Help Baby Lianette

This little angel was born on 25 March 2018 6 weeks prematurely. She's been cared for in the High Intensive care unit at Netcare hospital Pretoria East in South Africa. She had to undergo an emergency operation today as it was discovered she has an infection in her stomach.
The outcome was not great! The infection was far worse than was expected with permanent damage caused to her colon. They had to make a large vertical incision to be able to reach all the organs. 3/4 of her colon was removed and all visible infection fluid drained and cleaned. A drainage tube is attached to the tiny piece of colon that is left, with a semi open wound. She is receiving antibiotics and under sedation for today only.
Now we have to wait! This is not her only operation either, mearly the first.
They live nearly 400km away from the hospital. Mom was released yesterday as the medical aid are not willing to keep her in the Hospital.
All the while the medical bills will keep piling up as the medical aid doesn't cover all tests and procedures with only partial cover on other.
The family has really stepped up by helping financially where they can. But we will be needing much more help!
Please help us to give this little angel the best possible chance to fight!! No amount is small!
There are no words to express our gratitude for ANY help.
This tiny little body is in SO much pain
