My name is Landee and my brother Zack and sister in law Melissa were expecting their 2nd daughter in Oct 2022. Due to unforeseen circumstances, Haisley was born at 25 weeks on June 29th. Baby Haisley was life flighted to Idaho Falls since the delivering hospital did not have a NICU department. Due to some unforeseen complications she had during first few days of life Haisleys conditions worsened and she was life flighted to Salt Lake children's hospital where she is currently. She underwent surgery that first week in Salt Lake and since then has been getting stronger each day. Haisley still has a long road ahead of her and especially for my brother and his family. Melissa stays in Salt Lake full time while Zack travels to Salt Lake on the weekends. Zack started a business and has been trying to hold things down on the home front while dealing with everything going on. Melissa had started a new job shortly before Haisley joined their family since Kinsley their 17 month old daughter turned 1 and she was ready to get back to work. Due to the situation sending her to be in Utah her job had to let her go since she didn’t qualify for personal leave. With the separation Melissa will go weeks at a time without seeing Kinsley so will try and go down if she can or Zach will bring her up for a weekend. With that said Kinsley is not allowed in the NICU so one parent has to stay back while the other can visit. Either way there is a separation from Haisley which is hard. Due to the long drive and gas prices it has put out of pocket expenses they weren’t prepared for weekly so Melissa and Zach can spend some time together with Haisley. Not including normal medical expenses they get during this time and the out of pocket from being away from home has put strain on them so I am asking for help from the community.
We are asking for prayers for Haisley and also anything financially you are able to help with.
