Saving Onyx

Hi I'm currently 35 weeks pregnant with a little boy who has been diagnosed with severe left Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia. 

His diaphragm has a hole allowing his organs to push up into his chest; causing his left lung to be small and not able to grow. Since his organs are pushed into his chest, his heart is pushing to the right, which is pushing against his right lung causing it to not grow properly as well.  

Until he is born, I am having to go to the doctor every week to check on his progress. Our son (Onyx) will be immediately taken as soon as he is born to start the process of helping him breathe and hopefully be stable enough to have surgery. He has a 50/50 chance of surviving.  

I am someone who usually tries to handle everything on my own, but this is more over whelming than imaginable. All donations will go towards everything related to this situation. 

Any and everything, even just prayers, is greatly appreciated!
