Meet Ashton

Thank you so much for the blankie. It came at the perfect time. Ashton is in the hospital with RSV and he loves holding the blankie!

Ashton was born on September 1, 2009. He has been through a lot in just a short time. Ashton was born with a duodenal atresia that had to be repaired at birth. Two days later there was a leak at the repaired site so he had to be rushed into surgery and at that time a g-tube was placed. Ashton remained at Children's for 28 days. He was also born with an AV canal defect and Downs syndrome.
Just a few weeks of being home from the hospital Ashton had to be taken to the ER due to the g-tube was bleeding. He remained at Children's for another five days. Just this past week (1/4) we had to take Ashton back to the ER because he started breathing funny and looking a little blue. We were told that he has RSV and is on oxygen.
On a better note. He had an echo and the cardiologist said that one of the small holes has closed on its own and Ashton will not need his heart surgery until he is about two years old.
