“I don't think anything can ever prepare you to hear the words your two-week-old would possibly need a liver transplant. You are attached to your phone. You put every cry, sneeze, and cough under a microscope and praying with all your might that he doesn't get a fever. Your mind is constantly on getting the call, but somehow life keeps going on around you.
Our son received his first liver transplant in the early morning of June 24, 2015. It's hard to describe the feeling of letting your child go down the hall and trust that he is going to come back, alive, smiling, and hopefully less yellow! You imagine this new life with this new liver, but at the same time you know that someone else is going through a tragic scenario in order for your child to have this opportunity.”
