Joe & Hope's Babies Medical Funds

My Nephew Joe and his Beautiful Wife, Hope were filled with joy when they found out they were expecting identical twin girls! They have a three year old son and we were filled with so much joy adding to their little family. In August they found out the babies weren't doing very good. They had TTTS - Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome. This is a disorder that affects identical twin pregnancies where two fetuses share a placenta. This condition develops when blood flow to the babies becomes unequal, putting them at risk for early delivery, neurological damage and more.  Joe, Hope and their son had to fly to Washington State where she had to undergo surgery to separate the blood vessels the babies shared. The surgery was successful, but one of the babies was considerably smaller than the other. On January 3rd the Doctors directed Hope to not go to work, and stay home on Bed Rest to prevent premature Labor. We were all praying that Hope would make it to 32 weeks to give the babies more time to grow and develop.  Last Friday, January 19th, was 32 weeks, They made it! On January 23rd, Hope started having some pain and the babies were born by C-section, 3.7lbs and 4.00lbs. On Wednesday, January 24th, the Babies were Emergency Airlifted from Bozeman to Billings MT where there is a better PICU facility. There are not living accommodations for the parents at the Hospital. Joe and Hope are experiencing unexpected lodging and living expenses in Billings. The Medical Staff is telling them the Babies will need to remain in the Hospital for up to a month to give them time to grow and gain strength. The unexpected living expenses and loss of wages have created a real financial hardship. Any monitary help and prayers would be greatly appreciated.

Hope is doing well but very tired. They look forward to the day They can bring the babies home.
