Brantley Ray O'Connor
Organized by: Lori O'Connor
Brantley was born on 8/12/15 at Children's Hospital in Minneapolis, MN - 6 lbs & 19" long. He was born with Spina Biffida which required surgery the day after he was born to put the nerve back and close the spine. He aso required surgery on his head to put a shunt in to drain the fluid off his brain. He will have weekly appointments to check the shunt for proper flowage which will all be down at Children's Hospital. Brantley also has two holes in his heart - a condition called CHF (Congestive Heart Failure) - they are watching these closely and are hoping they will close on their own, if not, then he will require heart surgery as well. Brantley was born with one club foot. He got his leg casted at his last appointment on Sept. 18th. He will need to go back weekly for the next three months to this Dr. as well to get the leg re-casted. Please keep Brantley and his parents, John & Kaitlyn in your prayers!!
