Twenty-six-year-old Zain Nadella, son of Microsoft Corp Chief Executive Officer Satya Nadella passed away on Monday morning. Zain was born with cerebral palsys.

Nadella, in his blog in October 2017, had written, “One night, during the thirty-sixth week of her pregnancy, Anu noticed that the baby was not moving as much as she was accustomed to. So we went to the emergency room of a local hospital in Bellevue. We thought it would be just a routine checkup, little more than new parent anxiety.”

He further wrote, “In fact, I distinctly remember feeling annoyed by the wait times we experienced in the emergency room. But upon examination, the doctors were alarmed enough to order an emergency cesarean section. Zain was born at 11:29 p.m. on August 13, 1996, all of three pounds. He did not cry.”

He added, “Zain was transported from the hospital in Bellevue across Lake Washington to Seattle Childrens Hospital with its state-of-the-art Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Anu began her recovery from the difficult birth. I spent the night with her in the hospital and immediately went to see Zain the next morning. Little did I know then how profoundly our lives would change. Over the course of the next couple of years we learned more about the damage caused by in utero asphyxiation, and how Zain would require a wheelchair and be reliant on us because of severe cerebral palsy. I was devastated. But mostly I was sad for how things turned out for me and Anu.”

?Zain will be remembered for his eclectic taste in music, his bright sunny smile and the immense joy he brought to his family and all those who loved him, Jeff Sperring, CEO of Childrens Hospital, wrote in a message to his Board, which was shared with Microsoft executives.
