Amber had a cardiac arrest and had to be resuscitated. Doctors told us there was no hope of Amber surviving, and if she did she would be brain damaged, deaf, and lose all four limbs, but that did not matter to me, I loved her just the same.
Amber came out of her coma and fought her way back to life; doctors were shocked she pulled through - they told us it was a miracle.
Amber was transferred to another hospital where she had a nine-hour amputation. We thought she would lose all four limbs, and when she came out of theatre I feared the worst. Amber lost her right leg, all her left fingers and all left toes. We were in hospital for four months.
Now Amber is doing really well. She has an artificial leg and she runs on it, she loves horseriding, swimming, kickboxing, and many more. Amber is not brain damaged or deaf; she is perfect just like a normal child of her age. We are so proud of her no words can explain it. I still hurt knowing what my baby has been through, I wish it was me, but I have to be strong for her.
