My grandmother, having lost a son four months before I was born, didn’t take risk when it came to health. She knew how something major could appear so minor. We got to the hospital around eleven at night; the doctor had me jumping off the bed, when he started feeling my abdomen. I couldn’t remember anything past that, until I woke up to my mom crying out “Dakota wake up, you're okay,” then my grandmother saying “Stacy, he will be okay. Let god handle this and he will be
The surgery went fine but, the healing process the absolute worst. The nurses kept telling me that the more I tried to get through it the faster I would heal. I did whatever they told me and ended up out of the hospital in less that five days. I was back to normal in less than two weeks, although my mom was not convinced and I was not allowed to do basically anything. Courage is shown in the simplest things; I would not have been able to get through this without courage and hope.

Fast forward three years later and when the grants and money stopped coming in Dr, Rigler no longer took responsibility for Genie instead and she was transferred back to her mother which had all charges dropped against her for child abuse. But Genie did not react well to the home where such torment took place and Dorothy Wiley found it hard to raise her so she was put into the foster system where she would experience many different situations with the families she was put into. Finally, she hit her breaking point when she was admitted to the hospital because her foster parents would yell at her for vomiting and so she vowed never to open her mouth digressing now from being able to speak.

I even went for a few sessions after I gave birth to my son because I felt overwhelmed and similar symptoms to those of which I experienced when I was first diagnosed. Turns out I had postpartum depression instead. But what that showed me was the similarities between disorders and mental ailments. Through support, a change of diet, exercise, meditation and I’m proud to say no medication, I worked through my issues. Some people do benefit from using medication associated with the disorder, but I chose a holistic approach.
The case study that I chose was from Nursing Ethics Journal is titled, The twins: a case study in ethical deliberation. This case presents a nurses perspective about nine year old, Roman Catholic, Hispanic twins, who survived a very difficult preterm birth and were in a persistent vegetative state since childbirth. The parents took care of the twins along with their four other children, but the growing demand of the twins was starting to take a toll on the parents, so they decided to place the twins in an institution. From the time that the twins were admitted to the institution, they have been frequently admitted to the hospital related to respiratory illnesses and urinary tract infection, which were a result of their deteriorating immune system. The nurse’s role was to obtain a do not resuscitate (DNR) order from the parents due to the doctors stating the twins have less than a year left to live, and “why prolong the inevitable?” (Freysteinson, 2009).
Interviewee: Yeah. Interviewer: So, how did she go about that? Interviewee: Since she works at the hospital and she knows a lot of moms. She didn’t support it because people don’t eat healthy enough or eat right.

I always knew I wanted to be a part of the medical field as my mother is currently, I just couldn’t commit to anything, after all there’s so many fields, but after my substantial amount of time in the hospital, I realized that I was meant to be a pediatric surgeon. I was meant to save children just like me.
