I am the mother of a daughter who just had open heart surgury and a c-section on june 27th at the mayo clinic.
the baby weighed 2 lbs and 1/2 oz. she has to stay at the nicu unit until her due date of sept 27th. the problem is my daughter and her husband are both staying at the ronald mcdonald house right now because my daughter has to have dr. appointments for the next 2 weeks and she has 2 other children at home who need her. she is 14 hours away from them and since neither she or her husband are working. (he cant leave her yet until she is strong enough) they cant afford to fly back and forth from w.va to minnesota to the clinic to be with the baby. the drs wanted her to breast feed so the baby would benefit more and help her grow. she can pump milk because the can only give the little one tiny bits as of yet. but they need help getting to and from wva to the clinic. if anyone can help please let me know. they are both hard workers and have just fallen on hard times with her illness and havnt been able to work. the family and friends have helped with rent and utilities up to this point but we can only do that so long. please if you know anyone with an airplain who would be willing to fly either of them out there once a month or so please let me know. im trying to help her by doing this because she isnt able to yet. thank you a very worried mother
