Paulie was recovering from a strep infection and on Saturday night he was rushed to the ER via ambulance because of substantial bleeding from his trach. It was discovered that his platelets were very low ( what helps blood clot ) and he has pneumonia.
Paulie was admitted to the local PICU, stabilized and transferred to CHOP where he remains stable but on a lot of respiratory support. His lungs are very sick and his stay is expected to be quite lengthy.
The financial burden of treatment, travel, and lodging has become overwhelming. We are asking that anything you are able to contribute to this amazing, strong, local family would be much appreciated!!
The goal is to make sure Paul, Marta, Sofia, and Paulie can spend time together as a family especially at this time of year, without needing to stress about finances.
