“I will be forever grateful to the many, many wonderful providers who first saved Jordan’s life, and then worked so tirelessly to limit any long-term negative outcomes from his near-death experience. They never lost sight of a future for him that included a complete recovery. Thanks to them, Jordan is home and solidly on the path back to a healthy, normal, teenage life. For us, it is a miracle.”
Jordan had one simple message for all of the doctors, nurses and others who cared for him, from Bishop, to Reno to UC Davis.
“I’m very thankful I’m alive,” he said. “Thanks for saving my life.”
