Christopher is 5 Years Old

Hard to believe that 5 years have flown by and "Baby" Christopher is not a baby any more.

Pictured here is how he looked 5 years ago just after his heart transplant had been performed.

For those of you who have followed his 'health adventures' this update will thrill you.

For those of you who do not know his story --

"Baby" Christopher was born with a severe heart defect -- so severe that he had to have a heart transplant when about one month old.

Following the transplant, he remained in the hospital for almost 2 ½ years because his kidneys failed and he needed constant dialysis.

Then when about 3 years old he received a renal transplant from his dad --

and since then he has been at home growing and becoming a 'neato kiddo.'

Recently his dad wrote an article that was published in the Register Guard in Eugene, Oregon (a Newspaper for which he had worked) telling of Christopher's 5th Birthday.

You will definitely want to read this article and see a picture of how he looks today.
