The Story

Omaha, NE

Derek Scholl and Cari Hawk were thrilled when they found out they were pregnant with their first child. During the 20 week ultrasound, they learned that their baby had esophageal atresia (EA), a rare birth defect in which the esophagus does not develop normally. They worked with a neonatal surgeon to plan for his birth and discuss treatment options. They eagerly anticipated his arrival which came sooner than accepted.

On January 19, 2018, Jhett Alan Scholl was born weighing four pounds five ounces and a full four weeks premature. Upon his birth, he was transferred to Children’s Hospital in Omaha, Nebraska where doctors confirmed his diagnosis of EA. When Jhett was just four days old, he underwent surgery to place a feeding tube in his stomach. He will still need further surgeries to fully repair his condition.

Jhett remains in the neonatal intensive care unit as he is constantly monitored. He is gradually growing and getting stronger, but will be in the NICU for an additional two months before he can hopefully go home. Though it has been stressful, the family has maintained a positive and upbeat attitude. They love rocking and reading to him. “We count our blessings every day. and he is chief among them,” Cari said.

Jhett’s parents hope to raise $8,000 through RedBasket.org to help with the insurance out-of-pocket maximum. “The goal will help us with medical expenses to help give Jhett the best life possible moving forward,” said Cari. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation and allow this young family to fully focus on Jhett’s recovery journey. Share this story today!

Jhett’s Scope Appt - Update |

Since many of you have been asking, here’s an update on our little man Jhett. As most of you know, Jhett had another endoscopic procedure Tuesday to see where each end of his esophagus was at. This would help determine if, and when, we could schedule the follow-up surgery in order to finally connect the 2 ends. As you can see in the picture, he gets a little scared whenever he goes down to the Operating Room because the portable suction unit is so loud. We were hoping this would be the time the surgeons said we were “good to go” to schedule the actual surgery. Anyways, after a brief procedure the surgeon came out to deliver the news:  there was still a gap between the 2 ends and everything would have to be pushed back a month meaning he will go down in another month for another scope at which point they will determine if they can schedule the connection surgery or if there will be more waiting.

Obviously, Cari and I were heartbroken by this news as we are very ready to take our little boy home. It tugs at our heart to see our son start the first few months of his life off in a hospital room. We headed back up to Jhett’s room, bummed out at the thought of more waiting. After all 3 of us took a nap that afternoon, a funny thing happened:  Jhett couldn’t stop smiling and smirking. Those of you that have met Jhett know that he’s very attentive and alert, but he hadn’t figured out the smiling and laughing thing yet (if you had a giant suction tube in your mouth 24/7 it’d probably be hard for you to physically smile, too). At that moment, on a day that was so hard for mom and dad to find positivity in, our little man lit up our world with his smile just to tell us that “everything was going to be alright.” Sometimes the littlest warriors teach us the biggest lessons. God is good! So while Tuesday did not go how we had hoped, through Jhett’s perseverance we remain patient, positive, and strong in hopes that Jhett will get to come home and meet you all soon! Thank you all for the ongoing support, positive vibes, prayers, and well-wishes! We love you all! God Bless!
