Baby Jackson's Medical Help

Jackson was born October 7, 2015 and looked to be a normal, healthy baby boy. Soon after birth Jack was rushed to UH's Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital to have emergency surgery on his genitals for an abnormality. Before we knew it, it was confirmed that he was born with three separate heart defects: a coarch of the aorta, a hole in the upper portion of his heart (ASD) and a very large hole at the bottom of his heart (VSD). At 9 days old, Jackson went under the knife for his second surgery to repair his aorta. While Jackson toughed out the surgery and was quickly released from the hospital after a very long 12 day stay, we were quickly bombarded with the constant flow of medical bills.
Being in the food industry, I took the minimum 6 weeks of maternity leave. Unfortunately those six weeks were unpaid, expect for the small amount of vacation time I had to use. I'm a proud person, I always have been. I hate to ask for help, especially after we have exhausted our families with help from our wedding this past summer. But my husband and I just don't know what to do. We have completely blown through all of our savings and have unsuccessfully tried numerous times to make payment plans with both hospitals that we can afford. Any amount would mean the world to us.
