On Thursday October 19th, our friend Allie had to have an emergency C-Section due to preeclampsia, and Harper having inter-uterine growth restriction (IUGR). She delivered a beautiful 1lb 2oz baby girl, Harper. Allie is still in the hospital because of her high blood pressure, so she is able to see Harper multiple times a day. However, once she is released, she lives almost an hour from the hospital- where Harper will more than likely be until January, if not later. Allie is also on medical maternity leave from work, but is not receiving full pay during her time out.
We are asking for prayers and donations so that Allie & Chris will be able to pay bills, food, gas to get back and forth to the hospital- as well as buy the things they still need for when Harper finally gets to come home. Harper coming into the world was unexpected for Allie & Chris, and even though they will be having a baby shower still, we all know that there will still be things that will be needed for sweet Harper.
Allie is one of our oldest, bestest friends and she is already an incredible mother. Any donation will be able to help her and her little family get through this incredibly tough time by taking something off their plate, if you can give a dollar or five or ten, or more, that would be great. Every little bit will help them and alleviate just some of the stress that they feeling right now, so that they can concentrate all their energy on their beautiful baby girl.
Thank you everyone for your prayers, blessings, or donations for Allie, Chris, and Harper, we know she truly appreciates it.
