Not long after birth Dash started having complications with breathing. His lungs were particallly collapsing. He was then transferred to Theda Clark to provide him with better care. Later on they found a concern with his heart.
He was then airlifted to Children's Hospital of Milwaukee and needed to have open heart surgery due to a blockage. While doing the surgery, his amazing medical team determined that Dash had a congenital heart defect. TAPVR or Total Anomilous Pulmonary Venous Return is the name of his condition.
Since his surgery Dash has been working very hard on his road to recovery. It has been a bit of a rollercoaster but he has made great gains and is so incredibly strong.
Knowing that the road may be a long one we would like to help cover some of the Oehlke' s medical costs. We would like their focus and concern to be on their bundle of joy. Let's come together to help one truley wonderful family bring their baby boy home! Any contribution would be greatly appreciated and please continue your positive thoughts and prayers!
