Due to his extremely small size Wyatt is not able to breathe on his own. The first few weeks of his life have been a rollercoaster. He spent 4 weeks being treated for MRSA, had multiple collapsed lungs and after 61 days was finally able to be held by his parents for the first time.
Even with insurance Wyatt's medical bills are a huge expense. To make matters worse, Laura Lynn has also been forced to forfeit her maternity leave pay.
Unaware of the program's intricacies, Laura Lynn returned to work 4 weeks after her c-section with the intention of taking the remaining 8 weeks leave when Wyatt comes home from the hospital. Because she cut her leave short she has been required to refund her disability pay and will not be allowed to take paid disability leave a second time for the same reason.
Your donations will help to pay for Wyatt's ongoing medical care including the insurance deductibles and copays.
"Wyatt the Warrior" is expected to come home by Thanksgiving but will require care from a home care nurse as an infant, as well as ongoing treatment to aid in his development for the first few years of his life.
Any donation you can offer would be greatly appreciated and help BJ, Laura Lynn and Wyatt get back on track for happy, healthy life.
