Étienne: Our Inspiration
Exactly one month after Etienne was born he was rushed to the hospital due to a stroke. It was a very scary time for all of us. Later he was diagnosed with Biliary Atresia, meaning he was born without a bile duct, which destroyed his liver. On Nov. 12th, 2008 he received a liver transplant. After than he had complications meaning a lot of trips to the hospital for years after.
Today, Étienne is experiencing bleeds due to his portal vain no longer functioning and not giving proper blood. He had a bypass surgery to fix the problem. The surgery was a complete success. He is slowly recovering. UPDATE (3/15): He's had another bleed. Cause unknown, but the doctors are on tope of it.
Because we've had several requests of how they could help financially, a family member set up this venmo account.
