Medical Miracle Cures Baby With No Brain!
A baby was born four years ago with no brain at all. Doctors said there was no chance of him surviving. However, Noah Wall, the baby with no brain, proves that a medical miracle can really happen!
When Noah’s mother Shelly was three months into her pregnancy, the doctors realized that Noah’s spinal cord didn’t develop properly. Noah had spina bifida, and hydrocephalus.
Noah had fluid building up in his head, which was damaging his brain.
The hydrocephalus had already destroyed 98% of his brain tissues. Only a medical miracle could help them now.
Shelly had been monitored closely because she was an older mom. By the end of her first trimester it was clear the baby had several problems.
The doctors even asked the parents to pick out a casket. Only a medical miracle could now save Noah.
Noah had spina bifida, that is, his spinal cord didn’t develop properly.
He also had hydrocephalus, a condition in which fluid built up in the brain. This damaged all his brain tissues, leaving him with virtually no brains.
You can see in the brain scan image on the left where only 2% of his brain is left.
However, due to some medical miracle, Noah started developing despite the odds.
In fact, his brains continued growing. His growth was slower than an average baby, but he soon started laughing and speaking!
“When the consultant told us [the parents], she was in tears — she had never heard of it before. They don’t know how or why, but Noah will be used as an example for junior doctors and for brain surgeons. We just cannot believe it — it’s a miracle, we are completely baffled.”
Noah is now a playful and healthy 4 year old! However, he still has challenges. He is paralyzed below the chest due to the spina bifida.
He faces a series of surgeries over the years to help his legs recover.
However, the parents are hopeful that with treatment and surgeries Noah will one day walk on his own. Considering the medical miracle, it all seems very likely.
Noah is almost at par with all other kids his age, in terms of brain development. Those scans compare Noah’s brain at birth and at the age of 3. Noah can count all the way to ten, he can talk, and he is even learning to write!
Noah now also stars in the BBC documentary ‘The Boy With No Brain.” After that, his parents wish for him to have an ordinary life with other school kids.
