It went very well the first twenty weeks. When we went in to do the gender reveal ultrasound, I could tell something was wrong, and I’m like, “What do you see?” and he’s like, “Well,” he goes, “it’s not good.” They said that there was no chance he was going to live. It was a tough pill to swallow. In my wildest dreams, I never thought that I would be in this kind of situation to make such drastic decisions. We were never really given hope, so we had actually decided to end the pregnancy. We got to the point of the night before the procedure to end it, and I wouldn’t do it, I just had it set in my head that he wasn’t going to turn out the way they thought he was. They first kind of described what to expect when he came out was, he won’t talk, he won’t move, he won’t know when he’s hungry, he’ll just be a shell. But, he came, and he came out kicking and screaming, and we kind of just looked at each other like, they told us he wasn’t even going to breathe. They set us up with pallative care, We had all this information about funerals, He was never looked at as a baby that’s going to survive. We took him home and he kept thriving. He was moving and he cried when he was hungry I couldn’t make him out any different from my first son. He was just a normal baby with something on the top of his head. When we met with the neurosurgeon in Columbus, he had made it sound like it was just going to be a simple procedure. He seemed super confident, he was like, “What we’re going to end up doing is just cutting that off, kind of reshaping the top. It’s just damaged tissue. There’s no way it could be functioning.” But, from the beginning, we didn’t understand how he wasn’t using the brain. We always felt, that maybe he was using what was left up in there. We decided to get a second opinion in Cleveland. The doctor we’d seen there, she was not entirely sure that he was going to survive the surgery. We were already looking at information on where, you know, kids that have this go to and we found Boston. So when she said that she had people in Boston that she knew, we were like, “Oh please. Just send us there.” Dr. Meara was the first person that we actually got to talk to, that we felt comfortable, and knowing that he knew exactly what he was doing. Very relaxed, very calm, explained everything. And for him to say, “Yes, there is a good possibility he’s using the brain.” We left there feeling very, very comfortable. We’ve been through so much from the beginning, being told, “he’s not going to make it,” and him always proving everybody wrong. I think we’re finally at this place now, at Boston Children’s, where the people that he is being taken care of by is actually fighting just as hard as he’s going to fight, and that was the best thing, that I think we’ve had happen so far in this journey with him.
