Taken together, parents have one of the most difficult jobs in the world: taking a brand new life and nurturing it into a fully grown adult of 18 years. Moreover, even when those 18 years are over, your work is not completed, according to the law. There are many difficulties along the way, but becoming a parent is one of the most rewarding experiences a person can have.
We make certain that our babies are properly restrained in infant car seats, and we teach preschoolers how to use seatbelts in combination with their booster seats. Fruits and vegetables are served them every day, vitamin supplements are administered, and they are kept on a strict sleep schedule. They are warned not to do this or that for fear of being injured.
However, in the end, everything is in God’s hands.
Coralynn Eve Sobolik’s parents from Iowa had spent the last 12 months spoiling and protecting their darling little baby. Despite this, she became infected with a horrible infection that swiftly took Cora’s health.
She had caught parainfluenza and was suffering from serious difficulties as a result. Meagan and Paul discovered that their daughter was having problems breathing and took her to the nearest hospital.
The decision was taken to move Cora to the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Rochester, Minnesota, since she was weakening by the second. But first, doctors had to sedate and intubate her for the journey, and unfortunately, her heart stopped pumping during the surgery.
While Meagan, Paul, and Cora’s grandmother watched helplessly, the medical professionals performed CPR on Cora for about 25 minutes. Cora was brought to the hospital after being stabilized, where physicians said her heart and echocardiography were good, but a CAT scan revealed she had suffered brain damage.
Paul and Meagan knew Cora wouldn’t be the same little girl they’d loved for the previous 12 months when she awoke, but that didn’t bother them.
They all they wanted was for their daughter to gaze at them, hug them, and grasp their hands. They were never given the opportunity.
Cora’s condition worsened throughout night and into the next day. Meagan and Paul received devastating news at 4:45 p.m. on Easter Sunday, April 21, 2019. Cora was brain dead.
Watch Cora as she is surrounded by loving people who are saying her goodbye before she gives the gift of life to others around her. Keep in mind that this is a tough video to see and that you should bring tissues along with you.
