Imagine you are expecting a bouncing baby girl and everything is going great. And then it isn’t. It is the opposite of great.
This fundraiser for Baby Natalie Marie is to help a sweet family offset the medical costs for a very sick baby girl.
Natalie was born at 37 weeks by emergency c-section. Her mommy Kerrah, had a scheduled induction a week ago today. However, she experienced a placental abruption and leaving baby Natalie without oxygen for a period of time, prompting doctors to perform the emergency C-Section. Baby Natalie is then whisked off to a nearby university hospital with a serious NICU and this is when the complications began to surface. So far in her seven days of life, she has fought more battles then most people experience in a lifetime. Two collapsed lungs, a bleed on her little brain, poor kidney output, clotting issues with the ECMO machine meant to allow her little heart and lungs to heal. And most recently, a surgery to put an arterial line and back on a ventilator. The medical costs are mounting. Kerrah is a stay at home mommy to her 6 year old daughter and 3 year old son. Andrew works full time but is currently off work holding vigil at the hospital. Our teaching community has answered the call to help this sweet girl and her family in a big way!
