Odin's Gastrochisis Journey

June 19th, 2017 Odin Michael White was born at Ohio State University Hospital with a birth defect known as "Gastrochisis". Gastrochisis is a defect in the closure of the belly causing the intestines to be exposed. With his situation he had the large and small intestines exposed. The surgeons decided on going with the "silo" procedure. The silo is a tall plastic container that the intestines are placed in and its positioned over the opening of the abdomen. Over several days or weeks, the surgeon will gradually tighten the silo. 
With us being in the NICU for 3 weeks and being home for almost 2 weeks. Hospital bills are piling up. Odins appointments are lining up. Grant isn't able to help out or go to appointments because we can't afford him to miss anymore days off work. He used all his personal days the 1st week we were in the NICU.
We are opening up our hearts and asking for help. Any money that can be raised will chip off some stress and worry from our already heavy shoulders. We greatly appreciate ANY AMOUNT. Please know that NO amount is too small. NO thought is too brief. NO prayer is too short. We set our goal to $1 cause ANY amount will help.
Thank you so much for donating and feel free to share.
-Love The Whites
