Then came Ellwyn James Klingbeil :)
Everything was fine until about 6/7 hrs after birth, when Ellwyns breathing started to get very inconsistent. Also he was very pale in color. Columbus Hospital then sent the both Elaine and Ellwyn to St Mary’s in Madison. Elaine had to be admitted for 4 nights cause of the csection. Evan stayed by her side the entire time she was there. Ellwyn unfortunately is still in the NICU since. He’s working on his breathing and eating. He ended up getting a whole body blood transfusion the night he was transferred in because he was very anemic. They assume he lost a lot of blood inside the womb, and leaked into Elaine. That has helped I’m tremendously. Now he’s on a 7 day course of antibiotics for an infection they still don’t have a name for. Or never will. Apparently in babies , it’s a broad spectrum kind of thing. He did have a slight heart murmur, still waiting on results for that yet. Other than that, Ellwyns biggest challenge is eating and breathing! Once he does that for a good 2 days worth on his own. They will be set to come home, hopefully.
I made this page for my daughter and her husband because any little donation helps right now. With the driving back and fourth to St Mary’s. Food money and their medical bills. It’s all starting to add up, and I really hate to see them struggle. When all they want is to bring that baby boy home. Keep Praying for them!
Thanks in advance :)
