To our family and friends. To our neighbours and community. To Christopher's class mates and school district  please help. Some know, but most are unaware of what has been going on. Christopher is our 5 year old autistic son who has just gone through so much pain and a traumatic experience.

Christopher had contracted necrotizing fasciitis also known as a flesh eating disorder in his left leg.27635586_15182366040_r.jpeg27635586_15182365620_r.jpeg27635586_15182365840_r.jpeg

He has lost the largest part of his calf muscle (gastrocnemius) as well as part of his hamstring.


He has had to receive a blood transfusion as well as a feeding tube to help out with his eating. He has been fitted with a wound vac to help with healing. Chistopher still has his leg and even more importantly he is alive and starting to recover.27635586_15182368530_r.jpeg27635586_15182367970_r.jpegHis leg is missing some parts of skin and may have to get a skin graph, time will tell. He has a semi permant IV to make sure that after he is able to leave the hospital he will still be able to receive the antibiotics. As well as while we're in the hospital he'll stop ripping out the temporary IVs. The hardest part of this experience has been that Christopher just doesn't understand why.

Christophers older brother is with his grandparents at our home, trying to go to school and remain optimistic about his little brother. Our family and friends have been saints to us. Taking care of our house and animals. 27635586_15182372330_r.jpeg(home made dinner from a friend)
They have been helping us take care of us, while we take care of Christopher.

What we are asking for is help with the medical expenses. He has been in the hospital at Doernbechers for the last 9 days. He has had 5 surgeries already with at least another 2 to go, probably more. His mother and I have been at his side day and night through this process. We know that he will have a very long road of physical therapy as well as occupational therapy ahead.

The cost at this point is unknown but we are concerned about it. We are trying to raise money to help pay these expenses. 

Thank you again for any and all support. God bless.

The update that no one wants to see. Or at least no one's wallet wants to see. Well over 200,000 in medical bills as of right now. We know that a large part will be covered by insurance but we don't fully know how much. This will also still cost in copaymetns as well as therapy costs. We will do whatever we need to and it is what it is. Any assistance helping us would be appreciated very much.

So surgery number 7 is over. The healing process is continuing. The open areas of flesh are closing a little at a time. He will be receiving a skin graph on Friday which will be surgery number 8. We just want to take our son home. The infection is still all clear at this point. The added expenses being here continue to mount. We are encouraged by the surgeon who said we might be able to head home on Saturday. The surgery road is almost over and the physical therapy as well as occupational therapy road will continue. This has been an extremely tuff
Right after number 7.
