Prayers for Phoenix McLeod

Hello. My name is Tanya Crane and I am the Auntie to an awesome little kiddo. His name is Phoenix Vincent McLeod. He will be turning 1 on January 18, 2016. He went to the doctor in Fox Creek on January5, 2016 and was diagnosed with bronchitis. He later got worse and was taken into emergency on January 7, 2016. While he in there, it was decided he needed to head to Edmonton by ambulance. They prepped him for his journey by setting up IV's, a breathing machine, a catheter and sedated him. Upon arriving at the Stollery, it was decided it was in his best interest to remain sedated. Since he has been there he has had two bad turns. The worse case scenarios are now in place in a matter of hours. Phoenix had to be put on a different breathing machine, 4 IV's, a catheter, a machine that is taking his blood from his heart and running it through a carbon filter and back in. This is doing the job of his lungs so they can have a much needed rest. He is on meds to keep him paralyzed and in doing so his vitals improved.  Phoenix has a long journey to recovery and his odds of pulling through are not what we like to hear...just over 50%..
   On this journey, his parents, Dara McLeod and Andy Yule, would like to stay by his side but due to lack of funds...they may have to leave him in Edmonton. I have their daughter, Helena, 5, with me so they don't have that worry. All funds raised will go to accommodation, food and bills, if need be. Anything left over will be donated to the Stollery in Phoenix's name.
   Our family would be so grateful for your help. This little guy always puts a smile on your face and makes you giggle! Please help us take the load of worry off of Dara and Andy, so they can concentrate on baby Phoenix!!
