Support for Baby Jonas

Baby Jonas was born a beautiful 6lb 13oz bundle of joy in the wee hours of December 2nd, 2014! Mommy and Daddy were ecstatic to welcome their first baby into the world. Unfortunately, not even 48 hours old, Mr. Jonas was showing signs of trouble; he was not eating and was continuously throwing up the little bit he did manage to eat. He was quickly flown to Dallas Children's Hospital where testing is being performed. He may have a disease known as Hershprungs which would require a surgery to remove part of his intestines. If not he still may require the same surgery to fix his intestines to be able to digest properly. Unfortunately, the family lives 2 hours away, so trips back and forth and extended stays at the hospital while not working is taking a toll on savings. Not to mention, insurance didn't cover part of labor and delivery costs. Baby Jonas did just have his repoggle taken out (the thing sucking out the amniotic fluid in his tummy) and was replaced by a feeding tube! Finally the little man is getting food! His little mouth has been suckling hard so I'm sure he's been starving and hasn't been able to get food basically since he was born (besides the two five minute feedings he had after birth). So we are seeing signs of progress, but are still awaiting testing results and probably surgery to permanently fix the problem. Any help for this beautiful little family is appreciated beyond comprehension. We just want to be able to welcome baby Jonas to his HOME as soon as possible! :)
