MEET RIVER

On November 26th, 2017, our son River had a near-drowning accident in the bathtub, his heart stopped and he was reanimated at the hospital. His MRI taken 3 days after the accident showed significant brain injury and the doctors painted a very dark picture for us, told us we should let him go and that he would never wake up or open his eyes again.

We did not listen to the doctors, we chose to believe in River, pray, and get on a therapy journey. After a month and a half, he began opening his eyes slightly and moving his foot a little bit. We are almost 8 months after the accident now and thanks to the help of friends and family have able to get River started on some therapies like hyperbaric oxygen and stem cells.

We are now at a point where River is out of the acute phase and does not have to be in the hospital all the time. He now opens his eyes fully when awake, moves his limbs more than before, and is even beginning to have some core strength so I can help his sit or stand. There is still a long way to go as he has a tracheostomy and gtube and needs extensive care but we are hopeful that the therapies and stimulation recommended by the parents in the support group for Anoxic Brain Injury will help us get River to play as a little boy again.

All of your prayers, songs, positive thoughts, and financial support are tremendously appreciated. Thank you for helping us bring River back to life <3 Melissa and Stephan
