Emergency Newborn (9 days old) Open Heart Surgery

Donation protected
Hi, we are the Morales family.  February 15, 2023 will be a day our family will never forget. I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl weighing 5 Ibs and 5 oz. Per protocol, my family was sent to postpartum care in the Maternity Ward for two days. Upon being discharged our daughter's oxygen stats were off and a cardiologist was called. Unfortunately, the doctors discovered a rare heart defect called "Supracardiac Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venus Return". This affects 1 out of 10,000 babies born. As of now, there is no explanation as to how and why this defect occurs. At three days old our daughter was immediately transported to a children's hospital that had a Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU) to be stabilized and scheduled for open heart surgery on February 24, 2023. Upon completing the surgery the surgeon ran into a pulmonary hypertension issue with her lungs which has now left her chest open while sedated while they determine if a second surgery is needed.  As you can imagine, medical bills are at an all-time high even with insurance coverage. On top of basic living expenses and now her aftercare that will need to be managed for the rest of her life. We are asking for donations and prayers for our princess.
