I'm Nash Griswold I was born back in April. I've had a hard time breathing and feeding since birth and I was misdiagnosed when I was 7 weeks old. My mommy and daddy had to put me through nebulizer treatments every 4 hours for 4 weeks only to find out afterword that it was complicating my illness.
I've been through a lot and the doctors are working hard to figure out why my food is ending up in my lungs. My body doesnt know how to swallow and no one is exactly sure why.
I've been in the hospital for two weeks and I'm now in ICU for the second time because I couldn't breathe and my pulse raced and my blood oxygen levels dropped.
I have a feeding tube in my intestines and my reflux is burning me.
I'm really happy and playful untill my sickness hurts me. The doctors keep saying Im failure to thrive and I have no muscles. It scares my mommy and daddy.
Soon my doctors will be ready to perform a series of surgeries to help me get better but I dont know when I will be healthy enough to go home.
My Mommy and Daddy have been taking extra special care of my two toddler brothers, Jaxon, Colton, and I through this unfortunate experience.
It is hard for my Mommy and Daddy to find time to work and earn to make ends meet while caring for my brothers and I through this trying time.
Please help my mommy and daddy so they can continue to stay at the hospital with me every day and help me get better until they will be able to get back to the daily grind which they so dearly miss.
