Wistful Wednesday

Team Mikey

For writers, inspiration can come from anywhere and for me, that inspiration has come from the situation involving my cousin and her fourteen year old son. Two weeks ago, Mikey was a vibrant, likable kid who has the world at his feet and a world of possibilities laid out before him, ripe for the taking. Today, he's in Children's Hospital in Boston, fighting for his life after suffering from cardiac arrest. This piece from our local news portrays his story eloquently and it is really worth the time to read and to watch the video that accompanies it. Here's another great article from my cousin's local paper.

What inspires me about this story isn't just my personal involvement in it, but the fact that my cousin's condition is a mystery to the doctors, who still haven't figured out what is going on with him. More than that, it is the support system that has rallied around my cousin and her family, not just Mikey, the people who are keeping her and her husband and other children motivated and positive in this trying time. They call themselves Team Mikey and they even have a Facebook page where they share encouraging words for their friend and his family. For them, I can only say thank you for taking such good care of my family.

What are the stories that inspire you?

As a critical care pediatric nurse I can tell you that I understand somewhat the horror your family is going through. It is so frustrating to not know why in cases like this. I will keep Mikey on our prayer list. Thank you for shraring this. It is good to see a community come together to encourage and support your family.
