Welcome to Team Knox ♥️ Knox Strong! Matt and Chelsea welcomed their sweet twin boys to the world on January 9, 2018! Their 5 year old daughter Penny became a big sister! Colt weighed 5lbs 15 Oz and Knox weighed 6lbs 7.9 Oz. After delivery, Knox was immediately taken from Chelsea and Matt to be hooked up to an IV to keep blood flowing to his lungs.
Knox’s story began on October 10th, when they sent the family to Hurley after a regular growth scan and found out Baby B's Heart wasn't developing like it was supposed to. On October 26th, they were sent to U of M for a second opinion. They determined he'd be born with a Hypoplastic Right Heart & possibly a few other "minor" issues. Chelsea spent hours in Ultrasounds and talking with Cardiologists, to make sure everything stayed on track.
Chelsea and Colt were released to the Ronald McDonald house while Knox had to stay in the hospital. He has already faced several up and down’s with his condition. He is on medications and machines that are keeping his heart working properly. As of now he had surgery if it’s successful he should be good to go and only require one other surgery in the future. If this doesn’t work they are back to square one which will mean they have to open his chest and he will require 3 surgeries.
Matt, Chelsea and the boys are in Ann Arbor while Penny is staying near home due to school. Trips back and forth, gas, food, Mom and Dad being off work really adds up!! We wanted to help in some way because they would help anyone that was in need of rolls were reversed. We will be selling t-shirts as well as taking donations of cash/PayPal/gas gift cards/food gift cards! We will also be offering a few other items for sale soon as well.
Thank you all so much for the support!https://m.facebook.com/groups/1926222647695464#CHD #TeamKnox #Knoxstrong #CHDwarrior #congenitalheartdefect #uofmannarbor
