Baby Taylor's Love Fund (Ray & Jess)

Taylor Bella Krause was born November 25th, 2017 as a 5 week premature infant with a very severe condition called Gastroschisis. Unfortunately, this means that her intestines developed on the outside of her stomach while in the womb. Sweet baby Taylor needed one surgery so far (and possibly multiple corrective surgeries),around the clock care and will spend the next several months in the NICU. The timetable for recovery is still unknown as her intestines are slowly being placed back into her small body, and more importantly the healing time for her to internally function after the fact is unknown. The road ahead is full of unknowns and consumed with constant worry and wishful thinking. Obviously, for Ray and Jess, this causes many set backs for financial incidents of medical bills, hospital stay, missed work, and commuting. This has all been adding up in an absorbent amount and will be continuing until baby Taylor is healthy enough to be off the machines and home to her parents in the long road ahead. Jessica and Ray have been trying to stay strong by staying by Taylor's side to await her recovery for discharge so she can come home. Any donation to Taylor and her parents is much appreciated and will help make each step a little easier. Please keep this little girl in your thoughts and prayers, and thank you for your time and consideration towards a precious life that has been fighting to be apart of this world. A little bit goes a long way.
