Help Support Isaiah's Recovery
  • Isaiah has just gotten out of surgery and we got the best possible outcome. The fluid in question was infection and not CSF, and they were able to close up without needing a drain or the plastic surgery team. Isaiah will be put on antibiotics and should be able to sit up soon after he wakes up.

  • On July 29th Isaiahs incision began leaking and he was brought in and stitched back up. Unfortunately the fluid (not confirmed as CSF yet) began pooling in his back.

    Isaiah was born with spina bifida myeloschisis meaning there was not a sac covering his open lesion on his back. This means his skin was stretched very thin in order to patch the wound.

    In order to remedy the pooling, neurosurgery will have to go in and perform a "wound revision" which plastic surgeons will be required to close as a result of the thin skin. They will be possibly inserting a lumbar drain to prevent further pooling, and will be grafting tissue (mostly muscle) from parts in his back which are not used as much.

    This procedure will require a several day inpatient stay and strict bed rest for several weeks following in order to optimize healing.

    We thank you and love all of you so much for all of your continued support during this difficult and completely unpredictable time.

Help Support Isaiah's Recovery

The time has come for surgery #11 for Isaiah - a complex spinal detethering in July.

As you all know, Isaiah was born with spina bifida which included a closure of an open lesion the day he was born. All spina bifida patients have tethered cord to some degree, but the concern comes when certain changes happen. Thankfully we have been able to wait this long. The doctor will go in and separate the spinal cord from the scar tissue. We may not see any function improvement, but it should help prevent him from losing any more function in the future.

The surgery itself will take about four hours, but recovery will take up to several weeks.

Due to the rest of our family still working and his father living so far away, we have made the collective decision that the best option for recovery and optimal results would be for me to take time off work to be able to assist Isaiah during this time.

The money donated to this cause will be used to pay for household bills, meals, travel expenses, and anything leftover will be put into savings for any future medical necessities.

Your donation is invaluable and even a share would help us out a lot.

If you have any questions or concerns about this cause, please feel free to message me directly and I will reply in a timely manner.

Thank you in advance!
