For the Family of Leo Wilson

This handsome baby boy is Leo Robert Wilson.  With the miracles of science, his parents, Bob and Maggie Wilson were anxiously awaiting the arrival of twins, Leo and Henrik, who were due July of 2018.  

Leo had other plans, wanting to meet his parents and brothers (2 year old Oakley and 12 year old Tyler).  He decided to break out early on May 9th at 9:45pm and Henrik soon followed at 10:21 both weighing in at nearly 3 lbs each.  Henrik stayed in the Neonatal Intensive Care for 56 days and Leo 57 days before finally getting  to go home.

The Wilsons were getting used to the new crazy chaos of life with twins, when suddenly on the morning of September 12, 2018, Leo stopped breathing and lost his heartbeat.  Baby Leo was unable to be revived despite the efforts of the emergency personnel.  

Shortly after Leo left in the ambulance, Henrik developed respiratory problems, was rushed to the hospital and was transported by air ambulance to the Pediatric Intensive Care at Sanford Children’s Hospital in Fargo where he remained for a week.  

Leo’s life was way too short at only 126 days.  Every single one of those days was filled with love, kisses, and snuggles.

As close friends of Bob and Maggie, we have been by their side, supporting them through the pregnancy, NICU stay, Henrik’s recent PICU stay, and tgrough this devastating loss.  To see them go from such overwhelming joy to such unbelievable sadness is indescribable.  There are no words.  

Money does not take away the grieving or pain, but will help ease the financial burden of compounding medical bills and lost wages.  Thank you goes out to everyone that has reached out to Bob and Maggie.

 Every little bit helps!  If you are looking for a way to help the Wilson's, this is a simple but very meaningful way to support them during this difficult time!  

Many thanks,

The Family & Friends of Bob & Maggie Wilson
