Diego Sanchez born 12/17/2009. He has spent most of his life at the hospital. He has a rare seizure disorder. They last from 3 seconds to 9 hours. Drs are unsure what to do. My sister had quit her job. She has two other little boys.

Diego was born 12/17/2009.  He started having seizures the first day.  They kept him for a week to monitor and do multiple test.  When they released him his seizures were increasing in length but my sister didnt know he was having seizures until she took him to a specialist.  His seizurs was so strong they admitted him to PICU.  NCBaptist transfered him to Texas Children Hospital in Houstan for a month.  They discharged him because didn't know how to stop them.  Now he is at Santa Rosa Children's hospital.  They are doing mulitple test and trying different drug dosages.  He spent 11 days on a ventilator.  His last strong seizure lasted 9 hours April 1st.  Presently he is off the ventilator since April 8th.  His seizures have been shorter, lasting only 1 hour.  My sister had to quit her job to be with him.  Not all the medical team has been trustworthy of Diego's care.  Her husband does work but they can not afford they extra cost.  Their deductable for their insurance is 6,000.  He has had to use credit cards to pay for hotels,gas and eating out while in Houston.  The Ronald McDonald house was always full.  I would like to decrease their stress by helping them out.  I have had many people offer to help them as well.  A fundraiser will give people an opportunity to help and bless this family.  Your prayers are greatly appreciated as well.  This dark time has opened our eyes to the purpose of suffering and trusting our Father in heaven.
