超暖心!整个社区给要动手术的小男孩提前过万圣节_双语新闻

A 4-year-old boy was given the chance to celebrate his favorite holiday early this year after a neighborhood in Illinois heard that he would miss the chance to trick or treat because of a vital surgery. Sonny Mead, who donned a Superman costume for the special day, hit more than 20 houses along his special trick-or-treat route and was even treated to a ride in a fire truck.

伊利诺伊州一名4岁的小男孩今年提前得到机会,庆祝他最喜欢的节日,因为一个邻居听说他会因为一项重要的手术而错过捣蛋或拿到糖的机会。桑尼.米德在这个特殊的日子里穿上了超人服装,在他的“不给糖就捣蛋”途中“袭击”了20多户人家,他甚至还被邀请乘坐消防车。

“He thinks today is Halloween,” Jackie Mead, the boy’s mom, told Fox 2 Now on Wednesday. “We let him pick his costume, and up until today he was going to be Spider-Man, and then he decided that he wanted to be Superman because he wants superpowers.”

男孩的妈妈杰基?米德周三告诉福克斯2频道:“他认为今天是万圣节。我们让他自己选择服装,直到今天,他都打算穿蜘蛛侠衣服的,后来他决定成为超人,因为他想要超能力。”

Sonny was diagnosed with craniosynostosis, which causes the skull bones to fuse prematurely, impacting brain growth. Sonny had pieces of his skull removed to give his brain more room to grow in 2015, and the bone was supposed to grow back but never did, his mom told the news outlet.

桑尼被诊断为颅缝早闭,这导致颅骨过早融合,影响大脑发育。桑尼的妈妈告诉新闻媒体,他的头盖骨在2015年被切除了,这样他的大脑就有了更大的生长空间,而这块骨头本来应该长出来的,但后来就再也长不出来了。

So on Friday, doctors will use a 3-D printer and bone from a cadaver to rebuild Sunny’s skull. His recovery is expected to take between two and six months, meaning he’ll be sidelined when Oct. 31 comes.

因此在周五,医生们将使用3D打印机和尸体骨头来重建桑尼的头骨。他预计需要2到6个月的时间康复,这意味着他将在10月31日出院。

But once Amanda Richert heard that her friend’s son would miss out on the trick-or-treating fun, Goshen Meadows residents, in Edwardsville, Ill., banded together to make sure he had his turn.

但是,当阿曼达.里奇特听说她朋友的儿子会错过“不给糖就捣蛋”的游戏时,伊利诺伊州爱德华维尔市戈申梅多斯镇的居民们配合起来以确保他有机会玩这个游戏。

“He wasn’t going to be able to trick-or-treat, and I just, as a mom, could not let that happen,” she told the news outlet.

她告诉新闻媒体:“他没法玩“不给糖就捣蛋”的游戏,而作为一个母亲,我不能让这种事情发生。”

Richert said the response was overwhelming.

里奇特说,人们的反应让人超级感动。
