I'm so very sorry for your loss!
My next door neighbor's baby had this issue at term (wonder if that makes the difference) and here in the U.S. they did an immediate surgery on him to put the organs back through the whole in his abdominal wall and get them away from his heart and lungs. It was touch and go for awhile and he was in the NICU for many, many weeks after.
Did they offer corrective surgery to you? Was 33 weeks too immature to withstand the surgery perhaps?
I'm so sorry again. These are the things no one can either predict or have done anything to avoid happening.
You were so strong and brave! I applaud you!
I do hope you have strength to go on making more babies and having a family. Time will help you the most now. Thanks for sharing your beautiful story!
