Medical expenses

We are trying to raise money as our daughter Peyton who’s almost 7 months has had medical issues for the past 4 months. We have been to Helen Devos, 2 hospital admits, Mary free bed appointments, physical therapy, swallow study, she still has a sweat test to check for cystic fibrosis, an ear nose and throat specialist and she sees a peds neurologist Tuesday. Peyton wears a helmet for her head deformity and sees the neurologist to see what’s causing her low muscle tone. This has been a long road and we still aren’t finished with specialist. She just seen a peds lung specialist this week and found out she’s silently aspirating. This may be something that gets better as she gets older or might be neurological. She wasn’t gaining weight for 2 months and they wanted a feeding tube. She has since gained weight and is getting better in that aspect.My husband and I work full time we do not live off the state. I still currently work and have no personal time so I don’t get paid when I have to take her to all her appointments. I do have two other kids also that I take care of. This was the last thing I wanted was to ask people to help but I feel like most will understand and be willing to help. If you can’t help please share this so we can continue to live and make Peyton’s live good and make her appointments without the strain of money issues. We paid for her helmet that were still making payments to Mary free bed. The helmet was almost 3,000 and with my insurance we still have to pay 550.00. We hope people will understand why we’re asking for help as we’re not the type to ask. Peyton did also have Bronchiolitis which turned into pneumonia. This little girl has been through a lot and will still have a long road.  One of the scariest things he’s going to the pediatric neurologist on Tuesday the 17th and find out what’s causing the low muscle tone. Looking up diagnosis is that caused a low muscle tone is a very scary information that we’ve gotten and we’re all nerved up to find out what is causing all this for a little girl.  She now has to have three different medications and nebulizer treatments two times a day for 30 days and may have to continue after seeing the pediatric lung specialist in six weeks again .
