baby Keaton needs our support for his tracheostomy and beyond so his family can focus on him and not the financial part of his care.

Keaton was born at 33 weeks and flew through the NICU. Then at three weeks old he stopped breathing, he spent three weeks on a ventilator ,we thought it was just a virus. Little did we know the journey we were about to be headed on. Four days after coming home he had his first seizure he was life flighted to dallas where we learned about his brain damage and what it could possibly mean for him meaning he may or may not walk have learning difficulties and may have trouble speaking. Along with these issues he has congenital heart disease and is not able to eat a whole lot by mouth so he is fed through a tube they call a Mickey button in his belly. After the seizure incident and spending two and a half weeks in NICU at children's medical center Dallas we went home for eight more days only to find him unresponsive and lethargic , we were agin life flighted to children's medical center where we found he had meningitis. We decided to do a sleep study while there and found that he has severe obstructive sleep apnea and laryngomalacia we did a superglottoplasty surgery and things seemed to be going well and we went home. Two weeks later again Keaton was unresponsive and his heart rate was 230 and his respirations were very high so we were yet again life flighted to children's which ends us to where we are now. here in a week or two he will be getting a tracheostomy and hopefully with that he will have a better quality of life and be able to breathe, what it means for us is a lot of traveling, child care expenses, lodging expensess, and the cost of buying him the things he needs and to make him happy . We have been out of pocket a lot but keep thinking it will be our last hospital stay but what I am learning is that this is the sixth of many more to come and our family just needs some help with the financial part so we can be more focused on the emotional. Anything you can do will help and we would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you the Weinstein family
