Losing our babygirl

My beautiful 5 year old niece has been in and out of the hospital since November 21st, 2018. Making it hard for her mom to work. She came back Tuesday morning to children's hospital. They said she tested positive for RSV and also had severe pneumonia. On Thursday morning December 20, 2018, the doctors were trying to vent her but they couldn't get it to work. They had to put her on the ecmo machine in her room. They didnt have the time to put it in the right way, so she had to undergo a 5 hour surgery to fix it so that she would be able to have blood circulation to her legs. During that procedure, her leg swelled up so bad that they had to cut down both sides of her right leg. After the surgery, she lost a lot of blood but was staying stable. On December 22nd, they found a brain bleed and needed to be taken of the ecmo machine right away. The did a cut scan and they pronounced her brain dead at 630 p.m. last night. They will confirm it again around 4 p.m. today. I am trying to help my sister raise some money so she doesnt have to go back to work right away and any funeral expenses since we didn't have any of this planned.  Thank you so much everybody.  If you can't donate, don't worry.  Just say a prayer for our family.
