3/13/18 - Children's Hospital Of Wisconsin
I stayed in the care of the American Family Children’s Hospital until 3/13/18. A day or so prior to leaving UW AFCH, my body began to retain fluid and swell. My body began to shut down. I was med-flighted to the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and the doctors thought they may need to place me back on ECMO. This was a big deal though, being that my condition was not stable and the procedure to place me on ECMO this second time would entail cutting into and placing cannulas thru my chest to my heart. I may not have survived that...so they gave me their best efforts and care with medications and drains. The doctors at the CHW saved my life; a third time.
