Lily was born on 10/05 at 30 weeks 4 days gestation due to preeclampsia complications. She weighed only 2 pounds at birth. Mom(Amber) was hospitalized 5 days prior for severely high blood pressure and the risk of stroke or seizures and doctors were only able to barely control it which was causing unsafe conditions for baby and mom. Lily will be in the Nicu for at least 9 weeks. Her weight keeps fluctuating right now as well as having apnea spells where her tiny body forgets to breathe. She will grow and learn to eat without her feeding tube during this time. Lily has an older sister at home who is two and missing mommy very much during the time Amber is with Lily at the hospital. Trying to balance seeing both children each day and the 1 1/2 to 2 hour drive between kids is causing a lot of financial and mental stress! Amber will be out of work for at least 8 weeks due to C section surgery and to have time to be with Lily while she is in the Nicu. Any funds raised will help tremendously!
