Letter: Kelsea Freeman keeps on going
8/9/2012 1:01:00 PM
Kelsea has to have surgery every four weeks for the next six months on her esophagus. The blood will not go through her diseased liver fast enough, so it creates varicose veins in her throat. When one of those veins bursts, she goes for a shunt to re-route more blood. When the shunt fails, they will do the transplant. I just have to watch my kid deteriorate in front of me. That stinks! She just spent 10 days in the hospital for a lung infection. She got out on July 3 just to turn around and have surgery on the 12th. On the 15th she left for cheer camp, but still not fully recovered. She just keeps going. I don’t know how she does it.
Romano is in Missouri, trying to raise funds along the route. He is very discouraged. Everyone should meet him out on the route, for support. He will be stopping by Fort Bragg, where my son is. That would be cool if they could do a fund-raiser of some kind. Our medical insurance just started over on July 1, and we already hit our $5,000 deductible. In 17 days, so boom, another $5,000 gone. She is an expensive kid, but well worth it.
Any and all help is very appreciated: www.liverforkelsea.com.
