Baby Nolan’s Medical Expense Fund
Baby Nolan Christopher Robles made his unexpected arrival on June 22nd, 2017 at 7:11am measuring 6lbs 7oz and 19.5in. Overall, he is a happy-go-lucky baby boy, but had a few complications that landed him in the NICU for the first two weeks of his life.
Nolan snuggled with his momma right after birth for a few minutes before routine baby checks began. During his exam, an Imperforate Anus was discovered as well as a few other malformations of the kidneys and urinary tract.
After much research, the family found that Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio was known for its world renown anorectal malformation clinic. This clinic specializes in the care that Nolan would essentially need.
To date, a total of three surgeries have been done to correct the Imperforate Anus (IA):
Nolan's first surgery took place within 48 hours of his birth, which involved creating a colostomy since his stool essentially had no exit.
Nolan’s second surgery, on October 27th, created his anal opening.
Nolan's third surgery (and God-willing last surgery) recently took place on December 18th. This surgery reversed and closed Nolan’s colostomy, which will enable him to stool normally out of his new anal opening.
So far, each procedure has proved to be successful; however, it is to be determined the severity of long-term effects, which will likely include bowel management difficulties (i.e. constipation or issues of incontinence).
Nolan will continue to need future medical care, but this continued care will hopefully begin to slow down as Nolan approaches middle-school age. Until then, the family will continue to follow-up with Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, OH as Nolan's conditions progress.
As a loving family member, I started this Go-Fund-Me account to help them with all the medical expenses they are incurring. In times like this, money is the last thing one needs thinks about, but unfortunately, it's a reality - so I'm here to help as much as I can. I pray we will be able to help my sister and her family as well as lift them up with all our LOVE & PRAYERS!
