My sister sherry is my inspiration. She has determination, courage and tremendous will power. Sherry has been sick for a long time. Sherry became ill in her early 20ís. Sherry and her identical twin have lupus, and antiphospholipid antibodies. They have both had numerous miscarriages, both had their spleen removed in the early 20ís, both have lupus, both had idiopathic thrombocytopenia, both have had blood clots in their legs and both have had meningitis. Sherry suffered 9 miscarriages prior to the birth of her last son Jacob. Jacob is now 4 years old. She was bedridden for 6 of those months and had to give herself heparin shots the whole nine months of pregnancy. Sherrys true nightmare began on july 8,2003. she had a severe headache and went to the emergency room. She was admitted to st. vincents hospital with bacterial meningitis. Sherry was in a vegetative coma by the second night. The neurologists didnít expect her to make it the first 24 hours. They told us she had severe brain damage from the swelling. They suggested nursing home placement and told us she wasnít a candidate for rehabilitation. Sherry remained in a vegetative coma for 3 months. She was paralyzed, comatose, had a tracheostomy tube, a feeding tube, and on the respirator and was completely unresponsive. Our family was by her side 24 hours a day seven days a week. We did a lot of praying and began searching for a miracle. Sherry was a stay at home mom of two boys and a wife of 15 years. Sherrys life revolved around her family and we believed that god didnít give her Jacob (after all she went through ) for us to raise. We knew the doctors had done everything possible, but we refused to give up. Our family has a lot of faith in prayer.
