Family and Friends of Shawn & Ashlie Gleinser are uniting to help with medical expenses for their newborn son, Grayson Edward Gleinser.

Our precious Grayson was born with Hirschprung's Disease, a congenital disorder of the colon. He was born on May 23, 2012. He was transferred to the NICU just hours after he was born. He underwent a biopsy followed by corrective surgery on June 1st, during which a 6-inch portion of his colon was removed. Many, many prayers have been lovingly lifted for Grayson and his family. His surgery was successful, Hallelujah!! THANK YOU!!!

Please continue to keep Grayson, Shawn and Ashlie in your prayers. If you would also like to help with their medical expenses, please make a donation here. Large or small, every gift helps and we all THANK YOU so very much for your love and kindness.

UPDATE-June 6, 2012: I'm thankful to update that after spending his first two weeks of life in the hospital NICU, little Grayson was released to GO HOME TODAY!!! Shawn and Ashlie are finally bringing their son home, and are blessed beyond words!

UPDATE-June 20, 2012: Grayson has been home for two weeks now, and is healing well. He is challenged by some lingering concerns related to his Hirschprung's Disease, such as spitting up his food and extreme, painful diaper rash despite prescription medications. However, he is heaing and getting better every day! He has had several follow up visits with the surgeon and pediatrician. Everyone is keeping a close, watchful eye on our Grayson.

UPDATE: June 23, 2012: HAPPY ONE MONTH BIRTHDAY, GRAYSON!!
Shawn and Ashlie said: Grayson is 1 month today!!! It's been the longest month but the fastest month ever... Our love for our little one is beyond words, he has turned our world upside down but in the best way!!! We are so happy he is home and we get to love on him like crazy!!!

UPDATE: June 29, 2012: Grayson is doing well. He is gaining weight, sleeping better (when he sleeps), his diaper rash is almost gone and he is more alert all the time. He even blesses us with sweet, precious smiles! Love him so!!

My husband Mark and I (Grandpa & Granny) get to spend the whole day with Grayson on July 2nd while Shawn and Ashlie are both back at work. We are so excited! Will take lots of pics and share some on here afterward too. Thank you all for your loving prayers and your donations!!!
