Kaden Taylor - HLHS

$6,675 of $8,000 goal

Raised by 58 people in 7 months
Created July 13, 2017
Kaden Taylor is a 3 year old boy with HLHS  (hypoplastic left heart syndrome) which a congenital heart defect in which the left heart is severly underdeveloped.  He recently went in for his 3rd heart surgery, Fontan.  The surgery itself went well, but unfortunetly Kaden suffered  two strokes on both side of his brain leaving him with a signifigant amount of brain damage.  Air got into the vessels that supplies blood to his brain.  He cannot move his left hand, eat, talk or focus on things.  He can move his legs but has very little control.  At this time his brain in swollen so they will not be able to pinpoint the specific damage until the swelling goes down.  After leaving the cardiac unit he will be placed on another floor where he will begin extensive therapy.  The therapy could take weeks, months, possibly even years. 
Kaden's hospital stay was suppose to be for a week and a half, and now due to unforseen changes in Kaden's status, it is unsure how long he will remain in the hospital.  
Jake and Tiffany (mom and dad) will also need to be taking time away from work and the help provided here may give them some relief from additional stress of worrying about their finacial situation.

Poor little Kaden cannot catch a break. After overcoming his heart surgery and slowly recovering from the strokes he had during his surgery, Kaden now is suffering from a terrible infection in his chest. He was taken back into the OR last night where the cleaned out the infection. The are keeping his chest open and putting a wound vac on it that will continuously suck out any extra fluid, keep the wound dry and and prevent any more bacteria from growing. He will wear this for about a week as well on being on IV antibiotic for at least 6 weeks. Please keep Kaden, Jake and Tiffany in your thoughts and prayers.

Visited Kaden, Jake and Tiffany today. Kaden had his eyes open and when we spoke to him he knew we were there. It is only a matter of time before the swelling goes down and they will be able to determine the specific areas (motor skills / speaking) that are affected by the strokes he has suffered.
Please keep Kaden, Tiffany, and Jake in your thoughts and your prayers....the family so grateful.
