Eva Hope was born on September 4th 2018. She was 4 weeks premature and has a giant omphalocele, this means that all the organs that should have been in her abdomen grew in a sac outside of her body. In her short life so far she has already fought off a near fatal unidentified infection and suffered two ruptures in the sac that protects the organs. She had to undergo a lengthy surgery to replace the ruptured sac with a plastic silo and repair two holes in her bowel, and is now fighting a fungal infection. While Eva was fighting Elaine's c-section incision had a blood pocket rupture and had to be reopened. The doctors were unable to do a reclosure procedure for fear of another blood pocket. So she remains with an open wound that needs to be repacked with gauze twice daily for the next several months. Needless to say neither of us have been able to go back to work. If there is anyway you can help us stay by her side and care for Glen it would be greatly appreciated.
