Dear friends:

Below is the update from Eric on Monday, March 25. We would like to thank each of you for the overwhelming outpouring of support and love for Eric, Chrissy and Winston over the past month.

With all of our appreciation,
Marc & Erika

Update: We would like to start this update by thanking everyone for all your love and support through this very difficult time of our lives. The support for us and Winston has changed our lives tremendously and we are truly grateful to have been parents of such a strong little warrior man. Winston struggled hard this afternoon and was a trooper until the very end. Unfortunately his heart just could not keep up with all the pressure of taking off all of his post operative fluids. Winston found his peace tonight at around 8:30 pm and his struggles are over. Winston life, although only lasting 25 days has allowed us to truly understand a parents love....wow what a kiddo. Winston's fight is now finally over and he is as peaceful as a little lamb. Mommy and daddy love you very very much. Please understand if we do not respond directly to messages or phone calls for a little while. We are unsure of any future arrangements for Winston and we are not planning a formal service at this time. With a very heavy heart we make this final post.

On March 1, 2013, Chrissy and Eric welcomed 5lb 10oz William Winston Blevins into the world.  That same day they learned that Baby Winston has a very rare condition known as Heterotaxy Syndrome.  Heterotaxy impacts organ development and has directly affected the development of Winston’s heart. Due to the complexity of his condition the family has turned to the talented and caring staff at UVA Medical Center’s PICU in Charlottesville, VA. In just a few short days since Winston’s arrival, he has undergone one major surgery on his heart, and faces more in the very near future.  As the family stands by Winston’s side during this difficult time it brings much unexpected expenses as they have decided to relocate to Charlottesville during his time in the UVA Medical Center versus traveling the 250 miles back and forth from Bristol, VA.  

The outpouring of prayers and emotional support has been wonderful and we ask that everyone continue sending them to Winston, Chrissy and Eric, and the rest of the family throughout this difficult time. For those of us eager to find more ways to help, we have set up this site to provide financial support directly to the Blevins Family. Our hope is to share this page with as many friends, family, and even sympathetic strangers who are able to help offset expenses as the family deals with this incredible challenge.  All donations go to Eric and Chrissy to assist with medical and travel expenses, and the cost of a comfortable place for the family to stay in Charlottesville, so they can focus all their energy into Winston’s recovery.

I have been praying for little Winston ever since I first laid eyes on him here in Charlottesville. I was on the team that did surgery on him here the first day at UVA and I wanted you to know that I sat and prayed over your child before and after surgery. I pray he does well and that your family and friends give you all the support you need during this stressful time. I do believe in the power of God's healing and His mercy and wanted you to know that I continue to pray and wish him well.
