Intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH): Bleeding in the brain occurs in some premature babies. Those born before about 32 weeks of pregnancy are at highest risk. The bleeds usually occur in the first 3 days of life and generally are diagnosed with an ultrasound.

Most brain bleeds are mild and resolve themselves with no or few lasting problems. More severe bleeds can affect the substance of the brain or cause the fluid-filled structures (ventricles) in the brain to expand rapidly. These severe bleeds can cause pressure on the brain that can lead to brain damage (such as cerebral palsy and learning and behavioral problems). When fluid persists in the ventricles, neurosurgeons may insert a tube into the brain to drain the fluid and reduce the risk of brain damage
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED TO MY NIECE NO CHILD ABUSE !!!!

Thankful that your brother took the baby to the hospital. He obviously is a concerned and caring father.

If you write like you did in this post.. and you work or worked for law enforcement then you must have been an informant because you sound retarded.

Oh, and he HAD a career. The Clewiston Police will not take him back. Now please put the bottle of booze down before you post next time.

Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty. Apparently you know something that others don't about this man. Do you know him personally? Why is it that he "HAD" a career? I only ask because I wonder if you might be privy to information that others don't know of.

Nothing that I am willing to say here on Topix. This is a very small town and I don't need the trouble. But his career is for the most part over with the CPD

All these people the talk bad about the officer`s we know they hate cop`s.Be a good citizen & go to court & accuse him of what ever prove you have,but remember you have to have prove so if you don`t have any prove don`t talk """" & if you have anything to said don`t hide your name, only cower do that.
GOD bless all the police officer`s that risk they live for us every single day.
You can run from GOD but you cannot hide from him & he will make justice,don`t be afraid of man justice

Johnny is a hothead and I believe he did it. I hope all the cops who covered for him go to jail too. Clewiston cops are all bastards. Kudos to whoever turned him in, they should get an award. Bye the way, people should learn how to spell check.

So,
I see a new officer was hired. Sanchez (sp?) He worked at the prison in Moore Haven. Was a Sgt. then got busted down to a basic officer due to playing domino's with an inmate ON CAMERA while he was to be working. I have first hand knowledge about that one.
He was also put on hold from being hired at Clewiston PD for his remarks about the Wicca religion. Not sure how he got out of that but Moore Haven C.I. ran by Geo Group (until August) did write him up about that incident. As far as I know he spent his last months at that job being the kitchen officer. By far the worst post in the prison.
So yea.. CPD is just full of awesome cops.
