“All I want for Christmas is to find the Nurse who saved my life.
“My family was involved in a car accident in McKinney, TX on November 22, 2000. My parents did not survive. My 4 siblings and I were injured. I was a 13-month-old baby and suffered severe head trauma. In addition to my near fatal injuries, my veins were collapsed, making it difficult to place an I.V. Without an I.V. I wouldn’t get the life saving drugs I required.
“A nurse at North Central Medical Center in McKinney was tasked with inserting my I.V. She was afraid she was too late. But she didn’t give up. After several failed attempts, my nurse cried and prayed…
“And miraculously inserted medication directly into the bone marrow in my ankle.
“Now I’m 18 years old and getting ready to graduate from high school. I owe my life to that nurse and all the skilled practitioners at North Central Medical Center and Dallas Children’s Hospital.
“Please share so I can find her and tell her thank you!
Today Caleb deals with many limitations as a result of his traumatic brain injury, but he doesn’t let that stop him from enjoying life. He is a talented singer, a hardworking student, and an extra fun uncle. He is so grateful for the life he has lived thanks to this nurse.
In one of his many surgeries immediately following the car accident, Caleb received a zigzag incision from ear to ear on the top of his head. Caleb likes to shave his hair and wear the zigzag like a battle scar as he runs 5Ks to raise awareness for traumatic brain injury survivors. Read more about Caleb.
