My St. Mary's Experience


Watch Me Pitch a No-hitter with the New York Yankees!
Chris

I am 11 year old boy. I had a baseball accident this past year when I was warming my arm up pitching in the batter's cage to my dad and he hit a line-drive and injured my right eye. I spent four days in Pediatrics ICU at St. Mary's. My eye injury was bad, I had three facial fractures, I couldn't see, my face was swollen and black and blue, there was blood built up in my eye, and they thought I had a leak from my brain into my eye. But by the grace of God, and some really, really, smart and quick thinking of all five of the doctors who helped me, my vision is back to normal. My pupil doesn't dilate normally, but my vision is 20/20 again. My eye doctor Dr. G. Hayden told us that it will dilate back to normal in time. I am back to playing my favorite sport. I want to just say, THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! to the two trauma doctors, Pediatric doctor, ENT doctor, and Dr. G. Hayden for putting me back together again, and I hope God blesses you, like you blessed me with your medical knowledge! Just remember and don't forget my name, cause one day you will receive MLB tickets to watch me pitch a no-hitter with the New York Yankees!

I want to thank the nurses, also, for taking care of me, my mom and my dad during our stay at St. Mary's.
