|Elizabeth "Liz" Diane Bradley|
|April 11, 1991- May 8, 2009|
My daughter celebrated her 18th birthday April 11, 2009, just one short month before she was due to deliver a precious life. She was a very athletic, vibrant and healthy young lady that was looking forward to motherhood. Liz went into labor and off to the hospital we all went. She had a beautiful labor and delivery and gave birth to a precious baby by Jaden Geovanny May 6, 2009 at 3:21am. At 5:00am she nursed her baby boy and everything was great. She went to sleep but woke up at 8:30am in excruciating pain. After almost 24 hours of her condition worsening and only being treated for pain management I requested she be transferred. It was immediately identified that her lungs were filled with fluid and her heart was only functioning at 25% capacity. She was intibated and soon after that she was diagnosed with NF and underwent emergency surgery where 98% of her entire vaginal area had to be removed along with her uterus which were completely filled with infection and the flesh was partially dead. Although the surgery went well the bacteria had already made its way to her blood. Our precious daughter and new Mommy passed away around 2:30pm May 8th, 2009.
Liz was a thoughtful, caring, huge hearted young woman that was gifted with lighting up any room that she entered. Her smile and giggles were so unbelievably beautiful and contagious. She was easy going, down to earth, sincere and honest. Liz was friends with all peer groups and had a special touch with children and elderly. Liz was very athletic and she excelled at every sport she tried. Even some boys couldn’t keep up with her on basketball court.
We love you our sweet Lizzy "B" and will miss you tons until we see you again in Heaven.
