Kelly and I met online through a mutual friend's referral and after our first few messages back and forth I knew we would be a good fit! She is the owner of The Beauty Market salon, located in the Broad Ripple Village in Indianapolis and one of her clients, whose son plays with ours on their travel soccer team, referred me! I love this small world of ours sometimes! <3
Kelly and her husband Chris have SUCH an amazing story of love, strength, surviving the odds, and perseverance. Their 2.5 year old Greyson had an extremely rough start to his life and they are still dealing with the ongoing concerns and maintenance to this day.
From mom Kelly: " Greyson was born with a rare esophageal abnormality (his type & variation of the abnormality make him the 2nd case in the world) that could not be repaired until he was 4.5months old. He has had 4 esophageal repairs, a lung repair & a bowel repair along with nearly 50 other surgeries He spent the majority of the first 2 years inpatient at Riley Hospital. On his first birthday he went into septic shock from IV access at his birthday party resulting in a lack of oxygen to his brain while being resuscitated causing him to have a stroke. The stroke caused damage to his brain resulting in seizures & scarring on the brain. He has made a near full recovery from his brain damage although his esophageal issues will be something we deal with likely for the rest of his life. He is g-tube fed but working hard in feeding therapy to hopefully one day eat by mouth. He has survived against all odds & baffled many specialists. He has maintained nothing but pure joy & love of life through even the most tragic times. We feel the most lucky because we were the mommy & daddy he chose to fight along with him & he is the sunshine of our lives & entire family"
I'm so excited to be there to welcome the newest little addition to their family when Kelly gives birth in a few weeks! Check back for a new post introducing the newest little Walsh family member <3
