$21,552 of $100,000 goal

Created March 25, 2018
Kaenon James Slagle-Francis was born on Wednesday March 21. He was flown to Portland on March 22. Kaenon then went into emergency surgery Friday morning at 9am. (March 23, 2018) The doctors did not know how severe the surgery would be or exactly what they would be doing until they opened him up to see exactly what was happening. His colon was emptying into his bladder. He is in the ICU unit of Randall Children’s Hospital. His first surgery went well, but he will have 3-4 more surgeries in the next 4-6 weeks before the team of doctors will know more. He’s a fighter and God has been good. His mom and dad are staying in Portland with him and need our help. Please consider helping relieve this financial burden. Blake and Ashlee now face medical bills, medication/supplement costs, travel expenses & being present for several appointments each week, both will be unable to work for the next month & therefore their finances will suffer. It is unclear when Ashlee will be able to return to work. I will update you when I know more. For the meantime, just keep him in your prayers. We are very hopeful that everything will go smoothly. The hospital staff have been incredible. We know we have amazing prayer warriors out there please cover this family.

Updates from mama...
Last night 7/22
His bowel had wrapped itself around some scar tissue and was not getting blood flow so it was dying. They said if I had waited to bring him in or if they had waited to do surgery, he would have died. They are keeping the stomach open for the next two or three days to monitor the intestines and we will go back in after they are certain of the repair and stitch him up. If the repair does not seem successful, they will have to remove that section of his intestine and create a new stoma. It’s crazy to think back of our workout, photo shoot and walk with Amy yesterday. He was so happy and chatty. To think that at 8pm last night, things took an extreme turn and he went from 0-100 in 6 seconds flat is crazy. The doctor was so grateful that I was able to pinpoint the exact moment that the stoma had stopped working last night. God is good and we are so blessed that Kaenon has the best care at Randall’s. #kaenonjames #careforkaenon @ Randall Children's Hospital at Legacy Emanuel

Today 7/23
The tissue of the small intestine they operated on last night became necrotic, so they are taking him back into surgery now to remove the dead portion of the intestine and see if anything else needs to be done. #kaenonjames #careforkaenon

Kaenon had a setback last night and will be in the hospital a little bit longer... thanks to the prayer warriors who continue to intercede on this little ones behalf.
I have been updated on the memorial service for his grandpa, Mark Francis. It will be July 28 at 2pm at Sisters Community Church. Please keep this entire family in your prayers and support them however you can.
