Help a boy with half a brain
Here we go again. Michael "Danger" Wilton for the forth time in 7 years is in the fight for his life. I admit I lost my temper and posted angry response to a wealthy football star asking the public for money for making negative comments to a people and justifying it as religion. Yes the surgery my boy is having is free. The time off work, medicine, extra therapy, assistance for the rest of his life will not be. So if you feel like putting you money elsewhere yes our family would love your support. For proof of my wonderful boy and his life so far check out www.lovingdanger.org+ Read More
Quick update. Mikey's surgery was cancelled at the last minute. Mum and Dad and family brutally upset but we are rolling with it. Hoping for a new date soon. Meanwhile Mikey continues to decline his behavior gets worse as he struggles to deal with heavy meds and poor focus. Its hard to watch your child fall apart Right before your eyes. With limited funds left we are greatfull that we live in a county that affords us to have an opportunity to get the help where otherwise we could not have. My anger still remains however that people have still chosen this same forum to request funds in a similar fashion plus chosen to use language like "the fight of my life" in such a callas way. Every morning when I wake and see my boy is still alive those words resonate with me and I am saddened. Today's picture is of Micky's big sister such a beautiful girl. She gets bullied because her twin brother and sister are "retards" not my words. She loves them to peaces but first a 12 year old kids are cruel. So for Mikey, Jasmine and Katrina please share.
We have a date and no time to waste. Mikey goes under the knife tomorrow at 10:00 am. Please spare a thought for our boy as he recovers from neurosurgery tomorrow afternoon. Thank you all for your support to date and as always please share,
So we now have a date for Mikey D's next surgery. Mr Wilton it's going to be between 2 weeks and 2 months. Its the public system so you get what you can get. We are grateful do not get me wrong however remembering the reason why I started this page it is something that I am now reminded of. We have spent all our savings, sold our stuff and now are reliant on the public system and the kindness of strangers to help us help our boy. The last 7 years has truly taught me what the meaning of gratitude really is. It's not material, neither is it ideology or righteousness. For these things are only accessible to the people who have an option or choice. That's right graduate can only be understood by people that rely on others (government, friends or strangers) generosity of spirit. Now I am far from being religious. I detest most religions because someone somewhere will usually use them as a tool to control. That does not however exclude me from understanding the universal force of grace. So for some background on today's picture. I have chosen not to go with the graphic premi child pic although I have many rather a more recent one. Michael has a twin sister. Born 1.2Kg's (hand smaller than my fingernail) a fighter none the less. Pneumonia at 3 months plus again more hospital visits than you can imagine. Emergency open heart surgery at 16 months to fix not one but two holes in her heart. Dr's comments were that before 16 months the heart was literally to small for them to detect the holes. Walks out of hospital 3 days post surgery AMAZING. Hearing and learning disabilities but the most stubborn fighter I have ever met (apart from her Mother). Last week we finally received a diagnosis for a genetic disorder and Global development delay allowing her to now attend the same special school her brother attends. No longer will she be related to the back of the class in a main stream school and left to rot without the right early intervention. She will get the care and attention she requires to be able to be the best little fighter she can be. If my wife and I had the money we could have achieved this goal years ago privately. However as we graciously depend on others we are still so happy we have the opportunity now. You have all done so much to help all I ask is that you share our story, You have now met both Mikey and Jasmine and I hope that you can feel a sense of well being that you have done something good to total strangers that both understand and appreciate your choice to show grace at a time when there was so much negativity being cast about. As always please share.
Picture I took of my boy tonight 5minutes after we got home. You see after last week's hospital visit and 2 night stay both mum and dad still need to work. We have no choice but to send him to Holliday care. I cut work early as my work cares to pick him up. Naturally he was exhausted. Its a daily struggle when you look into those innocent eyes and just wish you could do more. Seizures continued until we can see his neurologist again who is on leave to try and get a date for surgery. Its not headline news but it's real and raw. This poor kid is no different to the many children that neither asked for this or deserve this. To our supporters thank you again and as always. Please share if you can.
