Hope For Khorey

$7,015 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 111 people in 7 months
Hi everyone! I always get messages and questions concerning Khorey and what happened and I truly felt discouraged, fear, helplessness, and heartache each time I tried to explain what happened but now I have come to terms that my son Khorey is a blessing and although he has a long battle ahead of him, my husband and I will be here no matter what making sure he is ok every step of the way....I had a healthy pregnancy and seems like everything was normal with my delivery on June 30, 2018 at 2:05 pm ....After giving birth to a healthy 6lbs 8oz baby we were moved to a regular room for me and baby to get rest. After visit from my family I put my son Khorey in his bassinet kissed him goodnight and went to sleep at 11:30pm. At 12:11 am the nurse came in to check vitals and it was time for Khorey's feeding ....At that moment my worst nightmare happen, I discovered that my son was not breathing..I carried his lifeless body to the nurses station to ask for help...Code Blue rang all throughout the hopital while nurses and doctors ran into our room..He had to be rescuitated and til this day we don't know how long he was down or what caused him to stop breathing.....What we do know is he suffered a severe anoxic brain injury....He was diagnosed with Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy. For the first 3 days of life he was having seizures and was put into a medical coma to stop the seizures...He was also intubated/ventilator for the first 2 weeks....he was transferred from Women's and Children Hospital Lafayette, La hospital to Children's Memorial Hermann Houston, TX. Once he was transferred he has been breathing on his own but still has no suck, gag, or swallow reflex which means he cannot eat by mouth..He also still has issues with breathing due to the fact his brain is not sending the correct messages to breath. He has a Gtube placed and still currently has breathing issues .....there are all kinds of things that can go wrong with his growth later on in life like Cerbal Palsy and other issues but he has a strong support system in his dad and I with prayers and having faith in God we will do everything to make Khorey's life as normal as possible.....I'm not writing this for sympathy but only to say that my son is a figther and because doctor's didnt even think he would live or do half the things he is doing...I was so nervous about sharing Khorey's story but I know he is a gift from god and there is nothing to be ashamed of because he is a living and breathing testimony. There is currently a treatment that can improve Khorey's life and help with generating more cells in the parts of his brain that was damage. It is called Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. The treatments will be done in New Orleans for 2 months by Dr. Harch. Unfortunately this treatment is not covered by the medical insurance. We are asking for help in raising the funds for Khorey to partake in this treatment to improve his life. Anything given will go 100% to Khorey's care. Please if you can donate anything it would be appreciated....

Thank you to everyone that has donated and shared our campaign in aid of medical help for Khorey. It's been some time since I have updated everyone. Just thought I should say that Khorey completed treatment 40 today. We have seen tremendous improvements. To begin, Khorey was diagnosed with Cortical Blindness and we were told he really didn't see. Since treatment not only did they remove the diagnoses but Khorey see's very well and is able to track and focus. Next he had really high tone and hands would stay fisted but now he has full range of motion with his hands and is able to grab and play with his toys. He also has better head control and trunk control....He isn't able to fully suck or swallow yet but he has made efforts to regain it back. Our next steps in recovery for Khorey is to 1. Get a home soft HBOT Chamber so he can still improve. 2. We are scheduling for Khorey to receive Stem Cells to regenerate damaged ones. 3. Continue with therapy and incorporate other therapies such as Anat Baniel Method, MNRI, Craniosacral, and Intensive Therapy. 4. Do another round of 40 treatments of Hyperbaric Oxygen with Harch. This will be a long journey ahead but we ate trying to make sure we do whatever we can to make sure Khorey sustains the best quality of life he can. Thanks again to everyone who has donated and are still donating...It doesn't stop here and we could use all the help and support we can get....Sending love to everyone!

Wanted to update everyone....Khorey is having another surgery on the 27th....After he recovers we will officially be looking to start HBOT treatment in New Orleans with Dr Harch on Oct 1st....We have not raised all the funds to complete the treatment but the importance of starting the treatment early is critical so we will be going with what we have praying that we can raise the rest so he can complete treatment.....The longer we wait, the slimmer the chances that Khorey's quality of life will improve we treatment so we are going on faith that we will raise all funds needed while Khorey is starting treatment....Asking for everyone to please keep sharing and donating....We need the support more than ever.....Just wanted to give a big show of our appreciation to all that have donated and continue to share to help Khorey in any way. Also thanks for all your prayers and keeping Khorey in your prayers....
