It breaks my heart so much to see that my new born baby is going through this medical ailment. Right from the time I had her ultrasound test, The doctor noticed that my baby has heart problems and best solution was a cesarean section to give birth to her at Stollery Hospital.
After  her birth, The doctors discovered that my daughter has an abnormally structured heart and vessel, such heart is incomplete and has holes between the chamber partition or narrow vessels. The warning signs of CHD include a heart murmur, cyanosis, fast breathing, poor feeding, poor weight gain and the ability to exercise and excessive sweating.
She also has what they call Tet spells which causes her to turn purple when crying due to de-oxygenated blood flowing through the wrong direction and lack of oxygen is very dangerous. She has to be monitored so closely.
They are so many of you who don't know what God has done for you to have your baby the right way. It is so sad seeing my first dream child going through all these. The doctors keep changing tubes and wires connected to the equipment. My baby won't be able to put on weight to grow because her lungs are not able to grow. It been so tough for me as I've to stay beside my daughter every day which has put a stop to my daily hustle while my husband working schedule has been altered, We have a lot of doctor's appointments.
We've started selling our properties so that her medical bills can be met but all we could gather is imaginary to what is needed. We have raised the campaign amount so we would be able to cover all expenses for the next 5 years, as the early growing years are crucial to her future. Ella also requires 24-hour care that we can not provide due to physical and financial limitations. Please keep my family in prayers and also help share the campaign with friends. We appreciate your love and support during these trying times. God bless. ♥
