Carter Brinkman's surgeries

After having two miscarriges my girlfriend of 8 years and I finally had a baby boy. Carter John Brinkman was born on September 15, 2014, on September 17th he was transported via life flight to Childrens Memorial Hermann for emergency surgery. Carter was born with an imperforated anus which needs three surgeries to correct, we have made it through one but still have two to go. 

Carter has mounting medical bills along with needed supplies, some of which  insurance doesn't cover.  The insurance company claims this surgery is not an emergency, basically saying Carter could live the rest of his life with a colostomy. Which means we will be paying the copay out of pocket along with our normal bills. I am currently the only one working as a daycare will not take care of him, saying he is a special needs kid.  We are trying to get a little help and don't know where else to turn, our family is helping out but we are getting to a point where things are getting overwhelming. Carters second surgery is going to be some time in February and we could really use the help.
