He's precious.




What happened, if I'm not being too nosy?

Thanks. I have a hard time talking about him, and looking at his pictures from before the accident really make me feel like I did him wrong.

That's terrible! I'm glad it wasn't worse though.

My daughter has been through surgeries and other things as well. Not for the same reason obviously. But I can definitely sympathize and I nearly break down when I go through the photos from then to now. I also never take life for granted and I don't sweat the small stuff either. Your son has come a long way you should be proud.

It should've been worse. The first responders thought he was dead when they found him. The hospital wouldn't let us see him for several hours because they were certain he wasn't going to make it. Once he made it to Birmingham the doctors there didn't think he'd pull throw his trauma surgery. He is a fighter let me tell you.

Don't feel like that. You do the best for him. It was a horrible accident.

I realize that, and getting down on myself isn't going to help him obviously. I guess I've kept it inside for so long, so just needed to share his story a little. I've honestly never shared the pics of him before the accident that I can remember. They're on my facebook, buried because it's just hard for me to look at.

He's still a gorgeous little boy, and his bright spirit shows through in every single one of those pictures. <3 Sorry for what you and your family have been through and continue to go through.

He is absolutely precious. My heart hurts, and tears are welling in my eyes just looking at these pictures. To make it through such trauma, he is definitely one strong little guy.



Birmingham, AL? Was he at UAB?

Poor, poor baby.. No-one should have to endure this kind of pain. What an inspiration, though.. he must have fought so hard for his life. Your son is a real tough cookie! And mama, don't blame yourself.. It was an accident. A terrible one, but still an accident.
