A couple from Apple Valley California are praying their baby boy survives after they asked doctors to save him when he was born on Tuesday, four months early, weighing only 14 ounces.
Little Decklen was born at 22-weeks after mom, Carrie Maize, suffered an umbilical cord prolapse and both she and dad, James Maize, decided to go through with an emergency C-section.
The couple rushed to St. Mary Medical Center in Apple Valley and are desperate to give their son every chance at life because their daughter Serenity died last year after also being born at 22-weeks.
“It was a choice between me and my wife if we wanted to try to save him or not,” James said to CBS 2. “We decided that we wanted to try to save him, so they rushed her back for a C-section.”
The parents are hoping and praying for their little boy that he is given a second chance at life and will pull through.
