Today at 4:34pm Baby Gray Coded and had CPR preformed for 30 minutes. Now he is on a ventilator called ECMO. They are making his Heart and Lungs work. He will continue on this machine for the next 48 hours. Then they will try and take him off and see how he does. Please show your love and support to Charles, Courtney and all their children as they go through this rough time.
Baby Grayson will have his first Heart surgery Monday December 9th. Please continue to pray for him and his parents as they are patiently waiting for his first surgery to be complete. His expected recovery time is about 2 weeks.
The Allen's need your help in what should be the happiest time of their lives. Courtney and Charles are expecting their first child together December 10th. Sadly the doctors have discovered that baby Gray had a Heart defect that will eventually lead to numerous surgeries and hospitalizations. Please let's help our friends and their growing family in this time of need. Here is the rundown and diagnosis of his situation straight from his Sweet Mommy Courtney:
Grayson's diagnosis: Large Ventricular Septal Defect & Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. His left ventricle has not developed and the doctors are concerned that when he is born, it will not function properly and he will have to under go open heart surgery to re-route his heart to become a single ventricular heart. This is called the Norwood Procedure & is a 3 surgery series. They are preparing us for a 4-6 week stay in the hospital in Dallas & also would prefer me to be in Dallas by 37-38 weeks in case I go into labor.... So I will be close to the team there. There will be many trips made by Charles & I back and forth to Dallas before and after his birth. The surgeons and cardiologist will monitor him for 3-7 days to decide which route is best for Grayson... Which surgery. He will be in the Congenital Heart Unit at Dallas' Medical City Children's hospital.
