Gofundme Description:
UPDATE
Time got away from us - but we are PLEASED TO ANNOUCE - Peyton is BACK IN THE US! They landed in Houston yesterday evening and then transferred to Texas Children's Hospital. Peyton and Christie were so excited to be back in the States! Christie cried, overcome with emotion - and Peyton was very animated! Christie was probably most excited about taking a hot shower - with it remaining hot throughout, and available at any time of the day! ;) As well, the updated medical equipment was a much welcome relief!

Peyton was admitted and is being followed by the surgery team there. There is some concern for Peyton - as he has developed a low grade fever. This could be nothing but might be a secondary infection that can happen with ruptured appendixes. So he will be at Texas Childrens for 5, but possibly 10 days.

2 news stations have been following the story - KHOU 11 ran a story Friday night before they arrived - and have kept in touch. And KPRC 2 interviewed Christie this morning and ran a story tonight. Both Christie and Peyton and family are extremely grateful for all the love and support that has poured in since the very beginning! Thank you all!

Original Request
Christie and her son Peyton need help. Christie and her children were on a Carnival cruise when Peyton became ill. He was diagnosed with appendicitis from the ships doctor. They were then dropped off at the port and left to fend for their own well-being. She has received money for the surgery ($3000 up front) and is awaiting Peyton's release. They still need to taxi to the U.S. embassy to obtain emergency passports and secure their luggage. The ship has left them and they are stranded in Progresso, Mexico. They need help with hotels, travel expenses, food, passports and maybe even air fare. Anything that anyone can do to help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
