Spencer had a foreign body (swallowed a long time ago and now eroded) pass through but making a hole through his trachea, esophogus and aorta. During a 3 hour surgery, Drs were able to get aorta sealed and trachea stitched as best as possible. Part of his esophogus is missing so he will have a bag outside his neck for a feeding tube.
The last few days have been a roller coaster for the entire family. Spencer stopped breathing more than once, had numerous blood transfusions and is barely out of surgery. His Dr. says '1 out of 99 to survive the surgery and the first 48 hours. The next few days are crucial and recovery will be long. But he is a stong little boy.' Spencer is expected to be in the hospital for a few months.
Spencer is surrounded by so much love. His parents are exhausted, scared and amazing in their fight for their sons life.
Of course their sweet lil family did not see this coming! They just moved into a new place & things were settling nicely.
Alicia just got her dream job as a scientist & will have to take time off (probably a few months) to be with her baby. She need to be with him & he needs his mama.
This GoFundMe is set up for them to help ease the stress financially so they are able to be present for Spencer.
