Help for Baby Hendrix

Hendrix Imogen Watson was born July 29th. She appeared to be a very healthy, beautiful baby girl. But shortly after her birth she began to show signs of poor oxygenation. She was rushed away for emergency care and within a short time life saving procedures were being performed. She was transferred to Children's Hospital for further evaluation and treatment. It was discovered that she had a congenital heart defect called Hypoplastic Right Heart Syndrome. Little Hendrix had surgery on her heart on Friday August 1st in hopes of getting her valve open and for the ventricle to open up and work to pump her blood to her lungs. The procedure helped to open the valve but she continued to have problems. She had a second surgery Aug 6th to place stints to keep an artery open that normally closes after birth and let's more blood flow to the lungs for oxygenation. The hope is that her heart will begin to function more on its own. If not, she will have a bypass shunt placed in her heart.

The young parents are living on one income, and have only one vehicle. Hendrix has a 2 year old adorable sister Amilee. Thankfully they do have insurance, but with missed work, the expense of gas traveling to and from the hospital & food, and other medical expenses they may be facing, it will be a struggle for them. Many family members are helping them as much as they can by caring for Amilee and other expenses coming up daily, but can only help with a small portion of the expenses. We are unsure at this point how much of the medical expenses they will be responsible for.

We understand this will be a very long process and we are praying that little Hendrix's heart will start to show progress and she will not have to have the shunts or an eventual transplant. Thank you for the many prayers. Please continue to pray for this precious baby.
