Hi everyone!

Today is my sister Irene's birthday! They have spent the last week at OHSU Doernbecher because Atticus got his limb salvage surgery!

It went well and Atticus is recovering really well. It was tough the first few days, but he's ready to go home - on his mom's birthday! Happy Birthday, Irene!

Please send Irene a little gift to add to this GoFundMe as she has no income right now and takes such good care of her kids, especially during this very trying time, and taking care of Atticus is more than it's own full time job!

If you can't give at this time, please share all over your social media and say Happy Birthday to Irene!

Atticus and Irene went to the clinic the other day because Atticus was getting a fever. They took labs and he was still neutropenic and had low blood counts, and was going into failure to thrive. They decided to admit him into the hospital for a blood transfusion and to start IV nutrition, because he keeps vomiting up his feed tube.

Please keep remembering to give, every little bit helps Irene and her kids pay rent and all of their living expenses while she is unemployed. Keep sharing via your email contacts and social medias! You all rock! Thanks for keeping my nephew in your hearts and holding on to hope for them.
