By the time they reached the hospital she was having complications in delivery. They transferred her to Zomba Central where they performed a Cesarean Section on her to deliver the baby. Grandma then took the baby to the kangaroo ward where they discovered that he was having trouble breathing. After 1 month in the hospital, they were sent home. Davis doesn’t speak, he communicates through sign language, he also did not walk until he was 7 years old. Davis’ mom would like to see him gain skills so that he can support himself.
