On March 25, 2017 Ethan was born to Jessica Surryhne and Chris Linton. By the next morning Jessica knew something wasn't right. He was immediately taken for evaluation and then flown to UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital. The amazing doctors there realized his pulmonary artery never opened. This is not something you can notice or test for until baby is born. He will need surgery but will recover and live a full life!!
Jessica and Chris are my clients and I've started this fund for the expenses they will incure while there in the city. They will be there for approximately three to four weeks. Although the hospital there allows them to stay, park and some meals are provided-there are many expenses that will come up and Chris will not be working.
Thank you for all your well wishes, prayers and support!

Ethan is at home now!
Though Ethan will make his continuous trips back to the hospital he is no longer in intensive recovery. Instead Ethan is on a home monitoring program where his heart and weight will be watched carefully. With being away from home and work so long all donations so far have been a tremendous help. Not to mention a blessing from you all. We ask for your continued support, sharing Ethan's campaign, and prayers that we see Ethan live a long life.
I can drink this all on my own.

I've updated a few photos and am posting his diagnosis' here. Please continue to support this family!
Here are Ethan's diagnosis.
1. Pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum - this is the primary problem.
2. Tricuspid valve and RV hypoplasia - these are secondary to #1
3. Right pulmonary artery stenosis - this is due to some scarring near the shunt. It is very common.
4. Left pulmonary vein stenosis - this one we don’t know why it happened

It has been two months since Ethan's 2nd open heart surgery. This month we are here in San Francisco once again, for another open heart surgery. It is scheduled for this upcoming Monday, the procedure will be a long one and will sadly not be the last for our little guy. They have found veins in his left ventricle that are creating problems with his lungs making it difficult to breathe and eat. Part of the pulmonary artery is also compressed. Thus Ethan has been on a feeding tube since the second surgery as well as the home monitoring program. The many trips to the clinic in town, to Santa Rosa for echoes and far trip's to San Francisco for incision check ups has made it a rough time. Due to the long durations of our trips we are unable to work thus making the stay at the hospital more difficult each time. Funds are essential but are hard to obtain in a city we only temporarily live in. We thank you all for your prayers and support, any contribution to our little family is greatly appreciated and helps more than anyone could imagine. Taking things day by day we pray Ethan's strength continues through this 3rd open heart surgery and his recovery. We thank you all tremendously for your donations, please don't hesitate to spread our story. God bless.
