Our son Karsyn Joe Hewitt was born on July 29th 2012 at only 3lbs. He was a month early and was diagnosed with Pulmonary Valve Stenosis. The valve in his heart was almost completely closed so the doctors were going to do a procedure where they insert a catheter through his groin to his heart and then inflate a balloon inside his valve. Because Karsyn was so tiny the doctors wanted to wait untill he gained weight so they told us that it would be a couple of weeks even before the procedure. On Aug. 12th, he was diagnosed with Necrotizing Enterocolitis(NEC), his intestine tissues began to die. Everything happened so fast. They removed a portion of intestine, hoping that it was enough for him to start healing. With the tissue bursts releasing a high level of potassium, his tiny heart couldn't take it. Karsyn Joe Hewitt passed away in our arms on August 13th, 2012, 2 weeks, 1 day old. Now we are trying to raise money for a service for friends and family to attend. Thank you to all that can help!
