I thank you all again and most of all I thank the family who gave my grandson the gift of life. Please keep the donor family in your prayers. And if you are not an organ donor please become one, there is no greater gift.
Here is a summary of what this strong little trooper has endured so much the first 2 years of his life.
Daniel was born June 22, 2010. Shortly after we found out some very scarey and heart breaking news. He was born with hirschsprung, and only one kidney. Hirschsprung is a very rare disease, No ganglion nerves developed in the large or small intestine, meaning the instestines did not work. He had many surgeries starting at about 7 days old. The following May he was diagnoised with Hepstoblastoma, a rare liver cancer. Yep you guessed it, this grandmothers world was not only turned upside down but also sideways. He was sent to Omaha, Nebraska for a transplant. To be honest, this was a situation that was much larger than I could wrap my mind around. But it was not larger than the awesome God we serve or this loving community could. I can not put into words how much I thank each and every one who worked, contributed and prayed for Daniel as he and his family faced a very unknown future. And I must tell you your prayers not only were answered for Daniel but also for this grandmother who watched my only child watch his only child fight for his little life. This is proof our God hears our prayers and holds us in his loving arms. Then the night came that I recieved a call that was more emotional than I can explaine. I answered the phone and I heard “Mom we got the call, Daniel is having a transplant in the morning. OK talk about emotional, I coud not get my breath, I did not know if I should cry, jump up and down, but then a feeling of bitter sweet came over me. Thats the only way I can explain it. So the next day, our BIG D got the gift of life on June 3, 2011. He recieved a Liver, Pancreas, and small intestines.
On June 6, 2012 Daniel was at Omaha again for his 1 year check up. He is doing GREAT as far as his transplant goes. Thank you to everyone from around the nation who prayed, God heard everyone and Daniel is living proof, God is still in the miracle working business. Now we do have another hurdle to jump but through prayer I have no doubt God will again show us what he will do for Daniel. He goes to the Neurologist in July for a chronic facial pain disorder known as Triginemal Neuralgia. Please keep those prayers going and I Thank God in advance for his healing hands taking Daniels pain away.
