This is the Mending Milo's Heart Fund. Donations will be used for Milo's medical costs and related expenses that not covered by insurance.

Our baby Milo, born on August 29th, 2011 has a congenital heart defect called hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS). Basically it means that the left side of his heart did not develop as it should have and he will have to have at least three open heart surgeries to repair his heart. Milo had his first surgery about a week after being born and after a rollercoaster of ups and downs and about seven and a half weeks at Childrens Hospital of Atlanta Egleston is doing amazingly well! He's packing on the pounds and getting stronger everyday for his next surgery, which will probably be in January or February 2012. Milo also has a cleft palate that will be formally evaluated by doctors in Atlanta next month as well. From what we gather, they probably won't to repair that until he is at least one year old though.

All of this of course has put a strain on our family in everyway possible. The Menger family truly appreciates your donations more than you can possibly imagine. We've been absolutely overwhelmed at the amount of sympathy and support we have received up to this point.. Without your kindness we would not have been able to make it this far.
