Our son Nick is in the hospital

Our son Nickolas is in the hospital he suffers from tracomalicia and his breathing is going down hill. Monday morning he became lethargic and fussy and by that evening he had stopped taking bottles we went to the pediatrician Tuesday morning and his chest fell in the office and he had no gag reflex the pediatrician immediately called the ambulance. We arrived at er and he has had every blood test and MRI, CT scan, EEG, ultrasound, and multiple x Ray's. He has a cyst on his brain and has been put on a feeding tube and now he is unfortunately on a ventilator. All signs and all ideas point to botchulisim but unfortunately they aren't very sure. He is set to start treatment from tonight or the morning depending on when the medicine arrives. The cdc is involved as well as the health department and gatekeepers in california. They have already checked the house for spores. However the estimated time until he is recovered after medicine is minimum 3 weeks. In order for me to stay with him and my son's father stay with our older son he cannot work and we unfortunately can't pay our bills without him working hence our go fund me. I don't like doing this but anything, ANYTHING helps. Please find it in your hearts to help us because I'm at a loss and in tears, I don't know how we are going to get through this. Please let me and Conor stay with our sons. Mac and Nick.
