So let me just start off by saying last night was the one year anniversary for Trevor's death. We held a balloon release and candle light vigil for my angel. We did not hold a fundraiser. It is rumored that some people were going to "crash" the vigil. I am glad that they didn't. This vigil had nothing to do with the court case or the guilty verdict, it was about Trevor. My sweet baby that died.
Now on to the next topic....misconceptions....it has come to my attention that some people need clarification.....On my blog I posted that Trevor had been injured on Monday...that is true....I didn't know it at the time. He was taken to the hospital for vomiting and misdiagnosed with a stomach bug. My mom watched him on Tuesday and he was getting better.
I took him back to Ms. Dobson on Wednesday. He was fine...back to normal. I dropped him off at 7:45, called twice to check on him. At 3:00 I got a call from her saying she was going to call 911.
It wasn't until we were at Children's that we learned that he had been injured. It wasn't until the Autopsy that we learned that he had been injured on Monday. You see...medical examiners have a way to test bruises and see when injuries occurred.
Now onto the next misconception....NO SBS doesn't take days for symptoms to appear. NOT only did Trevor die from SBS, he died from blunt force trauma meaning he was hit against something or with something repeatedly. So his injuries were immediate! The specialist from Johns Hopkins, Children's and the specialist the defense hired from AI Dupont also stated that Trevor's injuries occurred while in the care of Gail Dobson.
And....did my husband watch Trevor Sunday? YES. Did he hurt him? NO. You see the Justice for Trevor pictures on the back of cars? That picture was taken by me that night!
Also....My husband and I took polygraph tests and passed....Ms. Dobson was offered one and refused.
So to the people that continue to support Ms. Dobson, go ahead and have your stupid fundraiser. A million dollar attorney can't disprove the medical evidence in this case.
Now stop spreading rumors about my husband and I and let us grieve the loss of our son!
Also it's important to note that when googleing for info on SBS, many defense attorneys websites pop up with untrue information. For the real facts about SBS, consult ANY neurologist, general doctor, neurosurgeon, etc in your area. Millions of doctors agree on the proven scientific facts about SBS.
