On September 28, 2018 at 2:02 am, Josh Comprosky and Chelsie Nichole delivered a beautiful baby girl they named Autumn Rose Comprosky. The delivery was a successful home birth with a midwife. Chelsie did amazing and Josh was by her side through the whole labor and delivery. Right after her birth they noticed she had a large growth on her head that they weren't aware of. She immediately went to Scottish Rite to get it checked out. At this point, she received some oxygen due to her levels being low and needed an IV and blood work. They then x-rayed her chest and discovered that several vertebrae were not formed correctly. An EKG was done and she was found to have a hole in her heart as well as coarctation of her aorta. At this point, Scottish Rite had to transfer her to Egleston in order to have heart surgery. She is currently in the cardiac ICU at Egleston and will be having heart surgery Monday morning, October 1. She will need an additional surgery after she is 6 months old to fix the hole in her heart. The large growth has now taken a back seat to the heart surgery but a neurosurgeon is working with Autumn and her team to decide how to approach the growth after heart surgery. She will have surgery to remove the growth at some point. In addition to this, Autumn appears to have something similar to down's syndrome. We will not know exactly what syndrome until test results come back.
Josh and Chelsie are amazing parents. She has two brothers and a sister. Little Autumn is surrounded by so much love and affection. I am putting this out there on their behalf because this is a difficult and trying time. Autumn needs her parents to be with her as much as possible. This means travel, hotels, and food out. In addition to all of these things, the estimated cost for this current stay and her first surgery is $500,000. Anything helps in times like these.
