Hi, my name is Austan Browning and my life is a story I want you all to hear.
My first few days on this earth seemed to be terrific , and nothing could be better.
I had my dad, mom, brother and sister all there with me. I could not wait to see what itwould be like living with this family. All we were waiting on was the release papers for me to go home.
That night things took a change for the worse for me. I was getting hot and real sweaty, my skin was changing color, and I began to feel really bad. A nurse had came in that night to check on me and noticed this. She took me from my mothers arms while she was sleeping. I had the feeling I would never see these people ever again. I was so afraid.
The next thing I know is this lady started poking me with these real sharp objects.
I could feel the weight leaving my body. I was shrinking for some reason. I was 8 pounds, now I am 7, then 6. What was going on with me. All I knew is I wanted to see the woman they kept calling mommy, and the weird looking dude they had called daddy.
As I tried to open my eyes to see what was happening to me this weird looking thing with all kinds of lights was pulling up. The lady that was poking me told these two guys I had to go to a bigger place, I needed help bad. Then the lady stuck me again and feed this tube into me.
Once I got to the new place, I really wanted to see mommy and daddy, but I could no longer open my eyes. All I could do was hear. And suddenly I heard the sweetest voices in my life. It was her and him, mommy and daddy, but they were crying and praying over me, saying, “please help him God.” What was wrong , I could not tell but I knew I was in for a long ride with this.
They had stuck all kinds of gadgets on me, one to feed me, one to listen to me and one to measure oxygen. Then all of a sudden I had these real bad shakes, what was happening to me. All I could hear was mommy saying some one please help him in terror. This happened 14 times that night. I wish I could have saw what was going on.
I heard dad and mom talking to the doctor later on that day and heard the doctor say something about strep b and spinal meningitis. All I could hear was that I was probably going to die. I only had a 10 percent chance in living. But a lot of shots, and a lot of love later I started to get better. Three months of darkness, and finally I opened my eyes again and seen mommy and daddy again. They never left my side. And I was so happy to see them.
Now I am almost a year old and things still don't feel right, but I have the two most loving parents I know. I have to go to the doctors a lot and one doctor told me I had cerebral palsy and there might be chance I will never walk.. But I am going to fight hard, so I can play with my brother and sister.
I am now three and still cant walk but I enjoy life and am now in school. I learned to get around and play, but my little butt takes a beating because I scoot everywhere.
I am still fighting this problem, just yesterday I had twelve botox shots injected into my legs, I will let you know if it helps.
Well this is a little of my, life but I hope it lets you know never to give up on life.
I only had a 10 percent chance and I made it.
