Jennifer Snowden was finally able to bring her baby son, James Ascher (who will be referred to as Ascher), home — after he was diagnosed with a brain encephalocele and placed in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) after his birth on Sep. 12.
“We are now home after a tumultuous first few days. He is a strong little man,” the Southern Charm star wrote on Instagram.
Jennifer and her longtime boyfriend, James Lee, welcomed the child via C-section last week and he needed surgery almost immediately after. Before his birth she asked loved ones to once again pray for their baby and his improving condition, which is a rare birth defect of the neural tube.
“Please say a prayer for him that his encephalocele on his brain has continued to be miraculously healed in the womb, which was evidenced by his second fetal MRI on July 28,” she said. “I believe with all of my heart that your prayers have helped turned this little boy's fate around. And for that, I am forever in your debt.”
It’s a miracle!
