The Ottawa Citizen has a story about Stittsville’s Susan Brayshaw, who is recovering from flesh-eating disease:
A Stittsville mother recovering from flesh-eating disease wants nothing more than to carry her seven-week-old baby.
Susan Brayshaw, 38, ended up in the hospital with knee pain four days after she gave birth on March 22 to her son, Jackson, at home with the help of two midwives and a doula.
Doctors don’t believe the disease is linked in any way to the birth and wasn’t passed on to her baby.
“It’s hard because I can’t do the little things,” Brayshaw said Wednesday evening. “I can’t walk up and down the hall. I can’t go for a stroller walk with him.
“Everything a mother wants to do I can’t. He doesn’t know any difference, but it still hurts.”
