On admission Spencer had severe cough. He was weak, needs to be fed patiently and delicately. He was diagnosed as soften bronchia and CHD in the hospital, then he was sent to have treatment. He has better mental state after taking heart repair surgery, he would smile when teased.

Spencer is an introvert, does not like strangers, sometimes likes being held by caretakers, could not sit or crawl, usually lying on his crib. He just rolls to move, or sitting on kids’ chair against quilt, likes sucking fingers and spit. Caretakers give him gloves or socks every day.
His mental development is delayed when compared with children of his age, could play toys with long arms, try to grasp toys hanging on his crib, but does not know to ask for being held, cry when hold him and put him down. He would look at you and smile when teased.
