Caysen's Journey

Caysen was born on December 22, 2010. He weighed 5 lbs 2 oz and was 18 inches long. His parents were awaiting his arrival.

He has been in NICU at University of Michigan hospital in Ann Arbor MI, since he was life flighted there on December 23, 2010. He was born with the condition TEF type C (tracheosophageal fistula type C). Due to the TEF his esophagus was in two parts and he could not eat through his mouth. He underwent surgery in Ann Arbor on day 2 of his life where his fistula was tied off, yet the gap in his esophagus could not be repaired. Caysen has a G tube (feeding tube) so he could gain weight and begin to grow. His esophagus was attached on March 18, 2011 and is working well so far.
Caysen needs your good thoughts, prayers and love to help him (and his parents) through this rough start.

He has a lot of respiratory issues along with his condition and 16 surgeries, some big, some minor.Caysen had a trach put in on April 1, 2011 and it is working great. He is now off the ventilator and just needs a mist mask for bedtime.He has been such a fighter and we are so proud of him. We are awaiting his transfer to Boston to he him fixed and home.
As most of you know Caysen was excepted to Boston Hospital where they specialize in EA/TEF. We are asking for donations to help with traveling expenses to go with him and be with him for a couple days. Unfortunatly our Nonprofit is for other TEF families and we are unable to use it for our selves. If you are able to help the Tenney's travel with Caysen please donate.This is our last hope for Caysen!
