Pray for Gage

https://www.facebook.com/PrayersForGageVass
When I was only 18 weeks into my pregnancy we were told that our baby boy would be born with a condition called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. HLHS is a condition when the left ventricle of the heart is underdeveloped and doesn't function properly. At 9 days old our son Gage had the first of 3 heart surgeries, called Norwood, to reconstruct his heart and re-route his blood flow to his lungs so he can sustain life without the left ventricle of his heart until he was able to grow enough for the 2nd procedure. Due to his rapid growth the 2nd surgery called Bi-directional Glenn was done at 4 months and now it's time for the 3rd procedure called Fontan where they will complete the transition for him to only have a single ventricle heart. From what we have learned there are many complications to come after this procedure only to lead to a heart tranplant later. Recently we have learned of a fairly new procedure only done in Boston, Ma called Bi-Ventricular Repair, doing this they will force bloodflow into the left side of his heart, overtime causing it to grow which will allow them to reverse everything that has been done and give him a WHOLE heart again, taking away the future complications and need for a transplant giving him the chance for a better quality of life in the future. With this being said, we don't live in Boston and Gage's disability insurance will not pay out of state therefore we will have to pay out of pocket for the trip expenses, medical bills and our regular monthly bills while we are both out of work for the 3 weeks that we will be out of work while we wait by our sons bedside. We are told that very few HLHS patients are cadidates for this procedure so I feel this is the answer to our many prayers. I've never much liked asking for help but I will do anything for the well-being of our son so anything you can spare is greatly appreciated. Thank you and God Bless.
