Sawyer Eli Calton

Hi friends. Sawyer, the little boy born and admitted to Vandy the same week as Ryman who also has CPS1 is preparing for his liver transplant. Sawyer has been managed by his diet for the past year, but now he is starting to show signs that his body is needing more protein then he can actually eat. Too much protein means risk of elevated ammonia levels and too little means the risk of not growing. Your body just can’t thrive and grow without enough protein. Please like his page and follow his journey at Sawyer’s Journey. They are having a golf tournament to help raise funds. The family will be traveling to Cincinnati for his transplant and will have to stay there for a while after. Just as we did in DC. Sawyers mom and I have become friends and she has been someone for me to talk too. A mom who knows exactly what I mean when I say words like Citrulline, Cyclinex, and Prophree. I really don’t think its anything other than God when you have two children almost the same exact age with such a rare disorder at the same hospital. I mean, guys, the chances of that happening ever again are really really slim. If you can’t help out or attend I plan on setting up a donation site soon. Sawyer already has lots of hospital bills and the medication he has to have is very expensive. The family will need money for food, travel and lodging as well. As
we know, Ryman’s transplants were over a million dollars. So we can assume one is around the $500,000 range. Insurance will cover a percentage but they will be responsible for a pretty big chunk of that. A family should not have to stress about finances when dealing with a sick child. Please help out if you can. Prayers are greatly appreciated! I will let you know once I get the site set up if you would like to donate. Much love, B.
Sawyer Eli Calton and Ryman Ali Little

  1. I have been following your blog ever since January… On January 8th my sister gave birth to a baby boy, and on the second day of his life we heard a doctor say this scary diagnosis once again ( unfortunately my sister 2 years ago had a baby boy with same diagnosis but no one knew about it until it was too late…) …. My little nephew had his liver transplant yestorday at 5 months of age! May God continue to bless your little girl and now little Saweyer as well!
