Meet little Carson Brien Cameron Grant. He was born on July 11, 2017 at 2:05 pm weighing in at 8lbs 11oz and is the 4th born child of Tiffany and Cameron Grant (Brother of Robert, Fynn and Violet). Unfortunately he has not been doing well since his birthday. He was transferred to Toronto Sick Kids only hours after being born. Since being transferred his prognosis has been poor. He is fighting for his life with every breath he takes.
When he was born, the left side of his heart was not functioning properly so he was given a drug to improve the blood flow. They discovered there was a large clot which was partially dissolved with a mixture of special medications. Unfortunately the damage to left side of the heart is too extensive to recover from and a piece of the clott broke off and floated to Carson's brain causing a moderate stroke. The typical treatment for this kind of damage to the heart is a transplant but unfortunately with his clotting problem and instability he is not a candidate at this time. 4 days ago his parents were told he would not survive the night- Carson has been defying odds since day 1.
The clot that broke off into the brain has been causing seizures. He is waiting for a consultation from a team of neurologists.
Some good news- the team was able to remove his catheter and he is now peeing in the diaper (yay kidneys!). They are also now able to feed him through a feeding tube. They are also starting to ween him off some of the medications and hope to keep him stable enough to remove the breathing tube.
I have set up this page for Carson and his family to help with the additional costs associated with having a sick child far from home. The money raised will help with accomodations and food in Toronto, and other living costs back home since both parents are obviously not working at this time. We have to remember that there are 3 other children that miss there parents dearly. Many of Tiffany and Cameron's family and friends have been helping out in anyway they can with babysitting and transportation. Robert, Fynn and Violet need some love so I ask that you please contact the family if you would like to spend some time with them or babysit.
I will post updates as I get them. Please share the hell out of this campaign. If you have cards you would like to send please message me and I will ensure they get them.
