For Alexis Wyatt, 31, of Brownstown Township, a good day is one when her third child, Alexander, 10 months, who is seriously ill, doesn’t have to go to the hospital.

Life for her and her daughters Athena, 5, and Alexa, 3, revolves around the needs of her young son, who struggles with challenging and largely undiagnosed health issues that require him to be fed 24 hours a day via a gastrostomy tube, have caused decreased muscle tone, caused seizure-like episodes and have led to developmental delays.

Wyatt said she had a normal pregnancy, and her son was born in a scheduled caesarean section at 39 weeks, and he was full-term and weighed 8 pounds, 4 ounces when he was born Nov. 16, 2016. However, when he came home and was two weeks old, he started projectile vomiting, which was so severe he had to be hospitalized.
