short storty 'LUCKY ESCAPE'

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Lucky escape "At last"......It was the summer of 2001 and I was 10 years old, getting ready to start secondary school. I remember being so excited; because I was finally growing up and all I ever wanted was my parents to treat me like they treated my older brothers. You see I have 5 brothers who are all older than me. I was always seen as the baby of the family and it made me feel miserable, dad would say thing like "help your brother cross the road" and " take your little brother to school, we don't want him getting lost now do we?".......the school was only two roads down from where we lived; and all the other kids on the road went by themselves except for me. My older brother Nick who was 16 years old used to take me, and always teased me about it "come on then you big baby, lets get you to school" On Monday 25th of July, my parents were mowing the lawn, although it was a very hot day I was ...read more.

"Yeah, yeah your rights go check on him he hasn't come out of his room all day"...... "Hey son how are you feeling" "I'm okay" ....but I wasn't okay at all far from it I felt like someone was poking needles inside me "are you going to come down then jay" he said in a caring voice "I'll be down in a minute dad' I replied slouched against my bedroom wall. As the day of the results loomed ....my condition worsened I could hardly walk my dad had to carry me to the doctors. In the waiting room I was gasping for breath as if I had ran a marathon "what is happening to me" it cant just be an infection, I felt like I was dying. By the time the nurse called my name I was completely knackered, and couldn't move. So I stayed in the waiting room whilst my dad went inside as he shook the doctor's hand and sat down the door slammed shut. ...read more.

Conclusion

"Am I going to die then"... "No... You won't, will find you a cure ok"... "Does that mean I won't be going to school then".... "You have to get better first" Funnily enough at the time I wasn't scared at all the more I learnt about what leukemia was the less frightened I was about it.........the doctor forwarded me to the local children's hospital ....and I was immediately put on a bone marrow register I was also given chemotherapy to help me along........ All the time though I stayed at home mum and dad treated me differently and so did my brothers they stopped teasing me....... and 11 months down the line a donor was found. Mum was ecstatic and dad was over the moon. I felt as though I had a lucky escape as I knew that many people die waiting for one ....since then I've started to appreciate life even more after my near brush with death I'm glad I've had a lucky escape and will be forever grateful to my donor. ?? ?? ?? ??
