He was born with a kidney in his hip and cysts in his lungs.
Right now he is in the hospital for the second time since birth being treated for jaundice (bilirubin).
For those of you who don't know, "Hyperbilirubinemia, more precisely hyperbilirubinemia due to the unconjugated fraction, may cause bilirubin to accumulate in the gray matter of the central nervous system, potentially causing irreversible neurological damage leading to a condition known askernicterus. Depending on the level of exposure, the effects range from clinically unnoticeable to severe brain damage and even death. Newborns are especially vulnerable to hyperbilirubinemia-induced neurological damage and therefore must be carefully monitored for alterations in their serum bilirubin levels".
We are slowly eating through our savings and bill money due to the cost of travel back and forth to the hospital, meals on the road, and babysitters for our other boys.
If you could find it in your hearts to donate to my GoFundMe at:
it would be greatly appreciated.
If you don't like donating and getting "nothing" in return, you can always buy one of my books from the links in my main page. I don't make much in the way of profit from them, but every penny counts. And even if you end up hating the book, you can say to yourself "Hey self, at least I made sure a sick child and his family got some help. Aren't I terrific?"
Thanks everyone. Thank you for reading my blogs, responding, and just being you.
