Funeral and Medical Expenses

I got admitted into the hospital for bed rest during my pregnancy with my twins on July 9th,2017 because I had ruptured membranes on one of the sacs which was baby "a" Leo X. Martinez. After being in the hospital for 5 weeks my body was finally ready to deliver my twin baby boys and we were ready to bring both of our babies home. I delivered them both through c-section at 10 in the morning. When Leo came out he was already having problems breathing on his own because his lungs weren't fully developed due to low amniotic fluid in the sac. Logan was doing just fine and was able to breathe properly.  The nurses took them to their room and they started trying to help Leo with his breathing using 2 different machines. They gave him medicine to help with his lungs and chest compressions. At about 8pm I was in my room when the nicu nurse called my nurse to give the news that they were still having problems and needed me to hurry up and go see him. I got there with my husband and they kept trying to help him with his breathing for a long time but there was nothing they can do. He was already bleeding through the inside of his little body and we were told even if they continued trying to help him he would be brain dead. I was on the side of his little icelet were he laid trying to comfort him and talk to him. I grabbed his hand with my finger and he squeezed it 3 times. I was hoping he was going to pull through but they tried helping a while longer and his heart just kept dropping. They asked us if we wanted to hold him and I held him in my arms and as he took his last breath we cried and told him how much we loved him. We never expected to go through this and I pray and hope that our other baby Logan makes it. We planned on taking both of our babies home but Leo gained his wings last night. It was so much to take all in one night. We are trying to raise money to help us with funeral arrangements for our baby boy. Anything will help. Thank you to everyone who has prayed for us and has reached out to speak to us. I'm sorry if I haven't responded to everyone it's just too hard to be answering everyone's questions and it's hard to deal with this right now. My heart is truly broken in pieces right now. Please continue to pray for my family and thank you for everything.
