New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 20, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas Heraid-Zeitung g Sunday, April 20, 1997 □ 3ABaby From Page 1 The shaking breaks fragile blood vessels that connect the skull to the brain and causes blood to fill the inside of the skull and often the retinal area. The syndrome can also cause lethargy, vomiting and irritability while in more severe cases coma, retina] bleeding and even death. The syndrome affected an estimated 4,000 in 1995 and caused 1,000 deaths nationwide, including an estimated six in the San Antonio area. While most parents and babysitters would never see themselves inflicting such severe conditions as death, frustrating situations can lead to this type of child abuse. Ignorance, Quoyerers said, is her biggest battle. “It never entered our minds to tell our nanny about (Shaken Baby Syndrome),” said Quoyerers, who retired to New Braunfels two years ago after living in Houston. “The main reason I got involved is so no other family goes through the suffering we did. In the beginning I think I was hesitant. I thought that people would think we were doing it to just alleviate our own pain.” Today, however, the situation is different. A member of the steering committee for Any Baby Can, Inc., of San Antonio, a child-abuse advocacy group, Quoyerers works out of an office in her home on Trail View. She taught herself to use desktop publishing software and began her campaign by writing 450 letters to almost every person she knew. She spends about 15 hours a week, giving lectures at area schools, making bumper stickers and HOW TO SAFELY HANDLE PARENTAL STRESS ■ The No. 1 reason a Daby is shaken is because of inconsolable crying. ■ lf you have met a baby’s basic needs and have done all you can to try to calm the crying baby, it is OK to leave the baby in a crib or other safe place and go to another part of the house for a while, checking on the baby every 10 to 15 minutes. ■ Get help before frustrations rise to a dangerous level: Stop, Sit Down and then Calm Down.

(children) especially infants. Any time they’re around a parent who’s shaking a baby, they need to intervene. People need to know that this is a serious problem.” Flume said that shaken baby syndrome is not as prevalent a child abuse problem as sexual abuse in the area. Quoyerers said she hopes her efforts will eradicated one of the more subtle aspects of child abuse although the road is often uphill. “People don’t want to discuss it,” she said. “Maybe it’s too preachy. Maybe we as a nation don’t want to look im the closet and see the skeletons.” bookmarks and visiting various groups to tell them how to prevent what she and her grandson experienced. Albeit painful, her personal story makes her an effective advocate, she said. Dr. Terry Pick, an emergency room physician at McKenna Memorial Hospital, said he has witnessed a case where a 3-month-old died from the trauma of his father shaking him out of frustration. Pick was working as chief of the emergency room at an Aberdeen, Md. hospital 20 years ago when the child suffered severe bleeding in his head that caused a fatal stroke two months later. “(The parents) were pretty upset and didn’t seem to really comprehend what had happened to their baby,” he said. The father was eventually convicted and jailed for the incident, Pick said. In the two cases he’s observed, Pick said the parents began the shaking out of frustration that the baby was crying uncontrollably. “If you have your own children, you can see how people can get to will be closing forever! 172 W.

Locally, doctors and local leaders said cases of the syndrome have been rare in Comal County. In recent years only one relatively minor case emerged in 1994 in which a 6-month-old was shaken, said Sherry Flume, a supervisor with the Texas Department of Protective and Regulatory Services in New Braunfels. The boyfriend of the mother allegedly shook the infant who was taken into the custody of the state after experiencing convulsions, Flume said. The baby eventually was returned to the mother and was fortunate not to retain any permanent symptoms, Flume said. “Education is the key,” she said. “People need to be aware of shaking LOOK FOR OUR SPECIAL INTERNET COUPON AT: www.hobbylobby.com LESTER W.
