My Sick Kids Story:
I was 18 months old when Sick Kids Hospital saved my life. It was discovered that I had a double ureter connection from my left kidney to my bladder. Because there were two, the connection point was faulty and I had a reflux of urine going back into my kidney. I was extremely sick and septic. After my surgery, my parents and grandparents took turns staying by my side. They slept on a cot beside my hospital crib.
My mom tells stories that I was a very good patient. She doesn't remember one cry or whine. I apparently was very curious about all the other children in my ward. There was one boy with spina bifida and his parents made a sled on wheels to pull him around. I also got lots of cuddles so I was a happy patient.
My dad loves to tell the story that the Maple Leafs came to visit one day and when one player entered my room I put my fists up and started swinging. Clearly I knew hockey was all about fighting.
