My guardian angel JON

UPriscilo S.Landig IV”Jon Jon” was born at Queen of Angels Med.Ctr. LA,CA.  @216 PM Tuesday the 16th day of July 1985 4lbs 12oz.The same day he was baptized (I cried so much why are they doing this and they gave him 24hrs to live) a team of doctors and nurses (about 15 of them) came and started reviving him and then decided to transfer Jon to White Memorial Med Ctr coz they needed the NICU due to heart problems ,Jon survived the 24hrs,after a week the team from CHLA came and transferred him  there due to kidney disease it was so heart breaking And was there for almost 6weeks , he became so sick until one day his creatinine level became 8 so high for a baby (normal values 0.7-1.3..).His dad and I were trained for 40hrs to perform peritoneal dialysis PD at home we did that procedure 10hrs every night that lasted for 3 yrs until Jon started getting infections ,so they decided to start Hemodialysis at CHLA three X per week M W F , he had several seizures as well.

One Saturday May 20,1988 we were having lunch got a call from CHLA  that they have a kidney for Jon and we rushed him it was almost 1PM when we got there.The kidney transplant started at 6PM and lasted till 10 

Pm when he came out from surgery he looked at me and I saw for the first time that he doesn’t look pale anymore while in ICU the very first thing he asked to eat was ice cream his nurses ran and got it for him he chose vanilla flavor after not tasting any food for over 3yrs that kidney lasted for 23 yrs he became diabetic also due to S/E of his meds.
