Help for Jacob and his family

Little Jacob has been a very sick little boy in 2017.  He had a tonsillectomy in January with complications which required a second admission to the hospital.  He was very sick for a while before finally getting better. He was in and out of the doctor's office with more tests and labwork numerous times.  And now, Jacob, is recovering from what they thought was a stomach virus.  On Thursday, November 2, 2017 he was taken to the ER from Urgent Care for dehydration where the hospital was unable to control his vomiting.  The hospital then had him transferred via the Children's ambulance to USA Children's and Women's Hospital to be admitted.  After several IV sticks and lab sticks and tests, they discovered Jacob had an ileus and an area of bleeding in his colon.  He was severely dehydrated and was unable to keep down any food or drink.  The worst part was Jacob being in severe pain and screaming because of it as his parents, Angie and Scott, watched him helplessly.  After yet another procedure, there was finally a breathrough and there was an order placed for a regimen of medications to help Jacob.  He finally was discharged after 6 full nights in the hospital.
The family does have medical insurance, but the medical bills have piled up with out of pocket expenses due to Jacob's tonsillectomy, complications and readamission for 3 days due to those, and now this admission including an ambulance ride and several tests and procedures.  Also, Jacob's sister, Devon had a benign tumor surgically removed in April.  Then, to top it all off, Scott, Jacob's dad, had shoulder surgery in May and was just released to return to work today, November 8, 2017. Angie and Scott are both very hard workers and loyal to their employees, but have had a lot happen this year, which has been out of their control.  
In saying all of this, this family could use our help with medical bills, especially with Christmas coming up.
