Gus' Friend Carter
Gus has several friends in Heaven. Carter is just one of many. I love to think about these kids playing in Heaven...they deserve carefree play and rest at the Lord's feet don't you think!?
Carter was born with gastroschisis which led to intestinal failure. He under went three intestinal transplants...one being a living donor bowel from him mom! This is a fairly new transplant so Carter and his family really were on the "cutting-edge" of research. I wish we could have tried living donor with Gus but it just wasn't the best option...we held out for the best and ultimately it was the best for him...not necessarily for me, but it was for him!
Carter's mom has been a huge encouragement to others, even when Carter died. You can read about Carter and his family at the Caringbridge site written by his mom.
