DeCosta Family

Hello everyone, my niece LydianKae was born on November 17, 2020 prematurely at 5 pounds 8 ounces 16 inches long. She has been long awaited for by her 5 brothers and mommy and daddy. Unfortunately, my sister faced some complications during this pregnancy battling anemia, and low blood pressure along with many other complications. LydianKae measured small throughout the pregnancy due to these complications. An emergency c-section was done to deliver her safely while also trying to keep my sister healthy. Since her birth LydianKae has not been able to gain weight, and keeps losing. At almost a pound lighter than when she was born they were sent to the Children’s Hospital in St. Louis today due to abnormal blood work showing signs of a rare metabolic disorder. They are working hard, but have suffered hardships. My sister is a substitute teacher and has been laid off due to COVID, and now my brother in law is missing work between being there for his new born daughter, as well as their 5 boys hours away from St. Louis. Any help would be greatly appreciated, and any prayers are welcome! At this time we are not sure how long their stay in the hospital will be, as we are still waiting on more answers. I will provide any updates as soon as we know more.
