Los Lunas resident Kelly Beraun almost lost her son Jaiden three times. The first time was just after he and his twin, Benjamin, were born in May 2010 at 25 weeks. The first time he cried, he popped a hole in his lung and doctors thought he wouldn’t survive. He pulled through.
A week later, Jaiden perforated his intestine and was rushed into emergency surgery for necrotizing enterocolitis, a common gastrointestinal problem among premature babies that can destroy the intestines.
