Alexus 1 ½ years old

Slide 8:

We had an appointment with the neurosurgeon scheduled for March 19, 2008 (which was her birthday) to plan on a surgery date to try and help her stop having the prolonged seizures. Unfortunately, March 12, 2008 I (mom) woke up at 5 a.m. to Lexi having a seizure and for some reason this time I knew that it was the worst one she had ever had! I called 911 and waited for the ambulance to come and they flew to the hospital. Her seizure lasted 4 ½ hours just at the hospital, not including however long it was at home, before they were able to stop it. By the time it did stop, Alexus had had several strokes and was completely blind and had no control over her bowels and urine. Lexi was life flighted to Nationwide Childrens Hospital in Columbus, where the dr’s did a bunch of tests and confirmed that Alexus was septic, meaning she had infection in her blood stream throughout her body.

Slide 9:

On March 13, 2008 Alexus was pronounced brain dead from a seizure that had lasted longer than 4 hours and caused her to go septic. She was 6 days before her second birthday! Lexi , you will never ever be forgotten, you will be with me always! I love you baby girl! --Mom

Slide 10:

When God Calls little children to dwell with Him above, We mortals sometimes question the wisdom of His love. For no heartache compares with the death of one small child who does so much to make our world seem wonderful and mild . Perhaps God tires of calling the aged to His fold, so He picks a little rosebud before it can grow old. God knows how much we need them, so He takes but a few To make the land of heaven more beautiful to view. Believing this is difficult, still, somehow we must try, the saddest word mankind knows will always be goodbye. So when a little child departs, we who are left behind must realize God loves children…Angels are hard to find.

Slide 11:

Lexi , It has now been 3 years since you’ve went to heaven, but it seems like just yesterday I was holding you and hearing you say “ yook ”. I miss you soooo much, I hope you know this. Aedyn talks about you a lot and misses you so much too. I can’t wait til I can see you again and I know I will someday. I love you baby girl and will always have you in my heart! Love, Mom
