Yes...he IS as ornery as that grin suggests!
Sweet Henry Jordan Whitacre. Toddler, son, grandson, friend, Jesus-lover, kidney kid! Henry was born in July of 201, after already undergoing TWO operative procedures in-utero in an effort to save his kidneys following a diagnosis of Bladder Outlet Obstruction. Now, three-and-a-half years later, Henry is waiting for a kidney transplant after being on dialysis from the time he was born. The smile you see is not a fake by any means. Through all his trials and tribulations, too many surgeries to count, and many MANY hospital stays, Henry can ALWAYS be seen with a smile on his face.
As you might imagine, life with a toddler who has kidney disease can be...unpredictable! Just in the last few months, Henry has undergone anasthesia 5 times to correct the placement of his dialysis catheter in order to ensure it works correctly. As parents we are constantly watching for signs of "The Fountain" since Henry's digestive system doesn't work quit...
