On December 4, 2012, when Hawk was only 3 weeks old, he sustained a massive spontaneous brain hemorrhage. Hawk is our only child, a product of many prayers and the miracle of In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF). Since that horrible day when he was life flighted to Egleston Children's hospital he has had six brain surgeries, 4 shunt revisions, infection in his Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF), multiple blood clots, and has spent over 100 days in the hospital. Praise the Lord Hawk is now home and getting better every day. This life altering tragedy has left us with many expenses we never imagined and the uncertainty of not knowing when these elevated expenses will end. We are raising money for Hawk to attain the many things needed to give him the best chance to meet his full potential. A ramp to enter the house on wheels, helmet to aid in the correct formation of his head, an addition to our home for Hawk to have a bedroom directly adjacent to ours, a handicap accessible bathroom, a therapy room and equipment, a garage for protection from the elements when we take him places, private duty nursing when I have to go back to work, medical bills, and the out of pocket expenses related to Hawk's needs are just a few of the reasons for this fundraiser. I am sure unforeseen reasons will be added to this list as we continue down this road. We are not sure what his needs will be as he grows but we know there will be special things that will make his quality of life better and that the medical bills will continue coming. This goal is our short term goal for the things he needs right now. However, we can't even begin to estimate a long term goal given he is so young and we don't know the extent of his limitations. Your prayers are greatly appreciated and if you feel led, please donate to Hawk. You can read his full story, current updates and see many handsome photos on his Facebook page, DoItForHawk
