Now on to my Miracle Story.....
I have been living at the Ronald McDonald House in Greater Cincinnati Ohio since December 26th, because my son Ethan who is 2 has been having breathing complications and I have been fighting each day to help my son get the care that he deserves. He is a 1 year Post Liver Transplant patient. His 1 year mark was February 18th. That is why I wanted to do this Miracle Blog Hop to celebrate his life and celebrate his Hero and Angel. My son was diagnosed with a rare liver disease called Biliary Atresia since at the age of two months old. My son was not born with no bile ducts and so therefore he had a kasi done which is a 4 hr surgery reconstructing his bile ducts and replacing them with artificial stints. My son needed a liver fast because he was not doing so good at the age 8 months and received his liver at the age of 15 months. My son had received a liver from a 4 year old little boy who had accidentally shot himself, because his father who was a sheriff worked long hours and did not lock his gun cabinet.His son had got into it and was playing with his twin brother and he accidentally pulled the trigger. I got the call on February 17th 2:15 pm from his liver transplant coordinater. I cried with tears of joy and sadness.Reality hit hard and I was thinking to myself, how can I actually be happy when a Mother and Father just lost there son and I am gaining my son back. I was in shock.... I felt guilty that I was the lucky one who's son was being saved,and there son could not be saved.
We spent two more months here at the Ronald McDonald House and then went home in May 2011. I had waited 9months 13hrs and 30 Min's for a liver. I am so ever so great full for my son's HERO and Angel. I can not wait till I can meet this family and actually give them tears of happiness and tell them that there son will always live on...through my son. What We have been through is a Miracle... I have seen God work miraculous on my son and still works on him still to this day.
I almost lost my son three times just during this recent admission and God has shown me patients and to have a voice for my son! My son is a Miracle and so is his donor. I have made this flower arrangement and vase for my son to remember his donor and date!
Green is the Liver Organ color and so I made the Daisy's out of the cricut quilling tool and I also made the Ribbon and date from vinyl. This is my very first time using vinyl.
Now please do me a favor think about Organ Donation! Do you know how many lives you can save! Think about it and the next time you get your ID card or Donate Blood and they ask you if your a donor..just think about it. Think about my Ethan's story and millions like his...
