On Emerick’s 2nd day of life he was diagnosed with a few different Congenital Heart Defects
which include a Large VSD, PFO, and PDA
as well as a possible Bicuspid Aortic Valve.
An easy way to understand it is Emerick has 3 large holes in is heart, making it difficult for his little body to function properly. He gets very sweaty, out of breath and tires very easily which is making it difficult for him to gain weight and grow properly.
At our last doctors appointment we were told that Emerick is now in Congestive Heart Failure.
Results on Emerick's Echocardiogram showed that the left side of his heart is significantly enlarged due to the amount of blood shunting across the heart through the holes.
The cardiologist informed us that Emerick will need to have Open Heart Surgery
which has been scheduled for this January.
His surgery will require a minimum week long stay in the PICU at Rocky Mountain Children’s Hospital in Denver.Our goal is to raise $20,000
We understand that you may see this and not be in the position to give financially.
Our family is incredibly thankful for any and all contributions, whether it be prayer, good thoughts, expressions of support, or a financial contribution to support our little Emerick.
Another way friends and family can help is to pay it forward to help this campaign get viewed by sending emails, twitter or sharing with friends and family on Facebook.
No contribution is too small. With every donation you will be helping baby Emerick's heart beat strong and be a big part of his success story.
With much gratitude and love,
The Spellman Family
