We are a community and communities support and help one another through the good times and the bad times.

Blake and Megan Gotliffe could use our love and support. Little Sous Chef Landon was born February 1. He has been met with some challenges and is back in the hospital. As you can imagine this has been stressful both emotionally and financially for Blake and Megan while they try to maintain their farm and business. 

Every little bit counts. Please help us help one of our own. Blake and Megan are exceptionally giving stewards. Lets show them our support.

We cannot thank you enough for your thoughtfulness and are so grateful to have such a supportive community!!

Update on Lil Sous......
The doctors have determined that Landon has genetic disorder called 10p Deletion. As tough as it is to hear that your child has a genetic disorder, we finally have an answer to explain all the problems that he has been facing over this last month. In a nutshell this disorder affects his breathing/eating abilities, heart, hearing, kidneys and comes with some possible developmental delays.
We were informed today that his kidney scans were normal (YAY!).
The doctors had already found that Landon has a Right Aortic Arch, which means his aorta is coming out of the heart towards the right instead of the left like it should. Normally this would not be an issue, however in Landon's case it is causing the blood vessels to wrap around his esophagus and trachea, hence the breathing and eating issues. They have planned to preform surgery to correct the vessels and have assured us that this will greatly improve his ability to eat normally and the breathing should improve over some time on its own. There is still a possibility that he will need some assistance from a feeding tube in the beginning just to make sure he is getting the adequate amount of nutrition he needs to grow. But we are just happy that we finally have something that we can fix!
His hearing test was inconclusive, but they said from the data they were able to collect he is showing signs of "moderate to moderately severe" hearing loss. They have scheduled another test for 6-8weeks to get a better answer on if his hearing is affected or not, and if so how severe.
As for the developmental delays we are waiting on a more specified genetic test to come back that will determine how much genetic material Landon is missing with this deletion. Unfortunately this test takes 4-6 weeks to come in. This test will not tell us exactly what we will be up against in the future but it will give us an idea. Basically the more material that is missing the more developmental delays he may face, but that is something that will come to light as he grows.
We can not thank you all enough for your help. We know we have a long road ahead of us and it is reassuring to know we have such wonderful people in our lives willing to show support in a very difficult time for our family. We love you all so much!!!!
Megan, Blake, and Landon
