Ocyus' Open Heart Surgery

Ocyus has Sticklers Syndrome and had a rough start to life. He has had five surgeries all within a year and a half old. You wouldn't know it was such a rough road if you saw him today. A couple weeks a go he went for his yearly heart check and it was then we found out he would need surgery asap. His valve in his left ventricle is not working and the hole in his heart has gotten to big. We found out about a week ago that it will for sure be open heart surgery. Our son is our number on priority but unfortunately it does not mean bills stop coming in so mommy and daddy can just not work during this very critical time. We have done a gofundme page for Ocyus to help with finances of going to Doernbechers Children Hospital over the mountain, missed work that we do not have vacation time to cover, meals and lodging during the stay in Portland, and anything else Ocyus may need.
