Molly's Kids: Freak trampoline accident shows brain injury in Mooresville girl

I don’t know 10-year-old Bailey in Mooresville, but am getting ready to watch her on our new Morning Break show (starts at 9 a.m).

Dad Jamie Kay has been telling me about his daughter. She has a pretty amazing story.

Bailey is now home after many surprise months in Levine Children's Hospital. He says on August 30th, Bailey was jumping on a trampoline and suddenly came into the house and said she hurt her head. Then she went unconscious.

A frantic Jamie called 911. Bailey was airlifted to Levine’s.

She was in critical condition and unconscious. Jamie still wasn’t sure exactly what happened.

Turns out Bailey had suffered a brain aneurysm. A CT scan later showed a brain arteriovenous malformation – or AVM for short. That means a tangle of abnormal blood vessels connecting arteries and veins in the brain.

After lots of uncertainty, Bailey was finally able to go home last week. Three months after the fact. She’s excited to get back to Woodland Heights Elementary PTO, Mooresville NC and see her friends.

Thanks, Jamie, for reaching out.
