Zohie Rylynn

I am trying to raise money to help my daughter, Rikki.  She gave birth to my granddaughter, Zohie on April 12, 2014.  On April 13, 2014, Zohie was rushed to Monroe Carell Children's Hopsital at Vanderbilt.  She was diagnosed with Laryngomalacia.  Everything she swallows goes to her lungs causing her to asperate.  She had surgery on May 9, 2014 to have a Mickey button placed in her stomach for feeding.  She is not able to eat, suck, swallow.  Due to severe acid reflux, the tube had to be moved to her intestines from her stomach.  She is on a continuous feed.  Zohie has " spells " which cause her to stop breathing.  Her oxygen level and heart rate drop.  After 4 months of Vanderbilt's NICU, she was released Monday August 4th.  Today, August 9th, she returned because her heart rate dropped to 30 and her pulse ox to 52.  Rikki is not able to work because she has to care for Zohie.  She is on state insurance and it does not cover in home nursing that Zohie requires.  Vanderbilt has given Rikki the training she needs to care for Zohie, but again, the insurance will not pay for oxygen at home.  Tim, her husband, Zohie's father, is the only one working, but the bills are not being covered and are starting to stack up. She is exhausted from worry on how to pay the bills and is afraid of loosing her home.  They live 33 miles from Vanderbilt and she can only go maybe twice a week because she can not afford to put gas in her car.  I do what I can to help her, but it's not enough.  Please... can you help her?  Can you help my grandbaby, Zohie?  May God Bless you all !!!
