Of course Luke and Elizabeth were not prepared emotionally or financially for this tragedy, and our hope is to raise enough money that they can focus on grieving their loss and loving their dear little Lucy (and not on the financial strain that could await them). We would like to raise enough money that they can pay their medical costs and honor Eleanor’s short life in a way that will bring them comfort and peace.
Luke and Elizabeth have also specifically requested prayers for comfort, peace, healing, and strength for Lucy and themselves.
Right now, Lucy specifically needs to have her PDA (Patent Ductus Arteriosus, an unclosed hole in the aorta) heal and close, for her brain bleed to heal, to get off of the ventilator, and to decrease her oxygen needs. In addition, there is uncertainty about a possible infection in her trachea, and Luke and Elizabeth have asked for prayer that the upcoming lab results would show that the infection is gone.
