Hello Family & Friends of Cathy & Tine Hidalgo!!!

Let's send some Massive Love and Support to the Hidalgo Family while they are waiting for their youngest son Carson to recover from surgery.

As we all know, Cathy and Constantine Hidalgo always give 110% of themselves to others, but never ask or accept help for themselves. 

This past January, Cathy gave birth to their second son Carson prematurely at 33 weeks. In utero, Carson was diagnosed with Down Syndrome. In addition to his almost 3 month stay in the NICU, Carson was also born with a heart defect that doctors had hoped would close on its own. Last week, it was discovered the heart defect was not closing and causing several heart problems for Carson and he had to have emergency heart surgery.

Carson is having a smooth recovery in the hospital, but Cathy and Tine could use some support as they try to manage Carson, their lives and their oldest son, Colin. Colin was recently medically diagnosed with Autism and requires special care and several therapies.

As Cathy and Tine begin to take on caring for two boys with special needs, we wanted to help send them all the love and support they need to make their lives easier! Any kind of help would be appreciated, and it would all go to helping with the boys’ medical costs, and food/items that the family needs. Thank you all for your generous support!

LET'S LIFT THIS AWESOME FAMILY'S SPIRIT! 

Nothing but LOVE for the Hidalgo Family!!!!

**Sharing this update with everyone who's contributed to this loving family's campaign**

It was a very tough transition to home care... but we survived Carson's first 3 weeks home post op.

We are at a loss for words as to what our closest family and friends have done for us these past weeks, during hospitalization and after. We are so humbled by EVERYONE'S generosity, support, love and prayers for our beautiful strong baby boy. Through 4 years of attempting to conceive with 2 pregnancy losses before Colin, and then 2 extremely high risk pregnancies and complicated deliveries, along with both of their special needs, I truly believe in the power of prayer. Our two boys are a testament to that.

I never imagined my life as it is right now, but Tine and I would not have become as strong as we are now without all of you. We don't even know where to begin to show our appreciation. Big or small, each one of your efforts has touched our family in a way that will be with us forever. Because of you we can solely focus on the needs of both our boys. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Carson, Colin, Cathy and Tine Hidalgo

**Wanted to share in the update section in case anyone missed this amazing comment**

We are excited to update everyone that Carson was discharged on Saturday and is recovering at home. He made it home to celebrate Cathy's birthday and was welcomed by our amazing family. The transition to home care has been less than ideal but he is expected to make a full recovery within 8 weeks. While we are anxious that we are providing the same level of care our exceptional nurses and doctors provided at Advocate Children's Hospital, our anxiety from the medical expenses has been lessened tremendously. We owe this all to our friends, family, and all of you that have contributed to this fund. We especially wanted to thank Maripaz and Emilee on taking the initiative to set this up as we certainly would not have. We are typically private with our personal lives but now realize there is joy in sharing our experiences (good and bad) with all of you.

Thank you again for your kindness and generosity! The Hidalgo family

Hello friends and family. We are overwhelmed with the love from all of you. Hearing all the kinds words, prayers, and seeing the donations has literally brought us both to tears. While it has been difficult lately, you are all helping to keep us positive and energized. We can’t thank you enough for your generosity. We hope to see as many of you as we can after Carson recovers.

Quick update: Carson is making a quick recovery and we may get to take him home sooner than expected. He is having a hard time eating but his breathing has improved greatly. He even managed a few smiles while flirting with the nurses.

Thank you, we love you all!

Tine and Cathy
