Hospital would like to have him to continue to try, but funding....but i understand he is a happy little boy, bright. I know the mother is torn, but she cherishs the good days, i think, thats what helps her threw the down days.
agreed, there are days when i count my blessings. i went in for a consultation last week and saw a little boy my sons age, with a lymphatic malformation down the entire right side of his body. i can't even begin to imagine what this child's parents must be going through. for me, 90% of the days are good. thank you for responding
