Love for little Luca

Our new born son Luca was only 11 days old when he was admitted to the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) at the Stollery for meningitis.

We brought him in Sunday night because he was projectile vomiting, and could not keep anything down. His skin quickly became modelled and he became very lethargic. There are no words to describe our heartbreak when they told us Luca had to have a spinal tap done. They quickly had us admitted and began to explain what they found in his spinal cord fluid.

We are told his course of treatment could last three to four weeks to start, and that he needs at least 2 weeks on IV for his antibiotics.

We are raising money to help with the costs at the hospital and so that Doug can be away from work and we can be together as a family during this very difficult time.

Anything helps and is greatly appreciated!!
