help mateo get the care he needs!

mateo was one born on oct 13 2013 and was a twin. we lost one of the twins earlier in pregnancy so we were watchin him closely.. at 36 weeks they wanted to induce me because of iugr. he was born at 5 ibs 5 oz and cute as a button:):) at 14 days old we had to be flown down to denver to do emergency surgery on his leg. they discovered he had septic arthritis and would lose his leg and his life if we didn't do surgery right away... we were amazed when the doc came out and said they have saved his leg:) we then got a picc line in and started our 6 week treatment. we spent most of the time in denver at the childrens hospital and the rest back home at the hospital here.. we are now home with our baby but have to return to denver often to see doctors. there is no specialist here that can treat him. he has slow blood flow from his heart which makes his condition worse so we hope and pray the infection doesn't return. we are having a hard time getting back and forth from doctors because we have to fly and it is very expensive. also havin only one car in our family that my husband uses to get to and from his two jobs leaving me without a way to take the baby to doctor appt or in case of emergency without calling a friend or family member to get us. so we are asking for help in any way you can!! we appreciate it more than you know and continued prayers would be amazing for healing and comfort for my baby!!!
