I have set up this site for my daughter, Tiffany Velasco. Tiffany is a medically retired disabled Army Veteren. Tiffany just gave birth March 21, 2015 to a 3 pound 11 ounce baby boy at 30.6 weeks.
Tiffany suffered injuries during a fall on a 12 mile ruckmarch which resulted in tearing muscle from her spine, sacrum, and pelvic girdle along with stress fractures of the pelvic girdle, and chronic hip bursitis.
Making her pregnancy difficult.
At 26 weeks, of her pregnacy, Tiffany began spotting. She had a Fetal Firbronectin test which was positive for preterm labor, to protect the baby she was put on bed rest at home. Two weeks later she lost her Aminoitic Fluid while at home. She was then on bed rest at the hospital. The baby - Harrison was only 2 pounds 15 ounces at that time. She had chronic contractions through out each day with an irriabilble uterus, and bleeding. She was given Magnesium Sulfate three days in a row this slowed down labor giving Harrison more time to develop, She was then given Turbuline to stop contractions giving baby another 2 days. Wednesday she began having placenta seperation from the uterus with blood clots. Tiffany was in Labor and Delivery for a total of 13 days, which gave Harrison enough time to gain more weight, and extra time for lung development. On the 21st of March an emergency csection was needed due to large placenta tearing and hemorraghing. At birth baby Harrison weighed only 3 pounds and 11 ounces. Harrison's stay time in the NICU is estimated around two months as of now.
Tiffany is a single mom.
I am asking for donations to help Tiffany pay for living costs, help with gas to and from the hospital, and other baby special care needs while he's in the hospital. Tiffany would like to dedicate as much of her time as possible to spend time with her new son during his recovery.
