Amelia's Medical Expenses

Jordan and Tim's sweet baby Amelia was born on September 27th, 2017.  Since their 20 week ultrasound they knew their daughter would be born with a heart defect.  After many ultrasounds and tests they determined that her pulmonary valve was thicker than normal which caused her right ventrical to be smaller than her left.  She had a procedure done when she was one day old to stretch out the valve.  The surgeon and cardiologist were both very happy with how things went and she had a few great days.  Amelia suffered a few small setbacks and eventually one big one.  She had a procedure done to put a few stents into her heart which went well until she was coming out of anesthesia and her stats started dropping.  They discovered she had a blood clot where they had placed one of the stents in her heart and they rushed her back to perform an emergency procedure to remove the clot.  Thankfully they were successful and things were looking up again.   Jordan, Tim and Amelia were getting closer and closer to being able to go home from the hospital, but Amelia had a very scary night and they eventually learned that she had a severe bacteria infection of the blood and lungs which means that she will be in the hospital for another 6-7 weeks so she can be on antibioitics.  They went from being days away from leaving until not leaving until she is over two months old.  Living out of the hospital and worrying about their daughter every second of every day has been so tough on them.  Jordan, Tim and Amelia have all been so strong over the past three weeks and are carrying the weight of this stress and worry so well.  Jordan will be spending her entire maternity leave in the hospital by Amelia's side.  They are already amazing parents to their sweet girl and deserve to have a little bit of the burden of their medical expenses lifted off of their shoulders.  Please help give whatever you feel you can.  Thank you!
