His mommy has yet to meet him due to her surgery, His daddy is in the air force and is with him now. The hospital he is in is 6 hours away from base. The doctors have told the family to expect a hospital stay of a month or more. With thst being said the out of pocket expenses for his wonderful parents will be extreme. We are asking that you please join us with helping in defraying these costs and show them that they are surrounded by wonderful people that love them.
Samantha and Leonard are two of the most loving, giving people you will ever have the pleasue of knowing.
Liam continues to remain under a myriad of antibiotics and pain meds, but the pain meds help him to rest and not be in so much discomfort. He's now also got a feeding tube that's actually bypassing his stomach; this is done so that he won't vomit and whatnot (his got the tube for the respirator down his throat), but that means that Liam will now be able to start having his first milk from his mother. With that being said, every doctor and nurse that's been in contact with Liam has been somewhat in awe of his strength smile emoticon He's got an extremely strong grip, and has excellent muscle structure. They've also all noted how big his feet and hands are, so lil Liam's one strong Irish boy wink emoticon
SURGERY: Sometime tomorrow we'll be talking with the surgeons that will be performing the open heart procedure on Tuesday. Once we know more details, we’ll post it to the CaringBridge site.
KIDNEY: Liam’s got a lil bit of an issue with one of his kidneys. It’s something they will investigate further sometime after his surgery, and it’s not life threatening.
Finally, Sam and I are just simply in awe over the outpouring of love, support, positive thoughts and prayers for our lil Liam. We tell him about EVERY SINGLE person that’s reached out. I know he’s so thankful to all of you wonderful friends, family, and strangers that are strangers no more smile emoticon Samantha, Liam, our families, and I are truly humbled by the love that's been shown; please please know that.
Finally, I just want to reiterate that it'd be impossible to like and respond to every post, but we read ALL of them; EVERY SINGLE ONE. I love you all and am indebted to you for your generosity of words, support, love, prayers, and caring; from the depths of my soul.....thank you.
— feeling thankful with Samantha Kelley and 3 others.
