View Full Version : Constantly amazed

I have said many times that all of our kids are alive only because they are fighters. Alize continues to prove me right. He is currently septic with a blood culture positive for pseudomonas which means his PICC line and shunt are probably infected. An incision from his last shunt revision has opened slightly and CSF is literally dripping from it along with some green drainage. Despite all of this Alize is awake, listening to his IPOD and chewing his fist. Right now his pain is under control and we spent the evening cuddling in front of the TV. The kid is awesome. Karen

What a fighter! And YOU are an inspiration with your positive outlook.

He gets his fighting spirit from his ever loving mama!!!

Oh my goodness; I'm not sure if I'm more amazed that Alize's still here, or that he's here and still enjoying quality of life. You truly are an amazing family and have travelled this very difficult road with an amazing amount of grace.

When you feel this much love, well, you just do not want to leave. This is a testament to the love you have given him.

Hugs to you,

I never ceases to amaze me how much these little ones can cope with. Alize is obviously happy and relaxed with this family and that's the best way to be. What a wonderful, amazing little boy he is and he is so lucky to have you to love and care for him.:hug:

He IS a fighter. It's very touching actually, to imagine you cuddling together and savoring every moment. I hope the moments keep coming and coming.

Glad to hear that Alize can still enjoy his music and cuddling- nice that his pain is under control also.
