This is Austin, he had open spina bifida, he was my world my rock. Austin had a smile that would shine through the best and the worst times he was very social visited everyone made everyone happy around him even though he went through so much everyday. He was extremely happy. He overcame so many limits and boundaries the doctors gave him. I flew down to get him In October of 2022 to bring him to be around me here and make memories. He had 3 stage 4 pressure wounds that were down to his hip bones and spinal cord and severely malnourished at 83 lbs. We fought like hell to get him well until the IV antibiotics stopped having its effect and his body was rejecting them. I had to talk to Austin at a eight year olds mentality on his medical decisions and whether or not to place a DNR or try life sustaining measures Austin didn’t want to be on any machines and he was tired. He lived the rest of his time here on earth with determination and his fighting personality that it wasn’t gonna affect him and faced everyday with a smile and happiness. He fought with grace and perseverance and ended his battle in the early morning hours on Sunday July 23 and went peacefully and bravely into gods arms wrapped in my arms as he gave me strength to be there for him at the end. He earned his WINGS and will forever watch down until we meet again!!!\nAustin had a personality that didn’t fit into his mortal body and everyone around him that knew him saw it and it infected everyone who came into contact with him.
