Our journey to Crumlin

Hi guys :)
All you all know were due to welcome a little princess in August, but unfortunately it hasn't been plain sailing.
At our 20 week scan we were told they were not happy with the position of her heart. We were referred to a consultant a week later where we got the diagnosis of a Diaphragm hernia , which basically means there was a hole in her chest wall which allowed her tummy up into her chest and move her heart in under her right arm. Thankfully the hole hasn't got any bigger so nothing else can move around , but this also means her tummy is stuck in her chest. The main concern is how her lungs will develop. We were dealt a devastating blow that she will have to be delivered in Dublin and when she is born we will have only seconds if even with her untill she is transferred to Crumlin. She will hopefully be operated on 7-10 days after birth but will need at least 3 month recovery after this operation. We are faced with a long , scary road which involves packing our lives into a suitcase and moving to Dublin at the start of August  to be with our little girl for as long as she needs to be there, when we leave, we won't be coming home till it's the 4 of us together . So to help with our journey (accommodation etc.)I am asking for some help. thanks so much for your support. She's ready to fight and so are we ❤❤
