Liam's Medical Journey

Liam was born on October 21, 2011 a seemingly healthy baby. His bright eyes and unruly hair was enough to make your heart stop. He was our little blessings from God and we couldn't be any more thrilled. As Liam grew, we started to realize he wasn't hitting the milestones that were laid out in the parenting books. We shrugged off our concerns by simply stating that all children do things in their own timing. Liam was a happy baby during the day, yet it was at night, that we truly were concerned. Liam would scream inconsolable for hours at end. Doctors would say he could potentially be a colic baby. They prescribed different formulas, colic medicines and soothing remedies that could potentially soothe Liam. To our dismay nothing worked. My husband and I could sense there was an underlying cause.

It was when Liam turned 6 months old that we became extremely acquainted with the hospital. From our first stay at the hospital, like any concerned parents we prayed we would never have to bring him back again. Unfortunately, our hospital visits became extremely frequent. Our visits became even more unnerving as we began to spend nights in PICU, for causes even the physicians didn't have an answer to. Each time Liam was brought in, for what we believed were easy and curable causes like fever, doctors would run an endless amounts of test, that never ended with any results!  During one visit they noted that Liam was small for his age. Both my husband and I were seemingly small babies, so we saw nothing out of the ordinary. Tests and measurements indicated Liam was indefinitely below the growth chart In all aspects.
That one small finding soon unraveled many other causes to take note of. Only six months old, medical professions discovered Liam had Wolff Parkinson White or WPW for short. This rare heart defect is an electrical abnormality usually associated with a fast heart rate originating above the ventricles, which is one cause for him unable to gain weight. At two years old, Liam underwent surgery to have a g- tube inserted. To fast forward, more than 100 hundred hospital stays and visits with the most elite and prominent speciality physicians, none have found a diagnosis for our sweet Liam.

Liam is now 3. He still has no diagnosis. He does not have the ability to vocalize. He is completely dependent upon myself and my husband. Liam has not been able to sit up on his own, has never crawled or walked. Since liam was six months old, we have been blessed to have him work with many different therapist to improve his tone and learn new skills.Currently Liam attends Pre-school programs for children with disabilities (PPCD). My husband and I strive to make a perfect life for Liam despite any outlook. This fundraiser will not only help relieve a heavy financial burden, it will as well allow us to purchase necessary equipment to always ensure Liam is included. We are faithful that God will provide.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your generous donations.
