colds and type 2, which usually causes genital herpes and can be transmitted to newborns during vaginal delivery. Less often, transmission may occur in the placenta or from a newborn to another by the hospital or family staff.
Herpes is highly contagious and has type 1 that causes colds and type 2, which typically causes type 1 genital herpes that cause colds and type 2, which usually causes genital herpes (Facebook).
Both types are dangerous for babies because their immune system is unable to fight the virus, although there are usually more cases than 2 than 1. Neonatal herpes can be found on the skin, eyes or mouth, central nervous system or spread to different parts of the body.
The infection causes high mortality, significant morbidity and leaves neurological consequences among survivors. It is highly contagious and although it is asymptomatic in adults it is advised not to come into contact with young children if they have visible blisters.
Kelly Inneson and Thomas Koummins are trying to warn other parents about how dangerous this virus is (Facebook).
"I started every detail of what was happening again and again desperately looking for an answer to what happened, but I do not think I will find it, and that kills me." The doctors told us that Chiara was very likely to have when the virus kissed him, infected with the virus. Never, even in my worst nightmare, I imagined that the kiss might kill my baby and I do not want another father to have to go through thatKelly admitted.
