My 7 year old cousin is Lucas. He is the cutest, sweetest, happiest kid ever. Seriously. Just one of those easy, laid back, love everyone kids.
Well, Lucas is currently brain dead at Maine Medical Center in Portland, ME. No one can figure out what happened. He started having severe migraines at Easter and they were so bad he was vomiting, etc. He was put on migraine medication, to no avail. Last night he stopped breathing at home and went into cardiac arrest. They revived him and took him to the ER. He went into cardiac arrest again, again he was revived and brought to the Level III PICU at Maine Medical Center. They ran more tests, did 2 more CT scans and still have no clue what happened. But he is no longer able to breathe on his own and his parents (my cousin and his wife) are now faced with a decision every parent dreads.
So here are pictures of my sweet, sweet cousin.
