AJ was admitted to the hospital Saturday morning at 1am. This was due to his PD (peritonitil dialysis) catheter not working properly. Good thing he came in as he went into emergency surgery on Saturday afternoon. He spent 3 hours in surgery with the best surgeon, only to find out his catheter was wrapped around his colon and filled with debris. Now mind you Aj has had this catheter since 3 days old. But after surgery Aj was in respiratory distress so they sent him to the PICU. They started him on high flow oxygen, which you would think would help, but not in my sons case. See AJ is extremely unique and has a very finikiy airway, so while one machine might work for a "normal" child, it won't work for Aj because the flow is too hard. So finally after many hours for asking to change this machine to help my son ( who I know better than they do) we finally got it. But at midnight my son started to decline and was doing it rather quickly, I kept telling the nurse but I kept getting told well he is clinically fine so we will hold off..after I physically had to rub my sons sternum and then pinch his nail bed to wake him up i knew something wasn't right..so I demanded he get put on the other machine..and after 5 mins on the new machine my son was wide awake, smiling and clapping his hands. So needless to say, MAMA knows best.

Alexander James (AJ) Willis-Davenport is a 19-month-old little boy who needs a lifesaving kidney transplant. The Davenport family first started this journey by being told that AJ would not survive childbirth because he has VACTERL Syndrome. His kidneys have not appropriately grown, resulting in end-stage renal disease. The doctors advised Kimmie that she should terminate the pregnancy because of these issues. Instead, the family chose to fight for their son’s life and got a second opinion. With the help of her High-Risk Pregnancy doctor and The Director of Fetal Surgery, Kimmie underwent several procedures that helped save his life. Kimmie began documenting her and AJ’s journey on her Facebook, bringing to life. AJ was born on October 29, 2020, and spent the next 89 days in the NICU; he was finally released 51 days later (March 19,2021) and went home to his family and met his big brother Neco. Still fighting for his life and on peritoneal dialysis every night for 10 hours, AJ has gone through 28 procedures and 19 surgeries to get us to this point to be eligible for a kidney. We thank GOD that he has brought us through this journey and pray for his continued guidance and strength.
