Shortly after our return home at the end of July, Asher started getting kidney infections.. We found out the surgery was not successful and they will have to reconstruct the bladder again in May/June 2018, along with work to his kidneys and more physical reconstruction of his abdomen . After a visit in August, they scheduled his second surgery that was September 14th, 2017. This was for a dual hernia repair where his intestines were in his groin and facing permenant damage. At the same appointment in August, our doctors found 4 stones in his left kidney and 6 stones in his right.
We are still constantly learning more about his condition, everything he is at a higher risk for and how this is a lifelong journey. CHOP has been absolutely amazing during all of this, flying in doctors from around the country for his surgeries. We will both admit that this was hard from the beginning, but we are truly blessed to have Asher in our lives, have an amazing team of doctors always with us, and all of the support from our friends and family through all of this. Without the doctors, friends, and family, this entire process would be much more difficult.
So after all of this, we are trying to prepare for the upcoming surgery and bills associated with that. We are asking for any donations possible, as it would mean a world of difference to us. We both understand that sometimes this is simply not possible, so we would also glady accept prayers as well. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you. Baby Asher, Cyndi & Matt
