The Story

Baby Adlai is a happy 12 month old beautiful child who has been plagued by illness thoughout his short life.

After months of emergency room and numerous doctors visits going from one specialist to another he was diagnosed with congenital anomaliesSevere Tracheal Stenosis (narrowing due to a birth defect is a rare condition in which the cartilage support structure of the trachea can cause a narrowing of the airway), Pulmonary Artery Sling (This compresses the lower trachea and right mainstem bronchus, producing upper airway symptoms). His trachea is currently the size of a 3 mo old premature infant.  He has one enlarged right kidney and he has fused and missing vertebrae along with fused ribs and Esoptropia, which is the in-turningof one or both eyes.  

is scheduled to have surgery on June 26, 
2013, at The Children's Hospital in Colorado whichwill be a Slide Treacheoplastyon bypass to reconstruct his trachea and pulmonary artery sling.  This procedure will also require a blood transfusion.  Without this surgery Adlai will not make it through another winter.  In addition, the family will be required to stay at or near the hospital for the following month as well as additional surgeries in the near future.  This particular surgery is not common and is going to cost over $200,000. A few weeks after the surgery Adlai will have to undergo Strabismus Surgery to fix the Esotropia. Strabismus surgery strengthens or weakens eye muscles, which changes the alignment of the eyes relative to each other.

We are a young family with two other children who are very worried about their baby brother.  We would truly appreciate any monetary donations as well as your prayers for this upcoming surgery and the after care required.

Please help if you can.  Donations can be made through the give now tab located above. You can also drop off or mail checks to ACPE Federal Credit Union care of Adlai's Medical Fund 2835 E Grand Ave. Laramie WY 82072

Thank you and God Bless.

Adlai is doing very well right now. He is so happy and energetic. We didn't notice the difference in his energy levels and how long of naps he had taken until after the surgery.

Tomorrow Adlai will undergo Bronchoscopy and strabismus surgery

Keep the prayers coming so he will continue to stay healthy and get over this last hurtle.

We can't thank everyone enough for all the wonderful prayers and support he has and continues to receive.

We are extremely happy to inform everyone that Adlai had another broncoscopy this morning and the doctors said he looks amazing. He will finally be able to go back home to Grand Junction! His next visit will be in six weeks where he will have another broncoscopy and the strabismus surgery.

We will continue to keep everyone updated throughout the process.

We cannot thank everyone enough for all of your thoughts, prayers and support throughout this journey.

As Adlai undergoes the recovery process please continue to pray for him. He is truly an inspiration and a little superhero to so many people.

Today Adlai had his Bronchoscopy procedure and it went very well. The doctors said it is healing just as it should. His stitches were also removed and they said the incisions look great.

Unfortunately, Adlai had a fever right before the procedure this morning and the doctors decided to do some blood work and X-rays to see if there was an infection. They will also be doing a cardiogram to check for fluid around the heart.

They decided to admit him in the hospital at least for tonight to monitor the fever and start any antibiotics if necessary. We will keep you updated as we find out more information.

We are praying there is no infection and hoping its just a virus he is fighting.

Please keep Sweet Adlai in your thoughts and prayers.
