Teenager Learns to Walk And Talk Against All Odds After Botched Appendix Surgery Left Her Paralysed


Anna had been feeling slightly unwell stomach pains she’d had them a couple of days my mum actually took her up to
Wigan Infirmary just to the A&E the day after they do a couple of scans and then
they say it’s her appendix so off she goes to theatre back on the ward Anna
was all twitching and I was asking people what was wrong and they sent me
away for like meant to get a cup of tea and when I will coming back the anaesthetist ran past me so I just chased him I don’t know why I chased him I
haven’t got a clue but I chased him right up to rainbow ward and I asked him then
was it about my Anna and he told me it was nothing to do with that I
find out a good half an hour later she’d suffered a cardiac arrest she’d been 15 three days she was doing amazing at school very very high estimated grades for her GCSEs fully talking more
than competent teenager don’t get me wrong she was cheeky and give me a bit
of grief but last year while she was well above average brown belt at karate
there were nothing she couldn’t do nothing at all she was just one of them
gifted children but I know she come home she couldn’t talk she she couldn’t do
anything anything at all and I had compared her to a newborn baby as in the
newborn baby can’t do anything for themselves and neither could Anna I’d spend six months easy six months
just researching different words in Google medical injuries children
Pediatrics brain injury and there was only one name that kept coming back so
yeah I sent them an email that’s how we started with Slater and Gordon I’d say Anna’s had the best of everything
and that is including the legal side of it as I did research and research and
research and every person I’ve met from the legal team have always had
Anna’s best interests at heart definitely she’s our Anna my Anna
and that’s what the call her so that that is the personal side of it she’s not A.W. or she’s not client X she’s Anna and they’ve always maintained that
they’ve treated her as an individual and that’s what Anna is everything that Anna needs Slater and Gordon have helped us guarantee that we will get that that is there now the interim payments have been important making sure Anna’s got the best therapists
the best equipment the right wheelchair the parallel bars the plinth was a
vehicle on the front we don’t have to rely on public transport Anna’s bought
her own house Slater and Gordon have oh they’ve been great on every aspect of it
though and it’s sorted and Anna’s financially sorted for life and I thank
Slater and Gordon for that because I wouldn’t have been able to do it without law
that’s a definite and never ever complains never says why
me doesn’t live in self-pity for that in itself is inspirational because
everything was so unlikely unlikely to do this not be able to do that
well she’s proved everybody wrong you have you quite like that though don’t you yeah yeah they’re wrong we do
to have this recovery were only a dream
they were to even beginning its reality now what’s your favourite motto being in a wheelchair won’t stop me being in your chair won’t stop you
