Charity Walk for our Baby Luc
My wife and I will be participating in this years March of Dimes walk for our son Luc. I have posted Luc's story here before but here is a refresher in case you missed it.
My wife was diagnosed with Placenta Previa about 20 weeks into her pregnancy. We were told that this sometimes occurs but the placenta sometimes moves and a normal birth can occur. This wasn't the case for my wife. 35 weeks into her pregnancy, she needed to be rushed to the hospital with severe bleeding. Within less than two hours from us arriving, my son was being born via c-section. We knew something was wrong when we could hear him making strange (not crying) noises for the first 15 minutes. They quickly rushed him into the NICU where he remained for 39 long days. It was a painful ordeal for both of us seeing him with breathing masks, ventilators, feeding tubes going in, a catheter, IV's...you name it. I think that kid had more needles pricked in him than I have in my 33 years of life.
We had a wonderful staff at Miller's Children's Hospital in Long Beach that comforted us then entire way. We made many friends, but sadly...I never want to see them again unless it's outside of the hospital.
Luc is now thriving and is 24" and 14lbs. He constantly has a smile on his face and loves to play. It's amazing watching how quickly they develop. He's truly the greatest thing that has ever happened to my wife and I.
If you are interested in donating to Luc's "team," I have provided the link. We will be wearing all our Kings gear as we make our walk through Orange County. The full story of Luc's process can be seen on my wife's (Candace Griffith) page. You can find it by clicking on our team name "Luc's All-stars." Any small donation would be wonderful for this awesome cause. They truly do amazing work and this money doesn't go to waste.
