Baby Jace - Heart Surgery Fund

Baby Jace was born on February 5th, 2017, weighed 7 lbs. 11oz. and was 20.25 inches long.  Melting the hearts of his parents, James and Holly, and family and friends, Jace personified the miracle of the beauty of life.  For all of his little life thus far, he has been cuddled, loved, and adored....all the while unaware that his heart was not formed properly and needs immediate intervention.
On the evening of February 16th, something wasn't right with Baby Jace, he was turning blue, and he didn't even have the strength to cry.  His vigilant parents rushed him to the hospital where he was immediately taken to the NICU,  had to be sedated and diagnosed quickly.  A team of doctors have determined that he has several very severe heart conditions that require open-heart surgery within the next few days.  He needs to have surgery as soon as possible, however his tiny body, with oxygen-deprived organs, cannot handle the intervention until he is stabilzed for a few more days. At this time, he is sedated to reduce stress on the body, he has medical equipment providing oxygen into the bloodstream since his heart cannot do this.  His diagnoses include interrupted aortic arch, transposition of the great arteries (the pulmonary and aortic arteries are reversed), a large septal defect (hole) between the ventricles.  These conditions require imminent surgeries, including an aortic arch repair, artery switch repair, and ventricular septal defect closure.  The lead cardiologist called this "medical documentary-worthy".  They have rarely seen a baby with this many serious heart conditions, all requiring open-heart surgery, which may not be able to all be done at once.James and Holly will need help to pay for the extensive medical bills they will incur to save Baby Jace's life, and to help pay for them to stay near the hospital as they live hours away.  The contributions made to this Go Fund Me page for Baby Jace will be greatly appreciated more than can be expressed.
