Miracles happen every day at Valley Children’s Hospital, and the Thomas family expected one for their 2-year-old, Anthony. They anxiously waited week after week to experience it, enduring a string of days that dragged like years. “The first month I was so stressed,” said Timica Thomas, Anthony’s mother, recalling the frightful circumstance of keeping watch over her critically injured son in the Hospital. “He was not even moving,” she said. “For Anthony to be able to move again was not a promise we were given.”
