This is my 5month old baby boy Christopher Luke Collins. He only has a couple of hours to live. Friday my wife took my four year old and my son to the pediatrician. When she got home to get him out, he was unresponsive. He went without oxygen for at least 17 minutes. He has never recovered. We are at east Tennessee children's hospital. This is just the latest tragedy to strike our family in 2016. On January 5th our home was destroyed by fire. We lost everything including a dog and both of our vehicles. My wife had to be flown by helicopter TO UT medical center from smoke inhalation. That was the night we found out we were pregnant. We were so happy. The house was ultimately took out from under us. So after paying the payment, insurance, taxes, and maintaining our home for 10 years. We had nothing. So 3weeks later i lose my job. Several other things has happened but i don't want to go on forever. Then after being pretty much homeless for a couple of months. I got a better job. Had 2 vehicles, an apartment. Slowly we have bought or had gave to us clothes, furniture, home goods, etc. We were doing great. I got a bed for my four year old, crib for Christopher Luke. Friday morning before this happened i finally bought my wife a bed for Christmas after sleeping on the floor for nearly a year. We made sure that our children have before we do. I have been working out of town for the last few months. So she would get to enjoy it more than i. Our daughter was sick that Friday with an ear ache. He had been coughing slightly. So she made them both an appointment. She went, then to the pharmacy. That's when i went and got the bed. When she got home she thought he was asleep. She rubbed his belly to wake him and no response. So she was frantic. We started CPR and called 911. The doctors said that we did CPR perfect. If we wouldn't have done it he would've been DOA. Thank you in advance
Plus I've already missed 2days of work already. Hopefully I'll still get my hoilday pay. But I'm not going to be able to work for at least another week. I can't afford to miss an hour.
Then medical expenses. Idk what we're going to do on that situation
Lastly funeral cost. People say they will do it for free. But we have to buy a casket, fault,and other things. I'm going to rent a mini excavator and dig the whole myself. So that will save 500 approximately.
