My husband and I chose to be donors as well, I have asked my (adult) children to consider doing the same.



It's not like we'll need the organs or tissue when we're gone.

Default Prayer Chain for Blake

"Update for Baby Blake. After a good 24hrs with sprints every 6hrs today is the day. At 3:00 pm the tube will be coming out and he will be going on cpap (forced air threw the nose). They stopped his feedings till after the tube comes out so he don't get sick. Also pulled the feeding tube from his nose and went down his throat. They do that to allow for the cpap to fit in his nose. All in all the great day because with no tube mom and dad can hold easier. Thank you everyone again for the awesome show of support and prayers. God Bless"

Please keep baby Blake in your prayers and thank you all for your donations, every little bit helps.

MZJG and i are going to give the parents the donations at the benefit for baby Blake Saturday, May 18, 2013 so we will be accepting donations at the Paypal address in the first post until May 17 and it will be "from the members of greatlakes4x4.com". we will post a total gathered from the site then.

again, If you're more comfortable with making the donation directly to the fund set up for Blake here is the info you will need to do so.

in care of Blake Fitzpatrick III

"Update on baby Blake.
They removed the ventilator tube yesterday and put him an cpap. He was a little mad for awhile.
He didn't like not getting food and having the tube pulled out. He is now in a better mood now that they started his feedings again. Hoping he can keep the tube out and get stronger.
If they have to put the tube back in it will stay till transplant. All of his stats have been very good without ventilator tube.
Which is a big plus. With the tube out and being listed on the transplant list. Sounds like our prayers are getting answered. Thank you so much for your continued support and prayers. God Bless"

" Update on Baby Blake. He has been off the ventilator for 3 days now but still using the cpap. He will have to stay on cpap till transplant because it helps relieve stress on his heart. They are keeping him calm with meds so he doesn't get mad and make his heart race. The first night off he woke up not feeling good and mad. His heart rate got up to 225 beats per minute and didn't want to come down.... They thought they were going to have to put him back on the ventilator. Luckily they gave him some fluids and meds that helped. Then dad suggested that he likes to be prone and like magic back down to 160bpm. They are keeping him prone and got his feeds going to help get him stronger. Taking small steps in the right direction and that's all we can ask for. Also our families are doing a benefit on May 18th. Here is the link if you are interested. Thank you everyone for the support and prayers. God Bless "

Sorry to hear that, Chef.
I cant even begin to imagine...

Please keep praying for Blake and his family.

If you aren't already donor, please consider giving the gift of life.

Donation, and prayers sent! My little guy was just born march 14. We had a little scare, which required a trip to a NICU after having him home for 2 days. All is well now.
I can't imagine having to go through this with a newborn.
