A Family, a story of “Organ Donation on both sides of the fence”  February 15, 2013 – 12:55 am
the aorta to mix with

Our story begins on March 24, 2002 when our second born son, I’ll call him "Wisdom" who was a 14 year old boy, Captain of his youth hockey team, very active & had no known childhood illnesses.  On that day in March of 2002, Wisdom became ill with what we thought was an upper respiratory infection and was seen by our family Dr. and put on a 5 day antibiotic.  By the third day, our son was not getting any relief from the deep cough he had developed and was very weak and listless.  I called his Dr. to have him seen again.  A mother’s instinct is strong and I heard him in our bathroom coughing uncontrollably and moaning in a way I had never heard come from him before. After seeing the Dr., she advised us that Wisdom be sent to the Hospital for possible "dehydration", and to get some IV fluids to remedy his symptoms. Wisdom had no strength, he barely had the strength to walk, and get into the car.  When we got to the emergency room, our son was admitted to the Pediatric Unit to be assessed.  After over 3 hours of IV fluids and nebulizer treatments, our son was not getting any better.  He complained of severe abdominal pain, and was complaining of nausea, and a rapid heart rate. The Dr. ordered a portable X-ray of our son’s chest.  After the X-ray was taken, there was a quiet stillness that filled the pediatric unit that I became acutely aware of.  I overheard a nurse outside of his room say two words ~ "Enlarged Heart".  I called the nurse to the room, and she stated that the X-ray did show a possible enlarged heart, but that they wanted to get a clearer picture of it in the X-Ray Department.  My husband arrived by then, and lifted our son’s weak and limp like body to the X-ray table, kissing him and encouraging him to do as the doctors needed him to do.

Second part of definition:
"Complicated Term usually begins with subordinating conjunctions." Since when did explaining One complicated term involve throwing in more complicated terms. I'll tell you, teachers should teach students, Not write sentences that they already understand. Assume that the kids Don't know the terminology, don't you think that's a better way to teach us? Maybe...nd organizational skills... This might explain lots about my problem here. But that aside, I Try Hard. I do try hard! All I ask is they teach us well - Not write crap from the text book onto the chalk board, while not responding to our questions about the content, they really look baffled when we ask them questions. Like they think we're stupid - NO! we are very perceptive about what's going on.
