Cover costs while Winslow's hospitalized

Hey Everyone,
As many of you know Winslow Brooks Ogle was born on Jan 1, 2014 with a heart defect called Transposition of the Great Vessels that required her to have open heart surgery a few days after she was born. The surgery went well and she's recovering, but she has a number of challenges still ahead. We've had many friends ask how they can help. Honestly the only thing we could use is some assistance with covering the costs. We live in Bridgeport, TX about 1.5 hours from the hospital. So we've been staying in Fort Worth near the hospital, Cook Children's, and the costs of staying in a hotel and eating out frequently are pretty substantial. We've been staying in a hotel for 4 weeks and it sounds like we'll be here for another 4-8 weeks. Some of you may ask why we aren't staying in the Ronald McDonald house and the answer is our little dog Georgie has congestive hear failure and requires regular care and medication, so putting him in a kennel or staying with a friend isn't an option. He actually had to be hospitalized on Jan 3 for about a week because we weren't giving him proper care with all of the things going on after Winslow's birth. Any assistance you can provide would be great.
