Benefit to be held for Coltyn Anderson
Coltyn Anderson, son of Jordan and Sara Anderson of Sheldon, was born on January 3rd, two months premature. Along with the common health issues that come with being premature, he also has a heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot, which prevents adequate blood flow through the heart. He spent his first 25 days in Sanfordís NICU and was flown to the U of M Medical Center to endure heart surgery. In his surgery they were only able to place a shunt due to the size of his pulmonary artery. He spent almost 8 more weeks in the NICU, Cardio Vascular ICU, and Med Surg floors there before finally being able to come home with Mom and Dad. Coltyn will need to return to the U of M this summer for a second surgery which will complete the necessary repairs.
Coltyn is now doing well and getting used to being at home with his mom, dad and sister Sedona. He will need to continue to live a somewhat isolated life, away from illness and such, until he has fully recovered from his second surgery. But at least he gets to sleep in his own bed and enjoy all the hugs and kisses from his family.
To help with the high medical costs and etc. that Coltyn has incurred, there will be a benefit on May 3rd, 2014 at the Enderlin VFW. Although not all details have been quite ironed out, the Andersons Iím sure would be appreciative of any support our community can give. More details will be coming and please plan to attend for Coltyn!!
