With that being said, we all want her closer to us- especially Drew- for Christmas. All of her medical staff has agreed that she can be transported to St. Joseph's Hospital in Milwaukee which was her planned birth hospital, but the cost of transport would be at the family's expense. The estimated cost of that transport is $6,000.
We do not know how long Lynn will be in Marshfield prior to delivery or how long the baby will remain inpatient after birth. Every day Lynn remains in Marshfield is another day Drew won't see his mama. A three year old needs to spend as much time as he can with his mama, especially at Christmas. Drew calls his unborn sister "Baby Taco" and talked to her in mama's belly every day. When Drew was told his mama and Baby Taco were at the doctor, he said that he thought Baby Taco had the sneezes.
$6,000 is a lot of money but nothing in comparison to having Lynn and Baby Taco near family for the love and support they need. If Drew can see his mama on Christmas Day, even if it is in the hospital, it will be worth every penny.
Thank you and may you and your family have a very happy holiday!
