Please help The Abbott Family

On September 17, my niece Kristyn gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, Elijah, with her husband Shaun by her side.  Everything was awesome for this new family until Kristyn developed extreme pain and had emergency gall bladder surgery on Oct. 3.  She developed acute pancreatitis has been in the hospital ever since dealing with many severe complications.  Two weeks ago she was transfered to a hospital an hour away from her home.   Yesterday she developed another complication with an infection and fever, and the doctors moved her to ICU.  They are stuggling to keep a positive attitude as I am sure you can imagine.  Luckily they both have family close by so the baby has been loved and cared for while Shaun is a work and Kristyn is unable to care for him herself.  Unfortunately, the longer she remains in the hospital, the harder it is to maintain a positive outlook.  The doctors are not able to say when she will be able to go home but they have said that even when that happens, the recovery will be a long one.  She will not be able to return to work in the forseeable future.  Please consider helping this family.  Medical bills are piling up and although she does have insurance, they have a huge deductible and without Kristyn's income they will struggle to make house payments.  Let's show them what love can do.  Please give any amount.. and if money isn't something you can give at this time, please send your prayers.  Thank you.
