23 JulDifficult Days for Austin

Please keep Austin in your thoughts. Over the last few weeks his general condition has deteriorated. He has had numerous chest infections this year, and as he recovers from each one his lung function deteriorates. His heart and lung function has deteriorated significantly over the last six months. He has needed oxygen intermittently over the last two weeks to help his breathing.

He also has had a feeding tube inserted to ensure he can safely get the nutrition that he needs. His ayis are very worried about him, but are giving him all of the TLC he needs!

Despite all of these issues, Austin continues to smile and share his joy with everyone in the home. Although Austin has a complicated medical condition and multiple health issues we know he is a fighter.

We hope he will overcome these latest issues and turn a corner soon. Please keep him, and his ayis in your thoughts as they navigate through these challenging days.
