Megan Elizabeth Moss
September 26, 2002 - August 14, 2004
Megan was a healthy baby until she came down with a viral infection that destroyed her digestive and immune systems at the age of 10 months. She was extremely sick for a year and we were in the hospital more than we were out for that year. Her illness turned into a very rare blood disorder, secondary Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis, or HLH. She did not respond very well to the medication, and soon, her lungs, liver, and spleen were destroyed.
Megan went back to the arms of God on Saturday, August 14, 2004.The day after she died, her 2 year old sister, Laura, told me that MayMay was now an angel. She had on a pretty white dress and she didn't walk anymore, she flew on pink wings. When I found this web site, and made the decision to have Megan's portrait done, I specifically requested that it be done according to Laura's description. I included Roar, Megan's stuffed animal who went to all her surgeries to keep her safe, since he was buried with her to deliver her safely into the arms of God.
