The doctors were concerned if she would even make it to or past 25 weeks. Miracle baby Stasia blew us all away by holding in there till one day away from her 31 week mark! Bianca was rushed to the hospital due to having contractions mid-afternoon that day, and around 10:15 p.m that night Anastasia Faith Meyers was welcomed into this world. Once she was born we all discovered that she has what is known as Gastroschisis (a birth defect in the abdominal wall, where the intestines are found outside of the baby’s body, exiting through a hole typically beside the belly button). However, Anastasia’s case is far worse. Her entire little belly is completely open, leaving her intestines , liver, and kidneys exposed on the outside of her body. Bianca was not able to see her because she was immediately rushed into surgery where they then put in what is called a “Silo.” Pretty much something that helps stretch her insides to be able to push her intestines , liver , and kidneys back inside of her. Once a week the doctors preform surgery , stretching her more and more , for everything to work it’s way back in and settle on its own. The Boston Childerens Hospital told Bianca that Anastasia’s case is by far the worst they have ever had, and if she makes it she will be a MIRACLE! So far she has some rough and some amazingly outstanding days. This is going to be such a long journey for not only Stasia but Bianca ,too. Due to the circumstances of everything being a day by day process , Bianca is left struggling currently in the hospital as a single mother with no help besides family and a couple of friends. She can’t leave her sweet angels side to go back to work, which could potentially leave her in a financial bind at some point or another.
So as her bestfriend I would like to ask for everyone’s help, as well as my own, to please help raise this money. Not only to help take care of her bills while she stays in the hospital until Stasia is out of the NICU , but also for once she gets to come home . So that all her medical needs are helped taken care of.
So at this time of you could please take a few seconds and close your eyes, imagine going through this critical time as a single mother like Bianca . Not only is she emotionally but also physically drained going through all of this with Anastasia.
We do understand that not everybody can make a donation , but if you could please say a prayer for the both of them, we would greatly appreciate it. Please help share this post so that it can reach as many people as possible. All of the love, prayers, and support is much needed. Thank you SO much. -Summer Pharris
