Who is Bodi?
Hi, my name is Bodi. I was born on January 16, 2015 to two parents who love me so very much. I have 2 big sisters and one big brother. Boy do they love me! I am constantly being held, played with and sung to by them.
The nurse came in to talk to my Momma and she got really upset. The x-ray revealed that I had a large mass behind my heart and my liver and spleen were extremely large. Momma called my daddy and he immediately flew out to be with us. We were checked into the hospital to the hemotology and oncology floor.
The next day they took me into a big room where they said they would be taking pictures of my whole body. Momma laid me on a table and I became really sleepy. She whispered she loved me and then I fell asleep.
The doctors moved me into the PICU where I received a lot of attention. My daddy was there and so was my Rah Rah and Uncle Kahil. When Momma and Daddy went to talk to the doctors I was really upset so Uncle Kahil rocked me and I fell asleep.
The doctors said that the mass was indeed a tumor and that my liver was taking up my whole abdomen. It is pushing my diaphragm up and making it difficult for me to breathe. Also, my spine, trachea, and esophagus are also being squished. No wonder I was so fussy. The Oakland doctors decided it was best for us to be home. Mamaw and Papaw came out to California to snuggle me as well. I loved all of the attention but was ready to be home.
We want to thank everyone for all of the love and support we have been shown. Bryan and I are extremely heartbroken over Bodi’s diagnosis, but know that through prayer and the support of our loved ones that he is going to be healed and won’t even remember this terrible time.
