RIP Sweet Baby Axel!!

On January 30th our daughter Larissa was rushed to the hospital by ambulance in very poor conditions. Larissa is 7 months pregnant with our sweet little Grandson Axel. Most of you know, Larissa has been battling Type 1 diabetes for 24 years and on this very sad day they told us Axel's heart stopped beating and that Larissa's in very grave condition. Her body is in Severe Diabetic Ketoacidosis DKA. With her boyfriend Kodi at her side they did tell Larissa about the loss of her baby boy but we don't think she comprehended it. Later that day the Doctors made the decision to put Larissa on Life Support to help her body get out of DKA as all her labs were critical. Once Larissa is able to get off the vent we will be dealing with her having a C-section to remove Axel. We are starting this fundraiser to help Larissa and Kodi with the financial burden of Laying their precious baby Boy Axel to rest or whichever their wishes may be. Larissa has a long emotional road ahead of her and I don't want this to be one to worry about. We really appreciate everyone's love and support through this very sad moment in life.
