Helping Georgie

My autistic son Georgie desperately needs help. Two years ago he started aggressively hitting himself, we tried many medications for his aggression and to calm him but nothing worked. In October I brought him three times to the hospital for his aggressive behaviors and we found out he has chronic sinusitis was put on antibiotics. He did not improve so I brought him back to the children's hospital. After many tests we found out he has a brain tumor. We think that the tumor is causing him severe pain and because of his autism he doesn't know how to deal with it so he hits his face and head hoping the pain will stop. He is scheduled surgery for January 12 but the pain is excessive the doctors have to give him morphine Ativan Valium and norco to calm him and help with the the pain he has. He also has to be restrained so that he does not hit himself. we are currently in the hospital because he hit his face so badly that his left eye was infected and they had to operate on it to drain the pus so he wouldn't lose his eye/sight. Because of the infection we are now waiting for him to have the surgery to remove the tumor. a My husband has since had to stop t work to take care of our two other small children. My family needs help during this very stressful and sad time. we also need to build a sensory room in our home for our son so that when he's out and recovered he has a special room to help with his sensory processing disorder and can learn other was to deal with his pain and sensory problems instead of hurting himself. It will also be used for his therapy session as well. Please help our family and donate and share. Even $1 helps my son. Thank you.  https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/24OE5H1ROVCMW
