the winter after my grandfather passed away I started to get really bad headaches to the point where I stopped eating and the only thing I would drink was apple juice. my mom took me to A.I DuPont hospital for children in Wilmington de on 3 occasions and was told the same thing it was from depression and it was nothing well the last time my mom took me in she told them we were not leaving that there was something wrong well that last time they admitted me and tested me for everything under the sun lime disease abstain bar every auto amunine disease you could think of and the only thing that showed up was that my white blood cell count was high well they gave me jello which I even threw that up about 3 weeks into my hospital stay the doctor was going to send me home that there was nothing medically wrong with me my dad being the hot head that he is flipped out on the doctor and said if you send her the F@8* home I want a hospital bed and heart monitor in my room since my heart rate was running a little low he said better yet I want a F#@*%^! American doctor on her case so the next day there was that's when the vision problems started my dad came in and I said daddy how come there is 2 of you he said what do you mean there are two of me I said I see two of you daddy he held up 2 fingers up and asked ash how many fingers am I holding up I said 4 and at that time a nurse was walking in and he did it again and again I said 4 that's when they all knew something was wrong really wrong a few nights go by and it was after midnight my heart rate dropped and my oxygen level was only 28 luckily for my room mate her parents heard it and ran to the nurses station it took them 15 minutes to wake me up and the nurse told me that if she did not wake me up I would have died the next day my child hood neurologist came in with the head doctor at the hospital and said we need to get a mri and now the neurologist told my family its one of 2 things a brain tumor or a pseudo tumor they had trouble finding a place in the state of Delaware to do my mri because A.I's mri machines were down so all their patients were going to Christiana so the next best thing was one out of state and they got me one at Thomas Jefferson in Pa that night at about midnight the neurologist came in and did a spinal tap and said if the doctor I had before sent me home I would have died within 2 weeks because the pressure around my brain was so high they did not know how I lived as long as I did
