Baby Laila is now an Angel. Please Help

Information on Laila's condition This is Laila. She was born in late March with a condition known as Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia. This means that her organs grew into her chest cavity while she was in her mother's womb. As a result, she also has Pulmonary Hypertension. She has undergone one operation so far to correct the placement of her organs. Because she is so fragile, the smallest thing (like a diaper change) can send her into a state that can jeopardize her life.
Laila's parents are handling this as best they can but as you can imagine, it is not easy. They have a two year old son that had open heart surgery shortly before his sister was born. Their son, Chris, is living with his grandparents here in Savannah while Misty is living at the Ronald McDonald House three hours away. Her husband, Mike works two hours away and has few opportunities to make the commute to be with his wife and daughter. Misty is a teacher that hasn't been able to work since before Laila was born. While the emotional burden is something to behold, the financial burden is just beginning. Between medical bills and the expense of living out of town for over two months, this family is already up to $40,000. This is before the bills for surgery and being in the the Neonatal ICU. Please, if you can, donate to help our dear friends. If you are unable to donate, please say a prayer for them. Thank you and God Bless you.
