Baby Sebastian's Medical Fund

I'm setting up this GoFundMe account for my dear friend I've known since Junior High school.  My friend, Brooke, has had a brush with bad luck and quite the scare regarding her infant son Sebastian.  Just last Thursday her tiny 4 month old son was admitted to ICU at Nemours Hospital in Orlando.  Brooke, being a nurse herself, came home from work to find her baby in really bad shape; he was pale, lethargic, spiking high fevers, vomiting up the fever reducers and any bottles, and was struggling to breathe.  Seeing that his oxygen was steady at 89 % (normal is 97-100%) she called 911 and he was immediately transported to Neumors where the doctors quickly discovered he had RSV and Corona virus.  RSV is a very serious and contagious virus in infants that affects the respiratory tract and has even been known to be fatal.  Fortunately, this is not the case for baby Sebastian.  Although his prognosis was looking grim upon arrival and into the second night in the hospital, he is slowly but surely progressing in the ICU.  There have been a few set backs but now (being day 5) there is talk of Sebastain graduating from ICU and onto a different hospital floor!!!!  But, unfortunately, Brooke and her family are not out of the woods.  We all know how necessary yet expensive medical bills can be so she needs our help with the aftermath.  Brooke had just returned to work from maternity leave (which was mostly not paid for) and now she has this.  Not to mention, she pays a pretty hefty sum for therarpy for her four year old autisic daughter (who happens to be a pretty amazing little girl).  Any donation will help this family, no matter how small it may seem.  My friend is a compassionate person and a great nurse.  I feel like this is the least I could do for her.  Thank you, thank you all!
