Freakout Friday: Update on my nephew

It's been a long week.

Did you miss what's up? Full story here, but short story is that Sammy has TAPVR which is a type of congenital heart defect (CHD). He took a med flight to the children's hospital in Oakland Sunday and is in the NICU there.


Earlier this week, they had to put a feeding tube in as Sammy wasn't eating well enough. They're waiting to see if they can do the surgery early next week.

On top of that, my mother is pulling things and adding even more drama to the situation. Authorities have been notified and she is not allowed at the hospital or at their home.

Kels lost her job in December due to an accident at work. Jesse's been trying but can't get hired on anywhere. They're on medicaid, but they still have a lot of expenses to cover. The hospital is over an hour away from their home, which means this little family is spending a lot on gas and hotel rooms to stay close to Sam. They also have their sweet two-year-old Marissa to take care of as well.

We would so appreciate any help you can give. We've set up a facebook page for those wanting to follow Sam's story more frequently, and a GoFundMe to help with expenses.
