Hey there! My name is Cash Lucas. I was born on February 4, 2014. I joined the coolest, bestest set of parents 4 weeks early. Man, were they so in love with me when they saw me, and I in love with them too! My mom was super sad the first day I got here because she couldn't see me because they said my lungs weren't taking deep enough breaths for their liking. She herself was trying to get better after the surgery to take me out. BUT my daddy was able to come take pics of my little face and take to mom so she could see. I was able to come off of my oxygen cannula, but only for a short time. The doctors put me back on it because they said my long little legs and feet weren't getting enough oxygen in the blood.
Next thing I know, I am getting a whole new room at a special hospital called MUSC. They say I'm going to have to have heart surgery because there's a problem with a narrowing in my aorta that is hindering my lower body from getting proper circulation. They are running all kinds of tests. My head and kidney ultrasounds went great (aortic coarctation can cause defects in the renal vessels etc) but everything is perfect and in working order. So all we have to focus on is getting my sweet heart in ship shape. While I am being cared for by all the awesome nurses and doctors at MUSC, my mommy and daddy are having to stay in a hotel room away from me. I wish they could have stayed in the fun place where Ronald McDonald is, but that is booked solid for 3 weeks! So that means my mommy and daddy, in order to be close to me, have to pay for a hotel room and all that stuff you older people eat. I love them so much and it makes me feel so much better when they come to see me. I like having them so close to me. The doctors say that I'll be here for 2-3 weeks (best case scenario)...that could get expensive. So it would be so super awesome if you or anyone you know could help us out. Even the smallest amount could help! Thank you so much for thinking of me and my SUPER AWESOME mommy and daddy! Even prayers are a way to help too!
