Lola Nancy was born Feb. 13th, 2014. She was a healthy 7lb 5oz baby. Shortly after her birth, doctors noticed that she had an enlarged heart. On Friday, Feb 14th, 2014, Lola was flown 240 miles to the closest childrens hospital in Minneapolis. After many tests, doctors diagnosed baby Lola with Congenital Hemangioma and cardiovascular hypertension. These conditions affect her heart and liver (more information about her condition can be found at http://m.pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/118/3/e907.full
) Doctors have Lola on steroids and blood pressure medication. As of now her treatment is day to day. They will continue to perform ultrasounds on her liver, heart, and lungs to see how they're progressing. Currently Lola is having to eat with a feeding tube. If she responds well to treatment, she will be able to go home within 2-4 weeks.
Currently Lola's mom (an honor role high school senior) is on a waiting list for the Ronald McDonald house. However, the waiting list is extensive and she is not able to stay with Lola at the hospital. She will do everything possible to stay by her daughter's side. However, costs for accomodations, food, and travel are already starting to add up and without help she will not be able to stay by her daughter's side. Through it all, Lola's mom is staying possitive and sticking by her baby. Please Help baby Lola and her mom stay together during this trying time.
