My name is Lisa and I am asking for donations to help my daughter celebrate receiving her college degree. I know you may think big deal, right? If you knew my daughter, you would know what I mean. One evening when my daughter was 15 yrs old we we're sitting around, and she started feeling sick. We did the Tylenol and soup nothing helped. I said "if you still feel crappy in the morning we'll go to the ER"
We ended up going because I didn't want her to miss school. We get to the ER and when it's her time at triage she starts getting hot and puking quite a bit. When she finally sees the doctor, he runs some test gets the results and says she needs to go to the pediatric hospital in Charlotte I said ok. She kept getting hotter and sicker, I'm thinking food poisoning or something the doctor returns and says we would like to transport her in an ambulance just in case. Still clueless I say to her "wow, you’re going to get to ride in an ambulance baby!" I go out to collect myself while they get her ready, I'm getting a little scared but I’m still cool. I remember the doctor walking up to me and saying he needed to speak with me. We went into a room and said " we have decided to transport her by helicopter because her body is shutting down. We will need to put her in a mild coma for transport until she arrives. Even now I still remember kissing her before they put her to sleep for the trip, I remember the pilots saying we will be there in 8 minutes and eight seconds. It took me 45 minutes to drive to the hospital. I got there and frantically ran around looking for my child. They took me to her, and I remember my conversation with doctor "I'm her mother I'm here now you can wake her up!" His reply to was "if we wake her up now, she will die." for 7 long agonizing days I endured that answer. Even now to think of it makes me ......... Fast forward she has endured countless hospital stays for months on end sometimes including Thanksgiving til Christmas. She has had DVT's yes plural months of having intravenous meals because nothing could be in her stomach having to be home schooled and schooled in the hospital because of her extensive stays now she lives with because of her decease she no longer has a gall bladder and is diabetic. My daughter has chronic pancreatitis. I member receiving a call and her saying "mama I can't breathe I said call 911 and I will meet you there at the hospital I am always on alert Pancreatitis is such a vicious decease. Her doctors asked for permission to put her in medical books because she was so young, and it is so severe. At times she would say "mama can you sleep with me? I would say that hospital bed is not big enough for both of us. She said when you sleep with me, I feel like nothing can hurt me. I said move over babes". She never gave up; she never quits trying. She tries so hard to be ordinary and I tell her she is extraordinary She works at a family services agency and she tells me about clients that chose not so good paths that are her age and thanks God still for her journey. I have always made it happen for my daughter she is the very air that breath but now my multiple sclerosis has really slowed me down in many ways physically and mentally. My monthly disability check hasn't allowed me to get an airline ticket yet, but I remain faithful. I created a MS bath salt for my pain, and I want to sell it on eBay to earn money but at times especially when it rains my leg spasms shut me down. I would like for people to help me help her celebrate something me nor her father ever accomplished, a college degree she is my champion please come and help us celebrate the University of Phoenix Graduation at the Orleans Arena at 10:00 am in Las Vegas!! This would mean the world to me and I will be happy to send each person some of my MS Magic Bath Soak. Please join us there.
Peace & Blessings
