Prayers For Preslee
I am opening this page for my sister Brooke. Excited to be having her first baby she was given some very scary news...her baby would be born with a Severe Congenital Heart Defect. Baby Preslee has been diagnosed with Pulmonary Atresia with a VSD as well as Major AortoPulmonary Collateral Ateries. She will be born at Texas Childrens Hospital in Houston. At this time Brooke has met with the babies team of Cardiologist, NICU, and Surgeons who are unable to give her any answers to help ease her anxiety's. Because Brooke lives about an hour from the hospital where the baby will be she will have to stay in Houston or drive back and forth. The Ronald McDonald house is an option for her although it is by first come first serve and she must check out each day at 9pm and call the next morning to be put on a waiting list. If there is no room she must find other alternatives. We are two weeks away from the babies birth and Brooke is definately feeling stresses already. The expenses for her to stay in Houston at Ronald McDonald house/hotels or to drive back and forth are tremendous. Please use this page to send prayers for Preslee and Brooke or to donate to help her with the expenses she is about to endure. We will continue to post updates here on baby Preslee and Brooke so you can continue to pray for them.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of Preslee's supporters !! Our family will be giving thanks this year to all of the special people and friends who have sent prayers and donations. We are very blessed to have two new babies (Evan Cole Watkins and sweet little Preslee) join our family this year especially after the tragic loss of our dad. We know he is in heaven watching over Preslee and telling god how precious she is to our family. Evan cannot wait to get to play with his cousin Preslee and be her buddy!! We want everyone to know you will be in our thoughts, hearts and prayers this holiday season! Thank you from the Cole, Ryan, Mays, Whisenhunt, Robertson, Priest, Ogle and Hayden family! God bless you all!
I want to say thank you to all the generous people who have donated to this fund. Our family will be forever grateful. I will be going to see Brooke and baby Preslee tomorrow and will post updates and pics both here and on Preslee's Facebook page. I want to say. Special thank you to Brooke's sister Shelby for setting up the fund page and doing such an awesome job of keeping everyone informed. Shelby, you are an awesome big sister and the best aunt a little girl could have!!! We love you!
Brooke has been staying with us for the last two weeks on bed rest preparing for the arrival of baby Preslee. These two weeks have been so precious to us. We have laughed, cried and shared so much together. Preslee has been given the gift of having the best mommy in the universe!!! We cannot wait to meet you sweet baby girl......!
also remember, if you stay at a hotel, ask for the medical rate, we do this in dallas when we have to go to Childrens and Scottish Rite, some of the hospitals even have room in rooms for new moms!
Come on folks in Ballinger and Runnels County, lets help Brooke so she will not have to worry about expenses besides a sick baby!
Lets all help Brooke enjoy the most important moments of becoming a mother! Prey and pass this link on to everyone you know!
